Just spent two weeks in Europe and worked great the whole time!
Lmk
This adapter does NOT have the larger prong input that US plugs have---both sides are small.
Susan Wilken
They are small enough to carry and cheap enough not to be bothered if left behind or lost.

This adapter will take your US plug, even the ones with one prong wider than the other, and convert it to a European plug.

One thing to note, this adapter is not a voltage converter; it will not convert European 220V to US 110V, unlike what one reviewer said.

Shouldn't be a problem at if your power supplies support a range of 100-240V like most mobile devices these days: laptops, mobile phones, PDAs, etc. Just read what's on the power supply or device you're taking to Europe.

I'm from the US and live in Europe. I buy a lot of dual-voltage products when I visit home, so I use a lot of adapter plugs. If you simply need a two prong adapter, you will be satisfied with this one. The quality is much better than others that I have purchased over the years. I just bought a couple of these to try. I'll be buying more in the future.

The adaptor worked great in my trip to Germany. Worked with plug that had one prong slightly larger than the other.

I used the adapter to recharge camera and cell phone batteries and it worked very well. Since most charges can handle both US and European power systems, no converter is needed - just the adapter.

This adapter does NOT have the larger prong input that US plugs have---both sides are small. Can't use it for anthing I own. Apparently I didn't understand what I was buying.

I ordered two of these because I needed an adapter that fit an American polarized plug. Despite what the description says, this is NOT polarized. I was very disappointed and had to return them, because they won't work for what I need.

The product allegedly works all over Continental Europe, with a long list of qualifying countries, including Austria, given in the description. But when I took this adapter plug to Europe, it did not fit the outlet designs at my hotels in Salzburg or Vienna. It also failed in Prague--I'll let that slide, however, since the Czech Republic wasn't specifically advertised. Worked like a charm in Venice, though!

I order a lot of goods on Amazon, and I understand that you get what you pay for, but this is laughingly the cheapest piece of crap I have ever bought, particularly given it's going to plug into 220 power outlet! The photo is misleading, this is not a molded adapter, the two pieces screw together and the female leads are so wimpy whatever you want to plug into it won't stay. I unscrewed mine to pinch the leads so they will hold the plug better, but I can't trust going to Europe with just this adapter. Junk. Junk. Junk.
