    Met All My Needs

    I bought this adapter/converter because I was going to Ireland and bringing all of my devices. The adapter feature ended up being al I needed, since my Samsung phone, MacBook Pro, and Sony camera battery charger all were ok with the electrical current supplied in Ireland. The converter would have been needed for a blow dryer or other small electrical device, which I did not bring. Most hotels provide these. The device gives you many options: adapter for a variety of plug configurations, an option to convert the circuit and two USB ports. The only plug adapter I used was for Ireland and the UK, but I will keep this gadget and be able to use it if I travel to other places. I thought it was a good value and met my needs perfectly.

    This converter/adapter worked great while on my 3 weeks Europe trip. Make sure you follow the directions otherwise you could have a problem, most of the time I left it in Adapter mode which works for almost everything ( cell phone, laptops, camera battery charger ) the only time I ended up using the Converter mode was when my GF needed to use a hairdryer or her curling on. All in all this does exactly what it is supposed to do! Just be sure to read the directions before you use it.

    This is the perfect accessory for someone who likes to travel. First, off its compact and light weight. Second, it's all in one (unlike others that you have to attach loose adapters to make them work in other countries). Third, it's a converter. Lastly, it has 2 USB outlets that are perfect if you have multiple devices that need charging. However, one small negative would be that you can't use the USB outlets if it's in converter mode. For me that wasn't a huge deal but could be for others.

    We used this adapter/converter throughout Italy. We traveled with another couple who had their adapter/converter device stolen (long story). In any event, they had to use our adapter/converter and we were able to charge 3 mobile phones on the adapter setting completely overnight. Then in the morning the women changed the setting to converter and were able to use their hair dryers and curling irons.

    Haven't used it yet. I purchased a converter and adapters for our trip to 4 European Countries. I came looking for a converter and 3 different adapters for our trip. The wonderful salesman helped us and we discovered that we could purchase 1 converter and it would include all of the adapters that we would need. It also has 2 USB ports so we are ready to go. Can't wait to use this!

    This little item is very useful for travel to many countries. We used t in England and in the EU. It worked well with my hair straightener. It also has two USB ports which came in handy while we were traveling. But FYI- you cant use a converter with a heating pad- it fried it. But that was our mistake as the device info said it was not good for heating pads.

    This product did the job in more than 6 major cities in Italy. Charged iPhones (7 & X), Apple Airpods, Apple Watch, a Tripp-Lite Power Bank adapter, and Dell laptop perfectly. Great value to stay charged up while visiting Italy. Used Adapter Mode for my Dell laptop and USB. Curling Iron had to be used in converter mode. USB charging only works in Adapter mood.

    My wife bought this for her trip to China. Was a little confusing at first due to the levers used to change plug settings made it seem like these were used to change it from an adapter to a converter. Worked well, and didn’t fry any computers or phones. The USB ports were very helpful.

    This device is supposed to be universal, but when I arrived in the UK I was surprised to find out it wouldn't fit the outlets because of a black springy thing where the third prong was supposed to be. I figured out that it pops out and fits into the outlets - so this is truly universal! And the USB outlets work as advertised.

    I bought this item during an online sale and was pleasantly surprised at how lightweight and compact it was. It is easy to use, with intuitive manipulations for different country electrical outlet style. The 2 USB ports are very helpful for charging smartphones and iPads.

    Had to decide between bigger unit that held 2 charging items and had multiple plugs for many countries and small EU unit which only held One .choose the former which I think was the right pick If space challenged with packing this is pretty big

    Charge your devices or use your hair dryer anywhere. Two USB ports and one three prong plug. Use the adapter mode for phones, camera, laptops, etc and the converter mode for things like hair dryers. It does weigh one pound which might turn some people off.

    This item is all you need for traveling to other countries. Just remember to switch to converter mode when you are using a hairdryer or an item that uses more power. I may or may not have lost a hairdryer due to forgetting to switch it to converter mode.

    We used this adapter/converter during our trip to Italy. Item was user friendly, easy to plug in the wall outlets and charged our phones and tablets very well. I would highly recommend this item for those going on a trip to Italy and Europe. Great buy!

    We purchased this unit for a trip to China, Hong Kong, and S. Korea. We were able to find an outlet that matched one of the plug option in every hotel we visited. We were able to keep all of our devices nicely charged. No problem.

    Works as expected and nice to have both adaptor and convertor in one. The only issue is weight is such that difficult to stay in the outlet plug without some support as fell out often unless put something under the convertor.

    We bought this for our trip to Iceland and it definitely came in handy. There was no outlets in Iceland like we have in the states so the converter was well worth the cost.

    Worked flawlessly on a recent trip to the U.K. Plus the USB ports came in very handy charging our two phones. Relatively small size and all-in-one design make it easy to pack.
