Cheap and good – Universal US Travel Power Adapter Plug Reviews

posted by Dehumanizer666 on 10/03/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It's cheap, well built and it works. All cables (european) I have connected to it were holding firmly in the adapter, better than in some other adapters I have, even though someone complained that it's quite loose.
Cons:
When connecting european plug to the adapter, the third grounding/earthing contact is not connected, so I wouldn't use it with very high power devices which require the third grounding contact (even they would work but in case of some failure inside the device there is a risk of electric shock), but for regular devices it's fine.
Other:
Works as expected, I haven't had any problems with it so far.
Bottomline:
I can recommend this to anyone who wants to connect a non-US device to a US power outlet. Of course check the device voltage, since this is just a simple adapter, it does not change the voltage.
