In my case (American using electronics in Europe) I didn't need two thirds of the parts of this adapter. And the one piece I did need seems to be able to accept several other plug styles than the American ones I had, but in being a "one size fits all" they did a poor job, and my plugs would consistently fall out of the adapter. I could usually make it stay in place, but it was a pain. Had I known, I would have bought a simple US to European adapter and been all set.
Two other things I learned as I sorted this out:
You would only need a voltage "converter" if you wanted to use other things -- appliances (notably: hair dryers, and in which case if they don't have one where you're staying, it's probably just as cheap to buy one!).
Bring a regular extension cord -- we had several digital cameras, phones, and a laptop with us, so I ended up being, eh hem, in charge of charging. Being able to plug in a couple or three things at once was handy.
I haven't tried my phone or computer with it though.
Side Note: This is an adapter only, not a converter. Anything you plug into it needs to be able to handle the power current of the country you're in.
Update: These adapters can be loose at times. They are also quite large. I ended up also getting some really small adapters for my trip to Australia, and I used those the most. Lenmar AC5 World Travel Adapter Plug Set.
I want to emphasize that this is an adapter, NOT CONVERTER! When traveling to Germany/ France, you can only use 110- 220v appliances. Most battery chargers, computer plugs, are 110-220v. It will say on the plug. If the plug does not specify, don't use it with a simple adapter. The adapter only changes the plug type. A converter changes the flow of electricity. Using a 110v device and simply putting an adapter on it and plugging the device into a 220v outlet will cause it to blow up. But if you need an adapter, this one was convenient and very user friendly.
The plugs nestle together nicely (the stock picture doesn't do it justice), although I'm a bit concerned about the long term quality given that it's plastic and I tend to have a lot of things jammed in my shoulder bag. It's easy to tell if you've left an adapter behind because you'd notice the stack wouldn't be complete.
I've used this successfully in Asia (Hong Kong, Taiwan and mainland China), as well as Australia. Yes, there is an adapter for Australia, you have to turn the prongs on the US adapter to fit the Oz electrical outlets, but it only takes 2 seconds.
