    comprehensive but....

    Comprehensive collection of adapters but missing THE essential component for iPod,iphone etc...the USB block. My phone etc is supplied with a compact uk plug which does not have the removable pin block so I now need to buy a 12v USB power adapter to use the traveller kit adding a further £19 to the cost :(

    Quality product and delivery

    Delighted to find it has all three round two pin adapters (thick, thin, thin angled) so no more forcing to into "wrong" socket in Europe or Brazil. I ordered late on a Friday with expected delivery the following Tuesday. In fact the package appeared next day. It work as expected. All impressive.

    Be sure before you buy

    We bought this adapter two weeks ago for a trip to Italy. We stayed in two very nice hotels. This adapter did not fit in any outlet, and we tried them everywhere. Not one. Fortunately we happened to have brought another generic adapter that did work. Please be very sure the adapter works in your locations, Italy not so well. Back home and happier.

    This kit is problematic

    First of all, there are seven different adapters in this box, including one for the UK, which doesn't make sense, given that it's sold in the UK. Anyway, I only need an adapter for North America, not the whole world. So now I have 6 adapters that are totally useless to me. I've had to pay £25 for the use of one adapter, which is a tiny piece of plastic with two bits of metal and weighs a couple of grams. Crazy. The second issue is that the adapter doesn't have a cord! It attaches to the power box, which then gets plugged directly into the socket, so the big power box goes straight into the socket and the total length of cord is now halved. Insane! Before buying this product, I phoned customer service and stated specifically three times that I needed a Power Adapter Extension Cable (the exact name used on the website), but with prongs for North America. She said what I needed is the multi-prong adapter kit. Well, actually, it turns out to not be what I need. So I've made a long journey into London and battled heaving throngs of people to buy something that isn't what I asked for, and now have to go all the way back into London to return it. I am not pleased. I am leaving the country in two days and I don't have time for this hassle! Please advise your customer service people better, offer the option of buying only one adapter as needed, and please attach a cord!!

    A very useful kit

    The kit contains seven adapters for practically all popular plug standards in the world and it's modularity is extremely useful.
    I'd only wish there was a 50 EUR/40 GBP set of those adapters together with a cable and a 10-12 W charger, so that this indeed would be a kit that you can do something with.

    Great for global travel

    Nice sturdy chargers but it's not obvious you need to buy the additional charger block (the bit that holds the USB) on top of this box. As the other reviewer said, a pouch to hold all the parts would be helpful, but I am overall very pleased with the set. The countries that the charger is to be used in, is marked in tiny writing on each of the Chargers so there's no doubt which one should be packed.

    I'd have also paid extra to have the UK folding pins plug included in this set, as would be more helpful for travel for me.

    Great Kit

    This is a well made kit with a good global selection of plugs, all made to high standards.

    Now without cable (as we all have them already anyway!).

    To make this kit even better I think they should include a car adapter (or at least make one seperate!) and also a carrying bag (a simple drawstring bag would be fine).

    This kit is now £25 instead of £35 but including the extras would have made it 5 stars!!!
