Bad inner design. Connector blades to weak. – Flat to Round Power Plug Converter Reviews

Pros:
Its cheap.
Cons:
Its too cheap.
Other:
I bought 5 of these. The first one I used with an US type Bose Bluetooth speaker's adapter seems to not work. So I tried another one and seemed to get the same problem. I opened the power converter and discovered that the inner connectors to the US plug side was very thin and did not have a form that would properly connect to the american plug when I put it in. The metal also was so thin and without proper resilience so that wiggling the US plug some would deform the connector plates so that they no longer did connect to the US plug anymore. Based on the thickness of the plates and the loss of resilience in the connectors, I would not use this for anything more than say 50 watts or so. If there had been some sort of spring behind the connectors, then this would had been much better.
Bottomline:
Try to find a more expensive model. Maybe its better.
