Did not work in China, worked in Europe
on June 11, 2013
I bought this adapter for my trip to China and Europe. In Shanghai, the adapter wouldn't plug into the socket. Chinese plugs have two metal strips, like the US one, but at an angle instead of parallel. The plugs on this adapter can be rotated to get into the right orientation, but still the socket (any socket I tried in China) wouldn't "accept" the adapter, despite considerable force applied. I am not sure if it is because the middle ground pin is missing from these adapters, and the sockets would not accept plugs without the ground pin.
In (mainland) Europe, the adapter worked fine.
