This product would be the product you would need for travel outside the country. We love it because we travel alot. I recommend this product for anyone who does alot of travel outside the country. It is great.

I bought this product to use in Europe for 8 months. When I first bought it, I was very surprised how loosely US 3-prong plugs fit--there is no secure connection between the plug and this plug adapter. This plug adaptor worked fine, however, for about 4 months. Every once in a while, when I plugged in my laptop using the adapter, the plug would throw off sparks. After about 4 months, however, every time I so much as touched the plug, it would throw off a spark. Now, the plug has started to melt and it is extremely hard to find a good connection in order to charge my laptop.

Another problem: there are 2 types of outlets in Europe--large, round outlets with a secure seat and grounding clips (plug type "F") and the smaller, ungrounded europlug (plug type "C"). This adapter is a C-type plug, meaning it is ungrounded, and has no secure seat to ensure that the plug doesn't jiggle in the socket.

This product was recommended to me by Dell--I would only recommend it, however, for very short trips.

          Comments about Targus Worldpower Adapter:

          I needed a plug adapter for recent business trips to Europe. I was intrigued by this adapter that claimed to cover almost all countries globally. It certainly covered the few countries visited so far (Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands), but then these countries all use the same plug. The construction is very solid and the plugs themselves are sturdy solid metal. All the plug sections nest together sort of like a high tech Russian doll, and it appears that the clip mechanisms will hold up for a long time. The entire unit takes up less space than a rolled up pair of socks, so it will fit in a suitcase, briefcase, or backpack easily. My boss said I could expense report this and we would use it for the department, but I have decided to keep it for my own, I like it that much.

            Comments about Targus Worldpower Adapter:

            It worked well. I liked the idea that it stood out from the wall connection, so I was less likely to leave it in my room. The adapter has connections for all over the world, so I should be able to use where ever I travel. I like the fact that each one plugs into another, so you can keep them together. I wish I could have gotten it in white instead of brown, as my iPad is white. The price was comparable with other adapters that I checked out. It served my purpose, and I was very pleased with it.
            It fits together nicely.
