The basics done very well!,
This review is from: AmazonBasics Travel Adapter Kit in Black for iPod and iPhone 3G / 3GS / 4 (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a cracking little kit and I think there is some confusion regarding Amazon Basics. I view them as basic items done well, not 'value' items and continue to be impressed by their quality.
This kit is no exception. You get the usb cable, a mains plug and a car usb adaptore and then 4 clip on plug fronts depending on country. It covers all the major countires/continents and comes with a little bag to carry it all in. Though for casual users one country at a time is sufficient so you only need take the one for that country.
As mentioned build quality appears good and the basics paclkaging as always is sturdy and well thought out.
My only two minor foibles with the kit are firstly, the bag supplied feels a touch cheap, though in fairness does the job. Secondly, when using the uk pins on the mains charger it leaves the usb socket pointing up not down. Again my preference is down like the apple one, but similarly I suppose this way you could remove the usb cable easily wihtout removing the plug.
A number of review have commented on the price which, when you consider the connection options, is actually good value provided you are going to use them all. Good value but the apple one can be had for the same price with slightly more option.
Overall, good value but perhaps the price needs tweaking down slightly.
