Grounded 240v Adaptor
on December 10, 2013
I wrote the review below based on an adapter based on a picture sent to me by Amazon. However Amazon posted the review for a different adapter. I have and like both adapters but the adapter that is for sale where this review is posted will NOT fit into recessed 240v outlets.
This adapter is nice because it is a grounded adapter. It also is built to that it will fit inside of recessed outlets, and you find those on occasion in Europe. You should have adapters with you that only have 2 prongs also since a fair number of outlets in Europe are old and do not have the ground. Most of the 2 prong adapters I have seen will fit inside of recessed outlets.
Note that if you need to run 120 v equipment you will need a transformer. Fortunately many electronics will work with either 120bv or 240v equipment so there is less need for a transformer than one might think.
I usually carry a transformer and 4 or 5 adapters when I go to Europe.
