Prongs were not long enough to plug into European outlets.

Turned on fine, worked for about 3 minutes and then I heard a very loud pop and smelled burnt plastic...and its dead.

A very compact and lightweight converter to carry while travelling overseas. I have used it with my battery, cellphone and camcorder chargers. Also I have used it with my Shaver and toothbrush. I have owned it for two years and have used it on my trips to Europe and Asia. It has a thermal fuse which protects it from overheating. It is very reliable and has never failed on me.

I cannot deal with a bad hair day. Even while travelling I must carry my own hair dryer & hair straightner. This converter worked great for me while holidaying in Europe & Asia. As per instructions I used it on the High setting for both the Items. It also worked great with my husband's shaver & iPhone on the Low setting. We were impressed that such a lightweight converter, worked so well for all our gadgets. We highly recommend this converter for travellers.

I've been using this model of travel converter for over 5 years, traveling all over the world. I have only a few 110V US items that I carry with me, the most important to me is an RCR123a battery charger. It has yet to fail me. I use just an adapter (not a converter) for my laptops and other items that have power supplies capable of handling 100-240 Volts at 50 or 60 Hz.

I paid $25 for mine, so the shipping charge doesn't seem terribly out of line. I would like to get it for less, of course.

Having gone through part of the reviews here, I guess some users might have misunderstood the application of this converter.

If you want to use your electronic devices operated with a rechargeable battery (such as your iPhone, cell phone, ipod, ipad, laptop, digital camera) in another country where the household power supply is at 220/240V, you don't need to bother, because nearly all these electronic products are designed today to be completed with a battery charger suitable for a voltage range from 100V to 240V; in other words, people travel around with these electronic items, so these items should work properly at any level of voltage anywhere in the world. Whatever you have and wish to use in a foreign country, just carefully check the marking on the battery charger about the voltage rating ... if the voltage rating is printed or embossed as "100-240V", then don't worry, simply connect the power plug to a socket to charge the battery after you get to the destination.

I also brought with me two laptop's, a cell phone and an SRL digital camera from China (at 220/240V) and have been using them here in the U.S. (at 110V) for almost half a year ... everything is okay as perfectly as they worked in China, because the battery chargers can work at any voltage from 100V to 240V.

However, if you want to use an ELECTRICAL item operated under alternating current (like a hair dryer, steam iron), you will need such a converter, so that your electrical item for 110V can be used at foreign voltage 220/240V. If you don't, your electrical item will get burned from voltage break-down. Some products sold in the U.S.

I think , The guy that said Do you really need a converter like this, is right on track.

By even allowing this item to be listed and sold, in my opinion Amazon is letting us, the consumer down. It is clear to me Amazon`s master is the seller. And in my opinion this seller is marketing a product that can't possibly live up to the description. It would take magic.
This device weighs 1 pound!

Since the picture is poor and the supporting information is almost non-existent all you have is the description, plus your own intuition.
Recognize this devices has two parts one for the power coming in (220V at about 9 amps) and one for the power going out, 120 V at about 18 amps. This about the same power a circuit from a breaker in a modern house, 20A.

I am puzzled by the people that say they used a hair dryer with the convertor. I casually looked at the 5 star ratings, most don't indicate the amount of power used by the hair dryer, or most of the other devices.
We read theses reviews and, well, depending on how bad we want the device to be good, we will often disreguard the complainers and the bad reviews.
We neeed to pay closer attention.

I didn't see a positive review that gave specifics for power used. This would make a person think the 5 star reviews probably used, well a lot of the advertised power available, but who knows? But once you read Do you really need a converter like this, you can understand what the reviewers are using is small amounts of power.

Calling this thing an adapter confuses most people, it causes them to think of their cell phone charger or lap top charger. A big laptop charger is 200 watts. Most are smaller. 1800 watts is 9 times the power of a laptop charger!

I bought two of these just before leaving for Spain. The reviews said they could be used all over the world, and I guess that's true, but not without added hardware. The three drawbacks I found: 1) At least in Spain, the plugs are recessed. I had to borrow and eventually purchase adapters that these converters plug into so the plugs could reach the outlets. 2) These come with no instructions. They have two settings, high and low. I assumed (and had read in a review) that if you are using a high current item, put the setting on high. Problem is, nobody thought to change the setting to low for low current items. I burned out my Oral B toothbrush charger because I left it in high mode. After burning it out, I tested another low current charger, and it got hot as a firecracker soon after plugging it in with high mode selected. Seems like there should be an automatic switching mechanism, or at least clear instructions on what the ranges are so you can know when to switch. 3) I should have noticed before I purchased, but they have no ground plug. I had planned to take power strips and plug them into the converter so that more than one low current item could be charged (phones, iPods, etc). With no ground plug, my grounded power strips (and they are all grounded) could not be used. We got by, but it was aggravating.
