Used this on my trip to eastern europe and the converter was very helpful with certain electronics devices i brought with me that was made for the american standard 110volts , that would have otherwise burn out in their 220voltage . Not only the voltage is different but the size and shape and depth of the electrical outlets which doesnt fit the plug in part of devices that are normally made for 11"-240voltage but this kit has an extender plug in for that too!!! So far used in Hungary and Italy and proven to work very well, and safely. I couldnt afford to burn out my b.pump and sure didnt want to buy one there so this was a life saver. ( i had friends who brought back an electrical shaver to europe and used it w/o such converter and burnt it out, so check the back of your device for voltage range and if its made for only 110volts , the big transformer is a must! If its made 110-240volts , you are good with the plug in parts. Also very helpful that the type of plug ins are...
Used this in Argentina for two days and it burnt out. Used with my hair dryer (as other users said they could) and it died. Would not recommend. And now Amazon won't let me return it because it's past the 30 day mark.
I've had this exact same converter since 2002 and it has never failed me. I've used it for my lap top computer, hair dryer, curling iron, curling brush dryer, camera chargers and phone and Kindle chargers. The only problem being that it has only 1 plug. So I take a short extension cord and plug in a multiple plug strip (3 plus per strip) into it. I have to also take an adapter to convert the 2-prong (ungrounded) plug on this converter to a 3 prong so that I can plug in my lap top and charge it up. I don't keep it plugged in for long because I don't want to risk having it plugged into an ungrounded plug. The reason why I'm still giving it 5 stars is because I was searching for a new one with more (grounded) plug slots and could only find ones that recommended that I do not use this for my hair dryer or curling iron. That's the only reason why I have it! Everything else I need to charge while overseas can be used with just an adapter. So my decision is to get a good surge protector with...
