    Very handy for travelling to various places.
    Does everything advertised.

    Just be careful to not use with items requiring more than the rated wattage, nor for items not equipped for the local voltage (autotransformer, dual voltage switch, etc.). If your item is intended for the local voltage and you only need plug configuration, this is the best item I’ve come across for low wattage items. (Laptop, cellphone, GPS, etc.)

    Only used the Euro settings on this. The main problem was that the bulk of the adapter and the fact that it did not securely fit into the circle-shaped outlet meant that it would not remain stable once it was plugged into the outlet. We found that we had to use shims made of folded strips of paper to wedge in between the adapter and the outlet in order to get the plug prongs to maintain their contact, and had to spend 5-10 minutes adjusting the position before we could get it to work. This was not a one-time occurrence: we had to do this every time we wanted to use the adapter in Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, and Poland. It worked, but barely did its job.

    I bought this adapter to charge my digital camera in Poland. This adapter was fairly easy to use and convert plugs as needed. It’s great that it goes both ways, for example if I wanted to use a European appliance in the US. I used it a few times with no problems.

    Just make sure what you need is an adapter and not converter. This product will not convert voltage. Many battery chargers (cameras, laptops, etc) already convert voltage so all you need is an adapter. Just check the printed label on the cord.
