Good Cheap Adapter – Universal AU Travel AC Power Adapter Plug (250V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap as - Adapters in Australia cost 5x this amount or more. Great for charging electronic devices bought overseas. Works as intended fine.
Cons:
The build quality seems a little to be desired, when i plugged in a two circular prong device it's still able to move side to side if you force it.. But at this price you can't expect perfect fits for all adapters. Still leaves you abit skeptical as to whether its safe for such a device to handle mains 240V power. NO GROUNDING - if the device uses a ground prong DO NOT USE THIS ADAPTER! Most consumer electronic chargers don't need it but for larger items you'd be much better off getting a quality adapter.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you just bought some small consumer electronic device overseas/here - get this. Its cheap and more than adequate for such purposes.
