Universal Travel Adapter
Fantastic Adaptor (not a converter!)
I bought my first one of these several years ago when I noticed it while waiting in the checkout line. I used it on my next trip abroad and ever since have always kept a couple in my suitcase. It's also become a favorite stocking stuffer for family members who travel.
I love not having to carry bulky UK/Hong Kong adaptors! I do keep the instructions with the adaptor though, since even after using it for years I have a hard time remembering exactly how to configure it for the UK and Hong Kong.
As someone else noted, this is an adaptor, not a converter, so it will only work with items that are dual voltage.

Don't buy this!
I read all the shining reviews for this adapter and went out of my way to drive to the San Diego store (45") to buy this. As soon as I plugged in (in Holland) both of my small appliances (blow dryer & make-up mirror) got fried, never to work again. Very disappointing to say the least. Leads me to question the entire online review system. Buy a chunky, more expensive adapter.

Works very well
I just came back from a trip to Europe. This adapter worked in Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and France. We charged iPad and phones with it.
If you have several devices, it might be a good idea to take two of these.

Smart Pak Adapter
Yes, this is a Smart thing to Pack! We have traveled all over and this is the smallest adapter and easiest to use. It converts the 220 circular holes to our 120 plugs. Great for computer, cell phone, camcorder or DVD player. THIS IS NOT A CONVERTER. Most laptops, cell phones and DVD players today are adapted or switchable to 220, so this is all you need. (Older models (VHS) might need a converter.)
