5 out of 5 eggsEuro to US adapter

Pros: This adapter presumably lets you connect an auto-switching 120/240v power supply that has a European connector with round blades to US AC wall plate with flat blades.

Cons: Hope that helps

5 out of 5 eggsFor those who don't know

Pros: Solid construction and doesn't feel like it's made of cheap materials. Prongs are sturdy and fits snug into outlet, same for devices plugged into the product.

Cons: No description as to what this actually is or what it does. Even using search engines to find a description offered no help.

Other Thoughts: One of these had come with a Western Digital external HDD (separate items). So I figured i would write a description so others would know what this things is and what to expect from it.
There's nothing really extraordinary about this device, from what i can tell, it's just a power socket extension that you can put on a power adapter to raise it up about 7/8ths of an inch (2.22cm), that way you still have room to plug a cord in to the left or right of it on a power strip, pending on the size of the power adapter and placement of sockets on your strip, your results may differ. Additionally the prongs on the product are Non-Polarized and will accommodate devices being plugged into it that are both Polarized and Non-Polarized along with a few other types being plugged into it such as T or O shaped prongs. I don't recommend doing this, but you can also plug a 3 prong cord/device into it although you will obviously not have a ground connection.
I hope this helps those who were scratching their heads at this like I was.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Does what it is supposed to do. This pretty much works for anything that has an automatically switching power supply.

Cons: Doesn't feel cheaply made and the prongs for the plug fit snugly and securely on both ends.
