Not for heaters, hairdryers, irons etc.
on 13 May 2015
Have used one of these on several trips with no problems. Though some of the moving parts don't have much plastic in them I don't see them breaking without excessive force. Prospective buyers should note that none of these multi capable adapters are designed to cope with high power earthed devices, the internal contacts are just not designed for that. At least the guy who connected a hairdryer only blew the internal fuse rather than starting a fire! The limitations are clearly stated in the instructions that came with mine. (As they are in the description by 7dayshop on Amazon) If you want something to hook up your battery chargers for cameras tablets or phones this is ideal. As the usb charger is internal unlike some other adapters that come with a separate module you can still connect something else to the socket at the same time. The only drawback for me is that the standard UK razor plug doesn't fit and on a recent trip to Brazil I didn't find any of those dedicated razor sockets outside big city hotels. It does work in the new standard Brazilian sockets though as the dimensions are like a standard euro 2 pin with an extra hole in the centre for the earth. Can't give five stars due to the razor problem and it doesn't cover those countries like India, S Africa etc that use the old GB 3 round pin plugs.
