Got some from savers the other day can confirm this isn’t really a deal as you can get them in Poundland as well....
These aren't the best type to get as they don't have the third earthing pin - like those in the recent Aldi 3-pack deal.

Whilst older US mains sockets are only 2 prong (like these) the modern ones are now 3 pin. These are safer and hold the plugs much more securely. The Aldi ones were excellent quality if you can still find them.

Best not mention the B word when you're in the airport.


Ice cold. You can get decent one from around 40p each. Sometimes delivery fee applies though

Indeed. I was just pointing it out in case anyone clicked it wanting a USA one and didn't notice.

As you say there are loads of 2 prong sockets where the 3 pin plug won't work.
No point in buying multiple adapters. Just buy one and plug a UK multi-tap into it!
Always make sure your appliance can take 120v before plugging into these (vast majority of European electronics can but check just in case). A 7.5A rating is also pretty low, a hairdryer will probably draw more current than this can handle (especially at 120v) so be careful.
