Works as expected – Travel All-in-One Universal AC Adapter Reviews

posted by catdog on 07/19/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Combines a number of different country adapters into one unit.
- It has a locking system so only one plug can slide out at a time, and the button locks it into place
Cons:
- The adapter I received does not support a ground pin, so only 2 pin devices can be plugged into it. I was unable to use this for my laptop as it has a 3 pin plug (with a ground pin).
- Reasonably large
- The locking spring inside came loose, so I had to take it apart and glue the spring back in its place
Other:
Just like any other adapter with moving parts, it can be a bit flimsy. I found the solid ones which can only adapt to one country (eg one apapter for USA, a different one for EU) are much more sturdy and reliable than this adapter.
Bottomline:
Does it's job, but only just. Better off with an adapter that is solid or clips different parts together to avoid the sliding parts.
