Customer Questions & Answers

I used this on a trip to the UK and it worked well.
Jo Anne
The contacts in the US side were so loose that it would not hold the plug, kept falling out of the adaptor and never would make contact.

So your best bet is to buy one of those all-in-one smart adapters.

Size Name: US to UK adapter Verified Purchase
We just spent a week in London visiting family and stayed at a local hotel. When we were packing we discovered that we needed something quickly to put in our luggage so we could charge cameras, razors, etc. while there. We use Amazon Prime, and this was the best, cheapest option to come up. Some of the reviews made it seem that the product was defunct with slippage in the connection, etc. However, newer reviews gave me confidence that this might have been a batch problem in the past and was no longer an issue. We got ours the day before our flight, tucked it away and didn't think twice about it. It worked perfectly for us. The connection into the socket was solid, and we had no issues with the US side slipping or being lose. Everything connected perfectly. For a mere $5 it's a perfect option. Now, something to keep in mind is that we used this daily for a week, and only a week. I don't have extensive travel time, and haven't given it more than a weeks use. But I figure that's enough time to get a sense of what a $5 option can give for value. I'd recommend it for all travelers if you're in need of a quick, cheap option (given Amazon Prime). For those interested, I've included a picture of our setup in the hotel to get a sense of how it looks.

Size Name: US to UK adapter Verified Purchase
I bought 10 of these because I was moving to Europe. After using them (rather trying to use them), I've thrown them all out. They were simply too dangerous and too useless to keep around. As other reviewers note, they are not the adapters shown in the picture. As other reviewers also note, the plugs fall out easily (not from the UK side, but from the US side). To start, a non-grounded plug will not stay in under any circumstance. Because of the design of the plug (again, not shown), a non-grounded plug will fall right out. In fact, there's a spring mechanism on the contacts that actually works to push a non-grounded plug out. Grounded plugs work better, but the connection is still quite loose. I threw the first one out after a cord that was plugged into it was moved a bit and something inside of it must have shorted, causing it to throw a breaker. I threw the rest of them out when another one shorted and threw a breaker again. Stay away!

Size Name: US to UK adapter
I ordered this product because I needed a polarized UK plug adapter. I was charged 7.25 for shipping but the plugs only cost 1.85 to ship to me, which is a total ripoff. Even worse, when I attempted to plug anything into the adapters it fell right out! Nothing will stay plugged into them, so they aren't even usable. They are not the plugs pictured here, they are much cheaper and don't work. Don't bother buying these adapters.

Size Name: US to UK adapter Verified Purchase
After reading reviews about plugs falling out of the adapter, we decided to buy just one and see for ourselves. My wife is a flight attendant who travels to London multiple times a month. She used it on her last trip with no problems. The US plug stayed in the adapter and the adapter stayed in the UK receptacle. I have no idea if she was lucky or they have improved their product recently but we just ordered five more for friends and relatives attending our son's wedding in the UK this summer.

Product works as designed. Excellent for charging portable electronics (e.g., iPod, iPhone, iPad, Nook) that can use both 120V and 240V.

Size Name: US to UK adapter Verified Purchase
Not sure why there are so many negative reviews of this product. It works just fine, exactly as intended. However, after traveling europe for several weeks, I have found that there are 3 different plug types: The triangle (UK), the twin prongs (rest of europe), and the triple prongs (Italy only). So your best bet is to buy one of those all-in-one smart adapters.

Size Name: US to UK adapter Verified Purchase
I saw the reviews warning that this adapter doesn't hold the US plug very well, but more recent reviewers seemed to have positive experiences so I gave it a try. No dice. The adapter just doesn't hold the 2-prong plugs well. Unfortunately, it seems Amazon just doesn't stock quality adapters at this time.

Size Name: US to UK adapter Verified Purchase
Took this to Hong Kong for charging our electronics. We had an IPad charger, a laptop charger, and a couple USB chargers for our cell phones. Both sides - the rectangular 3 prong to the wall and the US plug side, had worked well. Nothing loose or not fitting.

For a few dollars and the small size this purchase is worth it.
