This was advertised as a multipurpose travel adaptor but it's somewhat misleading: 1) the mail plug point has three pins, which means it's useless in the US and Europe. It gets into Indian sockets, not elsewhere. 2) there is one point for a three pin plug and the other two for thin two pins. Again, useless for Indian gadgets.
I think it would be useful if your gadgets have European/ American thin pins, and you want to use them in India. If you're planning to use Indian gadgets abroad, this isn't a right buy.
Today after not even a month of use the plug short circuit with a blast. Amazon should stop selling these. It was a recommended product from Amazon. I highly recommend not to buy this to anyone. Please do not buy this. I am not sure how much it has harmed my appliances.
Its one of the best quality multi plug for tight fitting of most plugs. Only 2 Pin (round) euro plugs are not tight but they are thinner than Indian 2 pin (round) plugs hence need a 2 (round) pin to 2 (round) pin converter. Try to get your hand on MX-317 conversion plug to make all your Euro plugs tight fit. The front multi-socket is an all in one socket which can take Indian three pins as well as UK & US plug tops. The fit is very snug.
It does not have Surge Protection. The claim is misleading. Earlier there were two versions. One was with Surge Protection but this model (202042) does not have this feature. Latest catalog & price-list could be found on the Goldmedal website to check further.
Now the MRP of the product is Rs 110/- but except for Cloudtail & selected few, every seller is selling it for more than MRP. Try to get it from Cloudtail. Locally it sells for Rs. ~90/-
This is a highly recommended product based on quality & function. Its better than those unknown brands which make shabby products. Just don't overload it more than 5 Amps total connected load just to be safe.
The product is worth negative star, but giving one star in order to write this review.
Got this adapter for my Samsung Gear Smartwatch as the charger was not compatible to Indian plugs. Used the adapter for the first time and 'bang 💥'; there comes fire, smoke and noise from the adapter. The circuit breaker in my main switchboard tripped and entire home power was down at 11pm night. The smartwatch charger also survived bcoz of this. Lucky that we had circuit breaker installed at home, else scenario could've gone worse.
So, in short, PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT.
Pls see the product review on Amazon. There are many similar cases being reported. I should've read these before buying the product rather than learning the hard way 😭.
Thanks to Amazon for allowing the prompt return of the product. However requesting Amazon not to promote such non-ISI certified products as "Amazon's Choice"
My sole purpose for buying this product was for our home iron which has a UK based plug i.e. Type G. Been using this product for close to a month & for the price, must say it's excellent. Built quality is sturdy & well furnished. LED indicator at the front is a neat feature which helps in understanding that the product is working.
It served my purpose really well, extremely satisfied with the purchase.
P. S: My usage of this product is solely singular in nature. I don't do multiple plugging with this adaptor
Does the work as intended. All plugs fit snugly. My LED TV was getting restarted almost every time whenever switching fan on in same room. But now problem is resolved. The angles given at top and bottom is designed nicely. Great for the given price.
PS: This is an adapter working as spike protector. If your sole purpose is spike protection go for more robust protection for safety of your equipment.
Great product but only disadvantage is taht if we are using the 3 pin plug, then we cannot use the bottom 2 pins. The design is such that it just won't fit. So at one time, you can use only the top 2 pins and the middle 3 pins or the 2 pins at top and bottom
