Good

My boyfriend was going to Italy so I bought this adaptor for him. Pros: well known company that you can count on, several adaptors and works in several countries across the globe Cons: confusing to set up- it is hard to understand where and how to snap the adaptors up. The packaging is durable but hard to open. The color selection is minimal-just comes in black but that is probably the only option most people would want. Pricy- about $17 but it?s worth it to know that your electronics are going to be able to work in a foreign country. Overall I?d say this is a good adaptor if you are just travelling once or twice, but possibly not as durable as some of the more expensive options that allow you to snap on different plugs and also more confusing.

The WORST Product I have bought in years!!

It might be one of my only reviews online because there has been no product as faulty and poor as this. I always thought Swissgear was a good brand, but now I changed my mind. I bought this at Hudson at Los Angeles Airport before my international trip. and I have been unhappy with it since. It is poorly designed and made. It also does not hold any of my plugs. So I have to wrap my cord around the adapter to hold my plug. I will never buy Swissgear products.

Sometimes "world" doesn't mean the whole world

This adapter will go in my suitcase for future travel. It replaces my old adapter, the well-rated Targus World Power Travel Adapter APK01, which I learned while traveling, did not include Australia.
