Good as arduino power adapter – Ultra-Mini USB Power Adapter/Charger - EU Plug (110~240V AC) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
I've bought this adapter to power my Arduino directly with the USB cable. It works fine (in Switzerland on a 220V) and it occupies really a small amount of space in the outlet.
Cons:
It doesn't have the ground pole (as in Switzerland) but other than that no cons. I bought it for a purpose and it works great!
Other:
I didn't try to make measurements about the current and voltage. It powered up my arduino and that was I bought it for. Can power up USB gadgets without using your computer.
Bottomline:
I bought two, now the USB gadget section of DealExtreme is more interesting :)
