Very useful – Universal European AC Plug Travel Adapter Reviews

Pros:
Can convert almost any plug to SCHUKO or French type. I use it for my UK PDA charger. If I'll get some new UK or US gadgets, I definitely buy more of them.
Cons:
If you are a complete moron/children/murderer, you can connect grounding pin of UK plug to live contact of wall socket and kill somebody. There is no safety barrier, so this thing can be dangerous to inexpert user. This is probably the main reason why I didn't seen this type of adaptor here in EU.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good if you know what are you doing. Dangerous if not.
