    While in France in several locations we used this. It worked in one location. However, the rest of the trip it got hot and would not charge our phones, I decided to keep it because it does work on the converter setting.heat up my curlers, and the hair dryer. But this made cell phones loose power on the Adapter setting. Had to buy another Adapter from the hotel for phones, Samsung.

    No matter how much money you spend on these converters, they all feel cheap built. I haven't used it yet but will be traveling to Spain in a month and will update. I will say that this has a warning telling you to not use more than 10 min and that the USB ports ONLY work when it's in adapter mode. That doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy but I guess I'll find out. The great thing is that most of my electronics are dual voltage and I will not have to worry about converting the voltage.

    I used this product while on an over seas mission. The converter worked for 8 months until it decided to short circuit, causing the breaker for the condo to trip...in Prague. The design of this converter is excellent and convenient. I do wish it had a fuse so could have contrine to use it. Because of the way it died, I did not plug it in again.

    Hangs loose and almost falls off the wall. If you can keep it balanced ( I used a box to prop it up ), it does indeed charge your devices. Unfortunately I missed the return window. I won't be taking this on a trip again.

    Nice and compact but difficult to maintain on the outlet based on your foreign country’s outlet. Tends to turn the fireign country’s outlet based on the fact they have an outlet switch on every outlet.

    This works but there are better adaptors out there at the same price. Found an adaptor and converter for less money and higher quality with case on line. Best Buy should upgrade its offer.

    The converter worked, however, it ran hot and created a lot of noise while in use. The block is also awkward to plug in and is heavy which caused it to sag in the receptacle.

    Although product had high ratings, no explanation of what to convert. Did not work for me.
