Clever design and well made – Universal World Travel AC Adapter with USB Power Port Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The convenience of a universal power adapter which also includes a USB charging capability is great.
Seems to be well made, and includes a small carrying case.
Supports Australian plugs and sockets, among many other types.
Cons:
The USB indicator light seems to be either intermittent or does not illuminate at all, even though it did provide a USB charge to the devices I tested.
Other:
One thing these adapters never seem to mention in their marketing or instructions is what happens if you try to use them with a device which requires earth protection on a 3rd pin, such as Australian 3-pin plugs. There's nothing to stop you connecting an earthed device to the adapter, but you won't have any earthing protection. However most devices which people travel with don't have an earth pin anyway.
Bottomline:
Light and well made, very handy.
