I ordered two of these for our holiday in South Africa. They arrived just in time, taking well over a month to come. On getting to South Africa I discovered that the adapters do not fit the South African sockets. These ones are too small. Fortunately most of the places we stayed at provided UK friendly adapters and we managed to get by and keep things charged up. Judging by the reviews most people get correct adapters but some get the wrong ones as we did. The ones we got were completely useless. They measure 1.8 cm from live pin to neutral pin, (pin centre to pin centre) which is not widely spaced enough to go in a South African socket. It would be prudent to check before you go if you have bought these! South African sockets are 2.54 cm between the centre lines of their live and neutral pins.
