4.0 out of 5 stars Did exactly what we needed, with one minor 'issue', 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this very much last-minute primarily because the price seemed reasonable, and we could get it delivered next-day via Amazon Prime. It held-up to use in Europe really well. We had another power adapter with us (a much more expensive item from John Lewis) which failed within the first few days whereas this one never faltered.

It seems robust (although a little clunky to get the various different adapters out) and the plastic used in construction is a nice soft-touch quality. There is a very bright blue LED which is great for ensuring it's on, not so great if you want to use it in a room that you also intend to sleep in.

The one thing we did find (and really the only 'negative' thing I can say) is that the USB output wasn't quite all that we had hoped. We travelled with two iPhones (a 4S and a 5S) and two iPads (a 2 and a 4). Both iPhones charged very happily when plugged directly into the USB port, the iPads however did not. It is entirely our fault: the USB output on this adapter isn't rated highly enough to charge the tablets, but it was a little disappointing all the same. Plugging the iPads into the UK power plug adapter, and then plugging that into this adapter (ie: using the power socket rather than the USB one) meant that we could still charge them though so no big issue.

So: it's a sturdy, well-built adapter which worked well for us. The USB port is a nice addition but check your devices first: this may not be suitable for some of your more powerful USB devices (although using the UK plug adapter plugged into this to charge these devices works a treat). Happy to recommend!
