MOCREO Universal World Wide All-in-one Safety Trav&hellip by MOCREO
5.0 out of 5 stars Global Gadget, 29 Aug 2014
There is no doubting the global application of this gadget - the MOCREO Multi-Nation Travel Adapter with USB Charger. It has a total of three ‘pop out’ connectors to fit socket outlets for UK, Europe and USA/Ausralasia - one at each end and one on the underside.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This patio table arrived very well packaged as flat-pack, and it was easily put together with screws/washers and allen key provided. It matches the Korfu Series garden furniture with light silvery grey polished square top frame (35 x 35 inches) and 4 legs (29 inches), and a dark grey (almost black) glass top equating to the fabric of folding chairs/recliners. It is clearly accurately made and the glass sits exactly on the frame on a total of 10 small cupped plastic buffer pieces - but I would have preferred to have a rebated frame for a smaller piece of glass to fit inside. The entire unit is large and heavy and for most people will present a storage problem over the winter months - mine… Read more
