Very versatile adaptor for US, China and Australia – Safe UK to US/China Travel AC Adapter Plug and 3-Way Splitter (250V) Reviews

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

Pros:
The prongs rotate to suit parallel-type (USA/Canada) or V-type (Australia). The socket is listed as UK, but seems to accept almost any type of plug, it definitely works with 2-pin european plugs. Build quality is good, and the indicator light is useful.
Cons:
Minor problems with British Standard plugs which have a plastic sleeve on the live and neutral pins. There may not be a valid contact if the plug is pushed all the way into the adaptor, therefore do not push a BS plug all the way in.
Other:
Indicator light works for both US (110volt) and Australia (220volt). Prongs are stong and have not been bent by a lot of rough handling during travel.
Bottomline:
More useful than I expected when I bought it.
