Very useful, but not for high-power devices – Round to Flat Power Plug Convertor Reviews

(1) This converter is very cheap. Similar device in my neighborhood is ten dollars, (2) This is extremely simple, light and tiny, good for travelers
Max current is only 6A. I doubt you can use that convertor for such power-consuming devices as a hairdryer. For example, 1600W hairdryer would require current I=1600W/110V=14.5A, which is more than twice as much as allowed.
I bought five of them, and in addition I bought a couple of expensive high-current converters.
Good device for low-power devices
