1.0 out of 5 stars Useless... Maybe just the one I received? 4 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Length: 1:32 Mins
Ordered this adaptor after buying a new IPad in the USA. Unfortunately this adaptor simply doesn't fit properly in the existing Ipad power connector. Anyone with an ipad knows the power connector is a slip in and click arrangement. The plug I received just slips in and out and basically doesn't fit properly.

I've tried it with 2 separate IPad cables with no joy.

Maybe its just the one I was sent so I have asked for a replacement - will see how that goes but as it stands, couldn't recommend it, its useless.

Place the US 2 pins down then slide it off, then slide on the UK adapter.
Works great,much more sensible option then buying a £25+ apple mains adapter

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product 29 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this to change the previous one i had which was a US one, i was a bit dubious at first about the quality of the material but then i thought i should give it a go and see, the plastic was of high quality no bits coming off from it!

Definitely worth the purchase! The item was delivered in a reasonable time frame!

Bought a couple of these for my brothers. One brother lives in US so his iPad 2, iPhone 4 and Airport Express all have US adapters which becomes a bind when he visits the UK. Second brother just got a US iPad 2...

These units work just fine. The connect straight to the Apple charger exactly as the original Apple plugs do.

However they are a little 'deeper' so your chargers stands out a little from the socket. The original Apple UK plug is ~17mm from front to back, these are more like 26mm.
Not really an issue and I personally think it may be an advantage for the Airport Express as some more room for cables is not a bad thing (in fact I swapped out one of my Apple originals for one of these for my Airport Express).

Overall.. does exactly what it says on the tin, just be aware that it is a little bulkier.

I bought my iPad in the US (seriously, what is up with everything being so expensive in the UK!) which came with the standard iPad charger with US-style 2-pin plug.
The good thing is, the charger is actually composed of two parts - the actual charger and an interchangeable country-specific adapter.

The adapter being sold here is *only* the second part - you will need to have an iPad charger to use it with so if you're looking for an iPad charger this isn't it. But if you're like me and already have an iPad charger from another country, this will help you use it in the UK.

You guide the adapter into the charger using the metal pin on the charger and it slides into place. Some people have reported that it did not fit very well, personally I don't have that problem so it seems more a manufacturing issue with some units.

Seems to work very well, and does what it says on the tin - charges iPads, that is.

The only "issue" I have is that the ridiculously bulky 3-pin UK standard makes your charger twice as big and feels embarrassing when put next to the sleek, foldable 2-pin US standard that's flush with the charger...but this is really an issue with the plug standards used in different countries (which no amount of griping is going to change, I suppose :) so I wholeheartedly give this a 5-star!

5.0 out of 5 stars great product 28 Jun. 2013
By Judy
Verified Purchase
This is a really simple and easy product to convert US plug to UK for iPads etc. When I opened it I was completely baffled but once I read a few reviews that explained how to use it - brilliant. There should be some instructions with it in the pack, it just comes on its own and it isn't clear how to use it. But all you do is put the US pins in, then slide off the piece with the pins in and slide on the corresponding section of the adapter. So simple!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Opolo Tech selling a junk one 10 July 2012
By Paul
Verified Purchase
I bought the 2012 iPad in the USA, and so was looking for a UK plug adapter. Unfortunately this one from Opolo Tech is no good.

Pros: Slides securely onto the official iPad charger.
Cons: Is limited to about 900mA current, making it useless for charging my iPad.

When used with two different official iPad chargers, the iPad shows "Not Charging". After testing it with an Android tablet and the Battery Monitor Widget by 3C, it's reporting that current draw is limited to about 900mA.

Bought my ipad in USA and worried I would have to spend a fortune at the apple store on getting a plug for using in England. Didn't need to worry this three pin plug adapter was perfect, very secure and I am delighted.

I have only used this a couple of times but it is far better then the long, bulky cable that is provided with Apple devices as this takes up far less room when transporting.
