Note: the picture shows that it provides two US type electrical outlets, but there is only one. It is the polarized receptacle with grounding, so will accept any plug. Nice looking, compact, and otherwise an elegant looking product.It is 3-in-1 because there are 2 USB outlets and 1 electrical outlet so that part is true.
Used this constantly while in New Zealand and Australia.Worked well for me. Stayed in the power socket firmly. Liked that I could chargemy mobile as well.Nifty device. Wouldn't leave home without it again when venturing there.
I bought this product shortly before a trip to Australia, and it worked as advertised. I used it to charge camera batteries, a kindle, and a cell phone. It did not cause any abnormal heating, or any other issues.
I got what I paid for. It works as expected. The dual USB charging ports was quite convenient in addition to the USA style plug-in socket. I was able to power my laptop and charge two smart phones, all at the same time. And since my laptop also had a charging USB port, I was able to charge my camera too.Now, that I'm back in the States, the adapter is useless. It would be an added feature if the Australia/New Zealand fixed spades, weren't "fixed". If they were of the "swiveled" kind, then even when back in USA, I would still be able to use the adapter for its charging USB ports. The 'straight' earth ground would need to be universal (or be removable). Another thought would be, the power strips that I came across in New Zealand had recessed round receptacles, and this adapter, with its square shape could not fit into it.
I will be using it soon! It looks great. I will update this within the next eight weeks. D.M.
