Heat added to make up for the thief oO

same thing in bandm cheaper

5 Amp fuse - that will be marginal for use with a hair dryer (and anything greater than 1,000 Watts). Also, the fuses used in these travel adapters are dimensionally smaller than the type used in British plugs, so difficult to source when they blow (Maplin will have them though).

IMO, you're better off buying the (unfused) pack of two travel converters you get a for a pound in Poundland. Obviously you'd have to take your USB charger too.

Looks identical to the SKROSS charger on Amazon, If you're not near a B&M.



It is, packaging says 'Made exclusively(!) for Fujifilm by SKROSS'

Had one permanently in my laptop bag for years. Work anywhere in the world, pretty much and are also useful if you have overseas colleagues visit who've forgotten their adaptors as it works both ways round.

Not that many USB hair driers on the market though... oO

Quite bulky when all you get is 1 500ma usb port. I think some posters are confused and also think that this has a mains plug adaptor so that you can convert any UK plug. Surprisingly it seems to have missed a trick by only doing USB

Exactly. No use for modern phones etc unless you have hours/overnight to charge them. A pretty poor product. I'd recommend you use your existing charger with an adaptor, and consider whether you really do visit the obscure countries this thing supports.

Don't use these with Class 1 (i.e. earthed) appliances of you can't connect to an earth with the selected plug pins. In this case use only Class 2 appliances (double-square symbol on rating info.)

Oh right... this is a pretty useless product then.

Confusingly the description for the Amazon one implies it has a mains plug adapter with the following statement:

"Power rating at 220V - 1100W / 110V - 550W" - why would a 0.5 Amp USB charger draw 1100 Watts?

Yeah, it's also got a 5 amp fuse which is pretty overkill in this application. No chance of blowing it.

They have a removable head which can take a conventional socket converter.
