They worked perfectly throughout France.

It fit the socket but the iPhone power cord that I plugged into it was very loose and couldn't make a connection.

I recommend this round adapter for US 3-prong as well as 2-prong plugs.

I have a set of cheap non-grounded plug adapters, but needed a grounded one for a computer with a three-pronged plug. If you look at [...] you'll see that there are two types of grounded plugs in use in Europe, type E and type F. The prongs are the same size and shape, but the grounding is different. Type E is grounded via a bump in the outlet that inserts into a recessed part of the plug (we encountered this type in Belgium). Type F doesn't have the bump, but is grounded by means of metal clips on the sides of the outlets (we saw these in the Netherlands). This plug adapter works with BOTH types, so no need to fuss with multiple adapters for different parts of mainland Europe. (As others have noted, the UK uses completely different outlets.) Plus it is very snug-fitting and will not accidentally fall out due to the weight of whatever it is you have plugged into it.

I recommend this round adapter for US 3-prong as well as 2-prong plugs. Why? Because it has a nice snug fit on both sides. This makes it much more stable in the Euro/Schuko socket unlike the flat 2-prong ones that in my experience tend to have a loose connection or even fall out of the socket - esp. if yours is a heavy cable or if it has one of those AD/DC converters at the plug end pulling down on the adapter. Plus, this adapter has a nice lip which makes it easier to pull out of the socket. Good quality for the price. I paid mine $2.50/piece shipped -- make sure you don't overpay as there are many merchants selling at very different prices, some as high as $10/piece with shipping included.

Lastly, keep in mind, the schuko socket fits most European countries but not all - most notably UK, and Italy which have their own plugs.

They worked perfectly throughout France. Got two coupled with the Monster portable power strips and they were perfect for airports and hotels. They seemed very sold. Make sure you get these round type for France because ALL of the outlets seemed to be these round, recessed types so the generic square adapters will not work well. Remember to make sure your stuff will work at 220, because these don't convert voltage. Most electronics will.

Just as the title says. This adapter worked fine in Germany (Dachau) and in two places I stayed in western Austria (Russbach and Mutters), but in my hotels in Italy (Venice), and Switzerland (Lauterbrunnen and Zurich), the prongs were a little too fat to fit in the holes. Luckily I had another adapter along that fit. The other adapter I had fit all 4 countries.

In Germany and Austria, the hotel had the circular, recessed plug receptacle with the grounding contacts that this adapter seems to have been designed for, and in Italy and Switzerland, it was a flat wall-plate with a bunch of holes in it, so maybe the standard was slightly different.

Oh, and it's only one plug, not two. I was expecting two based on the picture. My fault for not reading carefully enough and making an incorrect assumption, but maybe others are as well, so I'm saving you the surprise.

With something so simple and cheap you sort of expect it to be "the wrong thing"; at least I did when we were planning our trip to Greece with friends.

These ended up being *perfect*. Charging iPad's, iPod's, using hair straighteners and blow dryers, powering laptops and radios... these worked for everything. I actually ended up buying two and sure enough one of the couples we went with needed one the whole trip so I just gave the extra one to them.

These apparently work through all of Europe; given that they worked no problem in all of Greece (Athens, Santorini, Delphi, Nafplio) I imagine you should be good to go with a couple of these anywhere in Europe as advertised.

Very difficult to line up the ground receptacle and insert the plug (in Prague). After it was inserted, I tried to remove it to re-insert it for a test but the top immediately came off to expose the metallic connections. This resulted in a hazardous situation trying to remove it by hand. Luckily I pack a multi-tool in my checked luggage and was able to remove it using the needle-nosed pliers. Looks like poor design and construction. Would give it zero stars if that option was available, especially for the potentially hazardous condition it created when it broke at the top of the device.

I bought 6 of these one year ago because of the high buyers rating.
3 or 4 of them broke apart the first time I used them and tried to take them out of the plug.
The glue job is done horribly.
Next I re-glued them and now they work just fine.

Still no excuse to the manufacturer - 1 star

To those who complain that it does not work in some countries:
- This standard is used in most European countries, however UK, Switzerland, Italy, Israel use own standard. You should purchase adapter specific for these countries if you plan to visit these countries, though you might find this plug in many hotels in these countries.
- Also you might meet old standard in former USSR countries, but they are going away from it and this adapter would probably do the job in most of the cases unless you are unlucky.
- Note, that there might be other European countries with specific standard which I may not be aware of.
