WILL NOT WORK WITH PHONE OR BATTERY CHARGERS!

While this adapter works for most items with a standard US/European plug, it won't work in all cases - this is because of the large circular protrusion on the front, which for most large electrical items is fine e.g. TV, etc.

Note that most of these items are only rated at 1 or 2 amps (equates to 240-480W Max), so they may blow fuses if you use more current E.g. if you plug in something like a washing machine, or in my case a Nintendo Wii that was bought in Germany. (Although the wii only uses about 65W in operation it draws a large surge when you turn it on, blowing the fuse)

Most likely though you'll be using it because, like me you'll have a friend visiting from Europe, or have bought some cheap consumer electronics in the US. Here lies the problem: your friend from Europe will want to charge his/her phone or digital camera battery. However, because a phone charger is a different shape it won't fit because of the large round protrusion at the front.

There are other items on amazon with a flush front for inserting a US/European plug. These are better, and you should be able to charge your electrical devices no matter what shape the plug is.
-------------------------
TIP: my favourite adapters for US/European to UK plugs are the shaver sockets you get in Tesco/Asda for 75p approx.

Not all shaver sockets (2 socket to 3 pin plug) will do as the pins on European 2 pin plugs are spaced further apart than a UK shaver plug, and US plugs are two flat vertical prongs.

The key to identifying shaver sockets that work with European and US plugs is that the holes in the socket are "D" shaped (not round) with the flat edge of the "D"s facing towards the centre.

A quick call to Amazon allowed us to obtain an adapter which converted an Australian plug to an english version. It was cheap and arrived quickly. All round excellent service.

During the last three years on several visits to Australia I have returned with several electrical items all with Australian plugs . The universal adapter means I can use all of them easily in this country. Most useful!

I bought an epilator whilst I was in Australia, so I needed an adaptor for UK use. This was exactly what I needed, it's good quality. It arrived well packaged and much earlier than I expected. Would definitely use this company again.

This plug is exactly as advertised and I have been using mine for years and still not had an issue. I also found it useful for charging shavers as it takes plugs made for bathroom sockets.

Not much else to say, very happy with it.

Having bought a real bargain camera in Auckland airport, got home to discover battery charger had NZ plug so this very reasonable converter, delivered on time, has solved my problem and the camera remains a bargain.
