- excellent universal adaptor that works in all countries - small and comes with a soft pouch with strap - has an LED indication - sturdy & solid construction without any loose ends - comes with an English instruction manual
<B>DO NOT PLUG ANY HIGH POWERED DEVICES IN THIS UNIT!</B>. With the first one I bought, I had a mini fireworks show when I plugged a kettle into this unit. As a result, the plastic surrounding the metal pins melted quite a bit and the pins would not retract any longer. So for safety precautions, do not plug high powered devices like kettles, irons, fridges into this unit.
The "surge protection" (if it works) of this unit makes it a deal breaker, although I have had no power surges in any of the units I've used before.
At this price, buy a few! Not only it's great for travelling, it's also great if you have appliaces purchased overseas with a different pin. I personally bought 3 of this!
