    Works like a charm

    I'm currently in the UK with an iPad Air 2 and my HTC 10 phone and Kindle Voyage (yes, I'm one of those weird tech mixers). Anyway, was concerned about frying my devices but the 3-port USB International Wall Charger works like a charm (well, haven't needed to charge the Kinlde yet but assuming it will be fine). Simply attached the correct plug adapter to the unit, removed the USB cable from its original charger and plugged the USB cable into the international wall USB charger and plugged it into the outlet -- works like a charm. The USB port lights up to show it's working and my phone and iPad show they're charging. Most tablets and smartphones these days are dual voltage so are built to handle a range of power (110-240v, I believe) so as long as your device falls within that range and is a dual votltage device, you'll be fine). It is not a converter, so don't use if your device is rated as single voltage and actually needs the power converted.

    It "kind of" works

    I purchased this device to take to Greece in order to charge cell phones, a laptop and my Fitbit. Charging one device at a time, it seemed to work OK. Multiple devices plugged in at the same time caused unusually slow charging. The biggest problem was with the design... I found I was unable to plug it into most outlets because of the proximity of other devices or obstructions. Because of it's design, this unit essentially had to be plugged into a wall outlet that was alone and not within 6 inches of any other device, wall corner or furniture. In addition, all four hotels that I stayed in actually had USB style wall outlets that one could use to charge devices... so in reality, this device really wasn't necessary in my case.

    Promising Premise, Poor Performance

    This looked great: multiple USB ports with an easy adaptor. I've purchased Insignia items before, and was hoping for the best. Unfortunately, the adapter stopped working on its maiden voyage to Iceland (European outlet adapter). I tried it in several different outlets in various destinations, but had little luck. It did work about 20% of the time, but this wasn't enough to power the iPhone, iPad, or headphones I'd packed. Unfortunately (not thinking), I tossed the box before I left, so I'm outta luck for a return, but next time I'd pay extra for something a little better made.

    Chinese garbage

    I purchased this charger on 9/7/2018 a few hours before I was heading out of the country. Unfortunately, it lasted only one day in London and then died. After traveling inside Europe, tried the other plug and it was still defective. The light would come on and no charge or power to my device. The worst part is I arrived back to the states after the small 15 day return-policy so Best Buy won't take it back. I should know better to always stick with Amazon. There is a happy ending. AMEX has a product return insurance policy built into their cards -- so they will be refunding me my purchase price.

    This is a nice compact sized wall charger for 3 usb devices. One caution however, you cannot charge an iPad Pro with two other devices at the same time. It will work with two phones and an Apple Watch. I did not try it with three phones. One nice thing about it is it comes with all the adaptors needed to travel internationally and it can be plugged in to a wall socket in the U.S. too. I have only used it here in the U.S. and in England so far and was pretty happy. If you are needing to charge higher amp devices like the iPad with other devices at the same time you may want to consider a different charger or just a second convertor.

    Pointless Purchase

    We went on a massive tour of England and Europe, so I bought this to make charging our phones and cameras easier. NOPE. The only plug that fit was the one for England. We were abroad for 30 days, and only in England for 7 of those. I had to buy a new plug for every new country. I wish I could have gotten a refund on this, but Best Buy only gives you 30 days to return anything. Save your money, do better research on what size plugs you'll need. Learn from my mistake. It cost 10-15 EUROS every time I had to buy a plug in each country we visited.

    The price seems a bit steep for something so simple, but it is worth the money if you travel abroad with multiple USB devices to charge and limited (hopefully bedside) power outlets available in most hotel rooms. It worked perfectly at two airports and for one day in a hotel, but an internal connection must have been loose because I subsequently had to wiggle it in the socket to get even an intermediate connection. I exchanged it for a new one once I returned. I assume this one will work but won't know until November.

    Got this for travels and the adapters fit everything I needed them to. Be warned: this is NOT a converter. It's great for my switch, cell phone, juul, headphones, etc. BUT this is not for single voltage items. Make sure your electronics are dual voltage as this uses the voltage from the outlet. All in all probably one of the best buys (hehehehe) that ive made.

    My wife and I purchased two of these ahead of our trip to Europe. The charger comes with all of the possible outlet adapters you might need and it's nice to have more than 1 USB port for use. There was issues getting our iPhone XR and iPad Air 2 to recognize a charge when the charger first gets plugged into the wall. A small annoyance that was fixed by unplugging the USB cable from the charger and re-connecting.

    Bulky but does the job

    The connection between the USB port and the various plug adapters is a bit clunky. The different adapters snap and lock in but the design is a bit bulky and definitely can be designed better. Overall, it didn't fail and worked in charging my devices in Singapore and Australia. There are much slimmer and sleek (therefore, more travel friendly) designs out there - I had to get this one in a pinch but on the next trip, definitely thinking ahead and purchasing a more suitable one.

    With 2 phones, a camera, and an iPad to charge, the Insignia 3 port USB International Wall Charger proved invaluable. The wall connection worked well and the speed of charging was good, even with all three USB ports being used. I cannot imagine traveling without one. I bought it for a trip to Europe but will now use it at home and for US travel. It has clearly reduced the need for the number of wall chargers to one for all of my devices. I have recommended it already to family and friends.

    My daughter and I were planning travel to England and were struggling with how we could economically use a standard international voltage convertor to recharge our 6 iDevices, two cameras and a portable speaker on our trip. This turned out to be perfect. Three USB devices can be plugged in and charged at a time which was perfect (we ended up buying a second one as well). Works great and had similar charging times to using the stock chargers that came with the various devices in the US.

    Doesnt do well with apple chargers or products, have to rotate the cable to different ports everytime you want to charge. Most of the time, I can only plug in 1 phone and that kind of defeats the whole point of this product. I have a lot of things to charge while I'm out on the road and this adapter isnt reliable.

    Bought this to use on a trip to Italy. Plugged it in to two prong European socket. Plugged iPhone recharge cord in and then connected FireWire connector to iPhone. Charge cycle didn’t start. Unplugged the USB connector and replugged it Into the charger socket and iPhone began charging cycle. Don’t know if this is a quirk of the iPhone (iPhone 6) or the wall charger.

    I was going on a trip to Japan and South Korea. We needed it for South Korea. But I plugged it at home to make sure that it was working first and it did. But then when we got to Japan, and plugged it in, the outlet stopped working. We didn’t get to use it all. I did check many times and sue the different converters but I had no luck.

    I bought this adapter set for my first trip to Europe. (10 days, 1 part Santorini and 3 days in Athens). It completely served its purpose in Santorini but as I was packing, disconnecting it from the wall the adequate adapter piece came apart. The main piece still works, but without the broken piece it went from savior to paper weight real quick.

    I needed something to plug my laptops into, not just phone/tablet USB chargers. So this was only of partial use to me. When I could not find Euro adapters at all in the store, I asked a sales person for help and he fetched this for me. I had no idea until I got back to my lodging that this was not what I had been looking for. Still pretty annoyed and disappointed about my experience.

    I recently traveled to Spain which has a different outlet than what we use in the US. You must have a converter if you plan on charging your phone. Most hotels do not offer USB to charge you phones. It is a must. My friends didn't take one and had to use mine. In fact, we ran into a family who ask to borrow mine at a restaurant. Don't board the plane without one. It worked like a charm.

    After traveling to Europe I quickly learned that the USB ports did not work for charging any of my devices. The electrical current exchange did not convert electricity to the USB ports. I traveled to 4 different countries and had the same problem in each country. Since I was gone for over a month I was not able to exchange or return the item.
