    This product is not for dummies. As far as I understood several commentators tried to plug in a refrigerator or microwave.

    This product is not for dummies. As far as I understood several commentators tried to plug in a refrigerator or microwave.
    If you don't know what for those small fuses are, please don't buy it - better save your money.

    In other words you can use it for small electronics... but try to avoid plugging of something that has to be heated (irons), cooled (friges) or simply needs a lot of energy.

    This is a great travel adapter designed for low voltage electronics. The people who bought this thing thinking it could handle curling irons are clueless. Great idea but the circuit board is cheaply constructed. I only had to drop it once to cause one of the relays for the USB to pop off the circuit board. Back to the drawing board.

    Comments about Global Adapter with 2 USB Ports:

    Dual USB ports seemed perfect for iphone/ipad charging overseas but 2 days in US before leaving and we found you can't unlock your iphone when it's charging on this adapter. Touchscreen goes crazy. Does same with 2 iphone 4S consistently. Will return it and try another before calling it junk.

    Comments about Global Adapter with 2 USB Ports:

    I was initially very impressed by the simple and extensible design of this unit--all of the major bases were covered in a small package, US, AU, EU, UK, Asia. There is even a spare fuse included in the unit! This died on my second trip using it, however. Never mind the illusion of maintainability provided by the spare fuse.

    The first trip was to the UK, and lasted 8 days of it being plugged in 24/7. It would only charge my laptop in the evenings.

    Second trip was more extensive--3 weeks in India followed by 4 days in Germany. Very similar usage pattern, except it was almost charging my laptop and other devices (since I was on vacation, and had no need to use them outside my hotel).

    The unit burned out 3 days into my Germany trip. To be fair, this is my second power adapter, and the first one burned out within a week and change.

    They really need to increase the reliability of this unit. It's unacceptable that such a pricy product should be replaced only after a month of usage.

    For the money, I'd do some research and find a unit that's been related as being much more reliable.

    Comments about Global Adapter with 2 USB Ports:

    Decent for a plug adapter, but major gripe here was the underpowered/buggy nature of the USB ports. The manual does not indicate voltage or amps, but I am guessing it supplies around 200ma - slow slow SLOW! Fine for charging a phone that is powered off...and not needing to be used for anything else. Should be juiced up to churn out 2A per port. Interacting with a device while its being powered by the USB is also futile - it actually fouls the use of touch screens (tested on multiple devices).

    If you need a power adapter and are fine with charging your devices overnight (off and not being used), then go for it. Hindsight would have me purchase cheap plug adapters and use the stock USB power adapters that churn out at least 1 amp. If I didnt toss the box for space - I would return this in a NY Minute.

            I live abroad throughout the year and sometimes in different regions of the world. Often, I bring multiple adapters with me to handle various products and needs. That was until I found this product! It works so well! Being able to charge two USB items at once (ie tablet and cell phone) and still use a flat iron way exceeded my expectations. The additional plus is to look at the lights on the adapter to identify when the product is fully charged! I love this product so much that when I come to the states and need to quickly charge a couple of items I use this adapter. And, hey, it helps when I'm getting ready to go out for a night on the town too!

                Comments about Global Adapter with 2 USB Ports:

                Quite a slick little package of a multi-country AC adapter with 2 USB charging ports that light up and change color when in-use. I didn't really expect it to charge my iPad2 but it does! At least on 220V. I have not tested 110v yet.

                It is fuse protected so it is also a cheap spike protector.

                Really only one quibble. The USB ports are so electrically noisy, that my iPhone 3GS freaked out if I tried to use it while it was being charged. The screen would jump around like it was trying to avoid your finger. You'd have to see it to believe it. I also have a USB chargeable portable speaker (SoundMatters). The adapter is so noisy you can not use to charge the speaker and listen to it at the same time. So charge it with my PC which isolates it from the adapter.

                Worth them money, with those caveats, especially if you have an Ipad since you could leave the adapter for it at home or be covered if you lost it.

                    If you understand this is an adapter and NOT a converter and use it with smaller products that have a charger that works with either 110 or 220 i.e., IPhone, laptop, Kindle, IPod, etc., this is a great product. I've used it from Africa to Eastern Europe and it's very easy to use. I never go abroad without it. Only downside is trying to charge through the USB connection....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I just do it the old fashioned way...plug the cord from the charger into this adapter and plug the adapter into the wall.
