Universal Travel Adapter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most useful travel adapter ever!! I cannot tell you how many adapters I've been through, and these are hands down way better than the rest. The spring-loaded prongs make them useable in cases where fixed-width prongs simply aren't effective. The fact that it packs so flat is also amazing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Go for the standard instead I ended up not being able to use this in the Middle East. Luckily the hotel provided a standard one. I'd go for that and also ask Container Store to stock the standard one found in hardware stores, etc. This one doesn't seem to cut it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked. I travelled to Italy and used the smaller unit for our charger. I was with a group and they came to see me to use the charger for their purpose. I was in use every day of the vacation. A great purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy this for travel to Britain or Ireland Lame converter. Sorry, but the 150 countries should include England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy to pack adapter We live abroad and bought several of these adapters to use in our travels. It is lightweight, the size is great and compact, and it is easy to use. The only issue we've had is the small tabs in the square yellow part shown in the photo have broken off a bit with use. We can still manage, but this is something to note about the product. Even with this small flaw, I give this item 5 stars as we use it constantly and more than our other adapters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly! I bought this for traveling to Ireland and it was a life saver! Both my mother and my aunt used it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best travel adapter Compact, multi-functional and I just love it! easy to use and I always take it with me while traveling abroad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well in Italy My daughter brought it to Italy on her school trip. Works! What more can I ask for? Inexpensive, compact, easy to store. The parts are now in a sandwich bag together with the instruction ready for traveling next time. I have not had a chance to try it in other country. But just this one trip has already made the purchase worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchse but one con Purchased for my recent trip to Rome, Paris and London. The adaptor worked perfectly in Rome and Paris but London was a different story. In London, we had to borrow an adaptor from the hotel. Overall, I don't regret the purchase but wish it worked in London.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Power Adapter We have used these on our last couple of trips to Europe and they have worked perfectly. Many of the plugs in Europe are now making it more difficult to use those all in one type adapters that operate like a swiss army knife depending on the country you are in. This style is PERFECT. We bring 3 with us, that way both cameras and a netbook can be charging overnight. I also recommend bringing these if you are traveling by cruise ship. Many cruise ships have 2 North America plugs and 2 European style plugs. If you pack these adapters with you (no matter where you are cruising to) you will double your electrical options while you are on the cruise ship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I bought this adapter before a trip to Italy, and it was a great buy. It worked with my digital camera charger, hair dryer and iron. The price was also a plus. It's a little investment because it has an additional attachment for other countries.

does it work in India?

Does this work in the UK?

Asked by: AG12
Yes, The two pieces slide together to form the UK 3 prong. The two prong round is the wider configuration by default, but a press on the yellow side button moves them closer together.

Are the rectangular pins suppose to turn 180 degrees? It seems that they would need to fit into UK outlets. Mine do not turn to this position.

how does it work with 3 pin plugs?

I don't see provision to plug in a 3 pin plug. Is this meant only for 2 pin plugs?
Asked by: anji
The two pieces slide together to make two different styles of three pin adaptors.
