I really enjoyed this product. It was very useful when my husband and I traveled to Europe. We were able to use our electronic devices especially our computer. 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.

Excellent Power Adapter

By John S.

from Titusville, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Targus Worldpower Adapter:

This power adapter is excellent, durable, compact and was manufactured to a very high standard of quality. It is highly functional and takes up very little space in my computer bag. I have used it several times already and found it work just about everywhere I have been with the only exception being South Africa. I would highly recommend it to all those engaged in global travel due to its high quality and exceptional functionality.
