      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Get one if you're going to the USA and don't already have an adapter.

      OK....I cannot get very excited about a Travel Adapter and so I'm not actually going to try! But, on I did need a travel adapter when I travelled to Hawaii early in the summer and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it so I jumped when I saw a Tourist UK to USA Travel Adapter on Amazon for the very inexpensive price of £1.34. I have since seen it advertised for as low are 60p and so, to be honest, if you just need a bog standard adapter, you really can't go wrong in opting for this.

      How do I describe this product?? Well, its simply a 2 pin plug that is compatible with the US electricity system and then on the back panel is a 3 point plug socket which is compatible with electrical products from the UK.

      The two pin plug fits into the US sockets perfectly and securely and isn't loose like some adapters I have used in the past. Similarly, the plugs on the UK electrical products also fits easily into the 3 pin socket on the back of the adapter without needing any wiggling about. And, most importantly, having this product means that I can use my GHD's which, quite frankly, is an absolute necessity!

      I do think the product does what it says on the tin. Its a decent travel adapter for the USA and Canada that comes at a fraction of the price I see similar products sold for at the airport. Its simple....if you're going to the USA and you don't already have an adapter, then you can't really go wrong buying this one.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Such a good item for a very good price, I think everyone should have one

        When I go on holiday I always used to forget that the plugs they have their ar edifferent to the ones we have here. This results in me havin to do without that certain thing for a week or two whether that is a razor or a mobile phone charger. When I seen this in the airport I had to purchase it because I knew it would make things so much easier when I go on holiday. I wouldn't have to do without things I use, since I purchased this it has went on holiday with me all the time.

        Price

        The price for this I thought was very good at under £1, I was actually expecting to pay around £3 for this so when I found out the actual price I was very pleased. You can obviously get different variations but they all do the same thing so I was very happy with this purchase.

        The Product

        The product itself is a simple 2 pin plug which will fit into sockets in America and other places. It has three holes at the front though so you can put your UK based plugs into the holes then plug it into the wall. It is all very simple to do but is such a brilliant item. You also don't need to put any force to get it in this plug and instead your 3 pin plug will just gently slide into the travel adapter.

        Overall

        Overall I do believe this product is a must for people who had been in the same situation as I was. By purchasing this product it really has made things so much easier for me. I put it in my carrying case and when I am at my destination I can now use my razor and other products without getting frustrated at not having the correct plug. If I left for holiday now without this I would be devastated as the product is so useful for me.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Cheap and well worth owning

        The best invention ever! I often worry when going on holiday about whether my straighteners and hair dryer will fit in the plugs or not. There is nothing worse than thinking they will work then traveling away on holiday and being disappointed when getting there and finding out they will not work.

        Why can't every country have the same plugs as us?

        For £4 why take the risk??? It is so cheap. Plus is it is small and can just stay in your suitcase all year round so you never need to worry about forgetting it. If you have more than one suitcase just buy a few more and put one in each that way you will never not have one.

        It is a small contraption that works in the USA and Canada and also in some other countries too. It has two pins which fit into the other countries plug sockets yet allows our three plugs to attach to it also so we can use our normal appliances such as phone chargers, hair dryers and shaver and so on. There is no difficult instructions to follow its so easy and simple to use!

        Buy one and don't get caught out when going abroad they are well worth investing in honestly!
