Nice idea, but bad quality – Universal Travel AC Power Adapter/Charger - Black (UK/EU/US Plug) Reviews

posted by vsego on 09/17/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The ideas itself: you can switch between different plugs.
Cons:
Bad quality: 1. Changes between plugs are not smooths. 2. Occasionally loses a contact for a fracture of a second. Very bad for desktop computers and other devices that depend on the constant flow of electricity. I've solved #2 by buying a different plug adapter, so it was definitely a problem with these (I got two).
Other:
Some plug labels would be nice, since Euro-plug is tight (as it should be) and may confuse first-time users.
Bottomline:
With a bit more effort on the producer's side, this could've been a great travel device.
