Compact Cube Universal Travel Adaptor - Black

The Compact Cube Universal Travel Adaptor from Monoprice ensures that you can plug any device into any power socket.

This is a blade adaptor in that it allows you to adapt the plug blades of any device to that of the local power wall socket. The face of the adaptor accommodates two- and three-bladed power plugs from the US, UK, EU, Australia, and China. The opposite end has four sets of plug blades corresponding to the four different accepted types (Australia and China use the same plug design). Simply push forward on one of the slides to extend the appropriate plug for the wall socket.

This adapter is not UL certified because UL will not certify devices with international power plugs. However, it is CE certified, which is the EU equivalent of a UL certificate. The adaptor is rated for 8 amps and can handle 830 watts of power (at 110 VAC) or 1750 watts (at 230 VAC).

This adaptor will work with the following plug/socket types:

  • NEMA 1-15 (US)
  • CEE 7/16 Europlug (EU)
  • BS 1363 (UK)
  • AS/NZS 3112 (Australia, New Zealand, China)

Note that this adaptor does not convert voltage levels. It simply adapts the plug blades of one type to that of another type.

Warning: Do not use with devices requiring a ground/earth connection. Unplug the adaptor when not in use.

Fits most but not all outlets

Pros: Covers most international plugs

Cons: Adaptor cube design too large to fit into recessed outlet designs in many countries.

Bought the adaptor for travel to South Korea. The correct plug adaptor is included but cant be used because outlets here (and in other countries that use a similar design) are recessed, meaning that you need a narrower adaptor to fit. The adaptor's cube design makes it too large to fit into the outlets. The adaptor should either have a longer plug or include an additional adaptor to fit into recessed outlets.

U.K. Pins Jammed

I purchased two of these for a trip to England. The U.K. pins jammed on the first use on one of the adaptors. The U.K. pins jammed after just a few uses on the second adaptor.

Efficient and Small

Pros: Small compact size
Works world wide

Cons: Sliding resistance could be a touch stronger

This worked well for me on a trip through England, Scotland, and France.
No issues and no blow outs. Did a great job helping me charge my battery pack/camera/iPhone/iPad.

Only issue was holding the plug sliders out when using it with some tight plugs in the UK. Stellar product though.

Pros: Simple, Robust, Good price.

Cons: Size, lack of USB port at the time (USB-version now available)

Took with us on recent trip to Sweden (220V)
All our portable electronics supported universal voltage (Nintendo DS being the only exception) so it was very simple & convenient.
