Works! – Fused US Travel Power Adapter with Switch 100V~240V Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Works!
Cheap!
Sturdy
Fits the US socket well
Fits EU plugs well, both slim, ungrounded CEE 7/16 and fat, grounded CEE 7/7
Cons:
If you use a fat plug once, slim plugs won't fit so nicely anymore, they will wobble and fall out
It's called a "fused adapter", yet there is no fuse inside
The adapter bottom reads 10A 250V, yet the wires inside are rather thin, and the switch is rated for only 6A
Other:
Looks nice, works better than cheaper, simpler SKUs out there
Bottomline:
Don't rely on it for high power constant duty applications.
