Shipped on time.
Plastic storage box does not close all the way, making for iffy storage in my luggage.
You can probably find better for cheaper.
This product (7-Piece Converter Kit for Appliances 50-1800 Watts) is actually two different converters built into one package. At LOW setting, it uses a small AC transformer to convert 220V sinusoidal waveform into 110V sinusoidal waveform. This is the preferred approach which works well for any low-power electronic appliance. One obvious limitation is that the appliance's power consumption must be under 50W (most laptop computer's AC adapters are rated for 90W or higher, by the way). If you connect a higher-power appliance to this converter, the transformer's iron core will become saturated. This results in runaway input current, which may then cause smoke or even fire.
At HIGH (1800 Watt) setting, the converter simply uses an electronic switch to 'chop' the 220V sinusoidal input voltage into smaller segments, such that the average power delivered...
This adapter is great for world travelers because it has adapters for every region in the world and even includes a map of where that adapter should be used. It also includes the (clunky) converter to convert higher voltages in other countries to be used with our lower voltage appliances in the U.S. I used this converter/adapter for months while I was on an extended trip in London and Paris and all over Germany/Austria. It worked like a charm and never had any issues. A word of warning though, I wouldn't attempt to use the adapter without the converter, some of my friends bought less expensive adapters minus a converter and burned out their appliances, having to replace their items in the process.
