The adapter Type M can be used in the following countries: SOUTH AFRICA, NAMIBIA (BOTSWANA, ZAMBIA use this Type M Plug and Type G standard. Lesotho, Mozambique and Swaziland use both Type D and Type M standard). (Larger/older electrical installations in India, England, Ireland still use this old BS546 standard). The input is a universal receptacle that accepts all types of connectors (Including: 2-Prong US "polarized", 3-Prong US grounded, European, UK, AUS and India plug standards. But not the large South African plug). The adapter does not change the Voltage. Please check the voltage standard for the travel destination and use a Voltage converter with the adapter if needed. (example, Europe use mainly 230 Volts). Many electrical devices such as AC/DC chargers for Laptops, cameras etc. allow a multi range Voltage (110-240 Volts) and eliminate the need of a Voltage converter. Sometimes electrical device have a switch for either 120 or 230 Volts (remember to set back!). Please check the specifications on your equipment. Powering a 120 Volts device with 230 Volts can destroy the equipment and cause fire.

Almost all contemporary equipment will still work when it encounters this condition, but not all, and not without risks. A quick internet search will explain. The risks include fire, damage to your equipment, and electrocution.
Whats more, if you use this adapter to connect a surge suppressor the surge suppressor will not be able to do its job. This can be easily verified: the "wiring fault" LED will light up. Power surges are common in Brazil, and it was important enough to me to protect against them that I brought good ones with me from the US. Too bad though: when they are used with these Ceptics adapters the surge suppressors won't work.
You can verify these adapters cause reversed polarity with a multimeter / fluke. Plug one of these adapters into a properly wired Brazilian type N outlet (one that is grounded and does not suffer from reversed polarity itself) and check which receptacle provides power and which provides neutral. They will be reversed!
All of this was caused by the improper placement of the ground pin. Move it to the other side of the imaginary line that connects the two other pins, and everything would be fine.
I liked this adapter until I realized its fatal flaw. Everyone who reviewed this adapter positively must not have noticed it yet. They had better hope they never will.
These products are unsafe and should be taken off the market!
-It has two USB options. I was able to charge both my friend and my phone as well as a battery pack at the same time. Since it was bulky, I was able to place it on top of the cube and not worry!
-There's a blue light to tell you when it's working.
-You extend the right plug in the right country, press the button down then move it.
-It is rather bulky...
I also really liked that this adapter could be used with non US, meaning a friend visiting the US could use this adapter for their electronics in the US.
Don’t confuse this as a converter, which changes voltage for higher wattage appliances that heat up, (It’s better to buy a travel curling iron, hair dryer, etc) but it works perfectly for computers, clocks, sound machines.

About the delivery, the courier partner had some issues but the seller made sure I receive the item. I appreciate the support provided. Some may argue that it costs80-100 rs in Delhi, it may but not everyone lives in Delhi and getting it at the comfort of your home is good enough. Time saved is money saved.
Some electrical shops sell similar product(Looks almost the same but with different colors, almost looks like faded white. and they are 50% cheaper.)
This is way too costly for a normal adapter even with all certifications etc. Especially the single adapter values at Rs.499? That is a joke. Even with the 3 pack, it comes to about 200 per piece, which is still costly. Local shops sell similar ones for about 110Rs and is excellent too. Hence the 4 stars.
I have all shorts of plugs which were difficult to fit or not fit at all on Indian socket.
Thanks to Type D sockets they are the perfect solution.
They seem light but are durable. Almost 2 years now and works totally fine.
