I used this adaptor in South Africa and had no issues. It was super convenient to have several plugs.However, I also went to Botswana and it's important to note that his adaptor did not work in the areas I was in (Kasane, Chobe National Park). Luckily, I had a Zimbabwe adaptor and it worked in Botswana. This adaptor may work in other areas of the country though.
I gave the product a 4 star because it does fit into my converter. However I have not gone on my vacation at the time of this review. Therefore there has been no opportunity yet to use the adapter plug. I can revisit the review after I return and have utilized the plug.
The adapter worked fine for us. Having three outlets in a single piece was handy and meant less to carry. The bright white color also made it easy to spot in suitcases and when plugged in (helping to avoid the dreaded mistake of leaving behind). The compact size did mean that some bulky plugs could not be used in the top and bottom positions or in combination with other bulky plugs, which I think was an acceptable compromise.South Africa is apparently moving to a different plug type. I'm no sure how soon, however. But those looking for adapters for their travel should check before purchasing anything.
Perhaps the fault could be in the outlets themselves or the cords - but they did not always work as well as we hoped. But worked well enough most of the time - sturdy and did not break,
Works as claimed. Somewhere I heard that Botswana uses the same plug (maybe from this listing, maybe elsewhere); it does not but a standard US non-grounded plug fits in the Botswana socket (at 240 volts).
Standard: The GP3-10L features three sockets to connect up to three power cords to a single Type M outlet. The universal input socket will accept plug from almost any country including the 2-prong or 3-prong N. American plugs.
