4 Comments On "A Universal Travel Adapter and Voltage Converter for the Summer"

    If it does not allow you to turn off the voltage and frequency conversion, I think that it would be substantially inferior to the combination of one of Monster’s travel strips (which support all voltages and all frequencies) and similar products without a converter that allow the Monster strip to connect to the local power.

    Why? Converters are not free… and every device you plug into a converter that supports the local voltage and frequency wastes power and shortens the operating life of the converter.

    How many gadgets do people have these days that do NOT already support 220/240 volt power?. Few… and some of those that do not support 5V DC power, which is readily available at hotels and newer buildings throughout Europe… and others draw so much current (e.g., hair dryers) that it is a bad idea to plug them into a voltage converter regardless.

    If you have a medical device, it is a good idea to use a vendor-recommended solution, not an adapter of any sort. For my trip to England, my CPAP’s manufacturer gave me the international standard code for the combination of amperage and plug design for cords and cables plugged into my CPAP’s power brick. My device came with a US 110/120V power cord matching this code… so all I had to is order a 220/240V UK “mains cable” that matched the same code. I thought I would have to buy one in London, but I found a cord and cable manufacturer in North Carolina that would make cords (or cables) for all countries (to help amortize the shipping, I ordered some short cat6 Ethernet cables, which have turned out far better than those sold at Fry’s and Best Buy).

    I purchased the MOCREO® Universal World Wide All-in-one Safety Travel Charger based on reviews it came up as a good compact unit. However, I am still a little nervous. Have you ever used it?

      I haven’t used it yet since I haven’t left North America since Jack was born.

    I bought one for a trip to Europe this summer. Plugged it in and thought and airplane was taking off. Far from quiet.
