Flat Pack Power Adapter – Mini Worldwide Power Plug Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Definitely packs quite flat, but the volume might be about equal to some other small cube shaped adapters available at DX such as the very tiny SKU.18126 which is more intuitive and easier to use.
A bit like one of those wood or plastic puzzles except the first time you attempt it without the accompanying diagrams, it can very difficult (depending on which country you're in) since you're never quite sure what the result should look like. Almost need to carry the instructions if you're on a world trip.
Swing-out pin seems fragile and could snap off easily. Other parts too seem a bit frail when in use some serious and frequent pushing and shoving is required to reconfigure the adapter.
Bit too complicated without really being all that small. The flat pack shape might benefit some travellers and hide away nicely in, say, a document case, but I prefer the easier to use cube shaped alternatives found elsewhere on DX. SKU.18126 is very small and one or two slightly larger alternatives also include surge protection - all are very easy and intuitive to use compared to this slightly fiddly design.
