Rated 1 out of 5 by from falls out The metal contacts fit fine. The problem with this one is that the plastic part is rectangular shaped and small so that when you plug in something a little bit heavy, like most a.c. chargers, the weight of the attachment pulls the plug out of the socket. A better shape would be something cylindrical or something with at least more substantial cross section. This was an issue for us in hotels in Paris and also in Barcelona. There are better choices available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh. I would not recommend this product. The connection is too loose, whatever you plug into it will fall right back out. I recently bought this for a trip through Italy, France & Switzerland. It fit into all of the outlets that I encountered. However, the loose connection caused it to come unplugged too easily. the fact that it's colored black also makes it very easy to lose and hard to find again. Five days into my trip, somewhere between hotels, it fell off the prongs of my phone charger and disappeared; never to be seen again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought several - all of them bad. I'm a photographer and depend on being able to charge batteries for a couple of cameras, phone, etc. while traveling. I bought these as backup for my other converters during a recent trip Spain. As others have noted, they're poorly designed with a ridiculously loose grip, meaning that the connection breaks as gravity pulls the connecting plug down. I kept having to jury rig support for the a chargers (stack of books underneath, etc.) when I was forced to rely on one of these converters. Bad bad product, unworthy of REI support.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed bad product I bought this to charge my phone and laptop while in Israel. Unfortunately, the connection on this adapter is very loose, making it unusable in wall outlets (the weight of the cord plugged into it skews the connection and disconnects the charge). This *might* be usable if you know for sure you will be using outlets on the floor where you don't have to contend with gravity, but overall this is a bad product. Do not purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and useful I took this on a trip to Rwanda and was easily able to charge my IPod with no converter needed. Worked great and was light on my person/in my baggage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar service: Italy, Israel, India Minimal cost with maximum durability. Simple to use and to stow. Light weight literally and straightforward to use. Don't bother with more expensive gizmos. This is the one if u can find it. Both REIs were out of them but regnesdorf store associate went into storeroom and found them for me. Couldn't find the two I already owned. That's how easily packed and inconspicuous they r. Now I have 4!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap, does the trick - can’t hurt to have a spare I bought this and read all of the reviews before doing exactly what everyone else warned against - leaving it plugged in and walking away. Overall, value for money is definitely there because it’s so cheap. I only planned to use it to charge my iPhone but definitely would have had problems using it with a plug that was larger or heavier. I would suggest using this as a spare/back up, or taking it places you don’t want to risk losing your better adapter. I always carry an emergency kit and leave larger items in my hostel, this was part of that. It may not be worth getting one if you plan to use it for everything, especially if it is expensive/difficult to easily replace your adaptor where you are going. You may be better to invest in something that is more suitable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utterly Worthless I regret buying this every time I look at it. It is worthless in South Korea. It is so loose that I have to spend 10 minutes fiddling with it to get it to work and then the slightest tremor will disconnect the power. I bought two, so I'm pretty sure it's not just a defective item. Apparently this works in other countries, but do NOT purchase if intending to use in South Korea.

Questions & Answers

I know in the description that this is supposed to work in "most parts of Europe," but I am just wondering if that "most" encompasses London?

Asked by: Tiva
This adapter will not work in Great Britain. Great Britain uses a three prong plug (adapter type G). The adapter below will work. http://www.rei.com/product/775153/rei-e105-adapter-plug-great-britain-ireland-africa-hong-kong-singapore

Will this work to charge a phone in Israel?

Asked by: Fleurmama
This adapter will work in Israel. Israel uses both H and C adapters. You might consider the REI Co-op USB Multination Travel Adapter Plug instead as it covers both H and C outlets. https://www.rei.com/product/837263/rei-co-op-usb-multination-travel-adapter-plug

Will this work in Greece?

Asked by: TDorham
Yes it will. Greece uses 230 volt, so you will need a converter. This would work well and it does include the E106 (type C): http://www.rei.com/product/775149/rei-dual-converter-kit

Hello, I will be traveling to India, and was wondering if I can use this with any USB cable to charge my Samsung Android phone? Will there be a problem with volt differences? Thank you

Asked by: Bluegren
If one end of your charging cable fits into this adapter, then you can plug it into an outlet in India to charge your phone. We recommend using this plug with an electrical converter for best results.

Will this work in Chile?

Asked by: Traveling Man
Chile uses Plug Types C and L; this plug will likely get you by just fine in Chile. If you’re staying in a hotel or other residence, you may wish to contact them to verify which plug type they use in their facility.

Will this plug work in Spain? thanks

Asked by: grill girl 71
Yes, it will work in Spain. Spain uses 220 volts, so a converter will be needed to convert their 220 volts to US 110 volts.
