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.

Targus Power Adaptor

By Liz

Comments about Targus Worldpower Adapter:

I was initially looking for a much simpler adaptor but there were only two choices at the store where I made my purchase. One was an off brand adaptor and the other was the Targus Worldpower Adaptor. I am glad that I decided to purchase the Targus adaptor over the other choice because it was very easy to figure out which parts I needed without having to spend much time reading the instructions. The adaptor itself is not bulky thus making it easy for people who are always on the go and it can be used in many countries. This is the first adaptor that I own and I am very happy with my purchase.

Worked fine in Australia

Comments about Targus Worldpower Adapter:

A bit over-priced, but for the convenience of picking it up in-store prior to the trip, I went for it.
It has several different configurations for different regions, but for my last trip I only used the US->Australia combo (which requires 2 out of the 3 'parts' plugged together) and it worked fine. The US plugs for my devices weren't held-in too well, but after reading reviews on other adapters, this seems to be a common occurrence.
I also didn't have a problem with using a 3-to-1 US adapter into the travel adapter in order to power multiple devices at once.

Targus Adapter in 4 countries

Comments about Targus Worldpower Adapter:

We recently returned from a European vacation covering England, Belgium,Holland and Denmark. The Targus adapter worked perfectly for our needs, including an iPhone, electric toothbrush, digital camera battery charger and a GPS. It was convenient, compact and almost weightless. What more could one ask for?

I purchased one of these for a friend who was touring Europe. It worked well with no issues whatsoever. A lot better than cheap adapters from amazon.
