I ordered this adapter based on reviews I read on Amazon and we were not disappointed while traveling in Rome, Florence, and Venice, Italy. As described this universal grounded plug adapter accepts plugs from most countries including the US and Canada. The 'Type L' plug adapter is Grounded and fits in to Italian outlets. The 2nd receptacle on top of the plug accept two prong plug from the US, and another outlet on the back of the plug accepts 3 prong plugs from the US. Very useful because you can plug 2 devices into this adapter at one time. Many hotel rooms only had 1 awkwardly located outlet so being able to charge 2 devices using 1 adapter came in handy. (One hotel had a single outlet in the bathroom near the light fixture with no shelf nearby to place charging devices on). I also took a 2 pronged Italy adapter and an international surge protector/power strip that also allowed me to use one outlet to charge multiple devices. (See my other Amazon reviews).
I purchased several of these for a recent trip to Europe and Africa. All the adapters were from the same manufacturer and every one of them worked well every time I used it.
If you are looking for information on what kind of adapter you will need for your electronics or whatever else you might plug in, here it is very simply:
1) This is simply an adapter, much like the one you might use at home to convert a three prong plug into a two prong one for an older outlet. It DOES NOT convert the power supply in any way!
2) To determine if you can use this adapter for your computer, phone, whatever, look at the back of your device's charging plug or power supply and look for the label with all the small print electrical information on it. Somewhere on the label, near the top, you will see the word "INPUT" with some numbers following it, usually (hopefully) "100-240v." If it DOES have those numbers (100-240v, sometimes 100-250v) you can use this adapter almost...
I bought two different kinds of adapters for my trip to Italy...a 2-prong plug sold on Amazon whose description said it was specifically for Italy, and this plug. Perhaps older B&Bs or buildings in other parts of Italy use the 2-prong plugs, but the 2-prong plugs wouldn't fit the 3-prong receptacles that were in each of the four different hotels that we stayed at. This 3-prong adapter worked in every one of them. It fit snugly and I never had any issue with it. A very nice feature to this is the additional receptacle on the side. Unlike the duplex receptacles we're used to in the US, without exception there was only one receptacle per box in our hotels in Italy. I highly recommend this adapter. Make sure you count how many devices you may want to have plugged in at any given time to figure out how many of these adapters you want to have with you. I brought along a standard 6 foot household extension cord with a 3-receptacle end on it just in case (light weight, takes up very...
