    European Travelers

    • Written by Nathan T from Hoboken

    For the reviewers in Italy and Switzerland you just need a little enginurity and it works great. This is because Italy (L) and CH(J) have minor variations on the normal europe plug (C) and even Poland and Germany have E and F variations, but as someone who has family in all those places, these plugs work fine every single time. If you happen to come across an L or a J that has a safety, push it in with a paperclip and the safety will open and since the middle one is ground you are ok. If you encounter an older (E F) - non europlug (C) the same is true, it always works, just means you have to be creative with the positioning.

    As for the hotel people in one review saying "this isnt swiss", well, not sure what to say, if that hotel has a normal J type this adapter fits perfectly. Unless your hotel has the very outdated type 14 socket, which I'd be slightly affraid of, and I doubt you encountered a type 15 or Type 23. I'm guessing you didnt bring the right one. I've been to Switzerland 6 times in the last 2 months, worked every single time.
