The best plug adapter - USB outlet combo in the pack!
on January 11, 2012
I've previously used available (Fuji, etc.) combo plug adapters - most require removing a cover allowing plug-ins, and replacing with a USB-cover, initially a single USB outlet and more recently with two - and some require carrying awkward, bulky adapters for different plug schemes you must attach to the adapter body. This package is lighter and more compact than any of the others out there, and does not require any fiddling or cover removal. You can plug it into a socket in the US, Australia, the UK, Europe etc. and immediately you have a plug adapter (even for US three prong grounded plugs) AND two handy USB 5 volt, 1 amp each, outlets for your cell phone, Kindle, iPad, etc.
(NOTE: this adapter is not for appliances that require a grounded outlet - it does accept grounded appliance plugs, but it is not grounded when you plug it in.)
If you travel as I do, with one carry-on and one "personal item", and one or two smart phones (a multiband dual SIM chip phone for travel), a camera, a reader or tablet, etc. and are looking for a portable, one-piece light and very handy multi-plug adapter with USB outlets, this is definitely the one! (You will also find it here on Amazon under the "Lifetrons" brand name - it appears to be the same item - as well as on British Airways duty free shopping.)
Oct 2013: I continue to take this on my travels and it continues to work as new. It appears to be solidly built, and I love having a "pass through" plug for local power plus two USB ports that can all be used simultaneously.
June 2014: Finally bought the bullet - some small item inside broke and the prongs are now not extending. I got about four years of use, not bad for approximately fifty cents a month.
