Good Product, Does exactly what it needs to! – Universal AU Travel AC Power Adapter Plug (250V) Reviews

Pros:
Universal socket supports different plugs Seems durable enough, and works as expected. Construction appears good, comparing it to a locally purchased similar item and It is of the same build quality and plastic appears the same.
Cons:
No earth pin, only Active and Neutral on this adaptor, whilst it will take an earthed plug, the earth will then not be live. I would suggest using this only with devices that have no earth pin on their plug or connection. Rated at 5Amps according to dx/manufacturer. This is half the amperage of a standard australian wall socket. Perhaps you should not use this item on large draw devices (ie: devices that have heating elements, or large lights, etc)
Other:
Bottomline:
Good for the price, Works well with my 18650 trustfire battery charger, as this device is low draw and has no earth.
