One thing I’ve learned from trips abroad: You can’t have too many plug adapters. You and the missus each need one for your side of the bed. The kids each need one. And don’t forget plugs for things like curling irons and the Chromecast you cleverly packed as well.
Thankfully, you don’t need to spend $20 or more per plug — not with this deal. For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Gimars Universal Travel Adapter is just $7.39 with promo code DZVYYO7P. Regular price: $14.79. The last time I wrote about a similar product, it was $4 more — and sold out very quickly. (By the way, the seller here is G-Official Store. If you see a different one listed, it’s probably because that seller’s inventory ran out — meaning the code will no longer work.)
The plug provides a pass-through AC outlet for Australia/Asia, the EU, the UK and the US. It also serves up four “smart” USB ports: three Type-A and one Type-C.
Take note, however, that while this is suitable for things like curling irons, it can’t be used for appliances that require more power, like electric kettles and hair dryers. Thankfully, there’s a spare fuse included just in case you blow the main one.
The adapter scored a 4.9-star average rating from over 100 buyers. As I’m seeing more and more these days, Fakespot indicates a large number of questionable reviews, while ReviewMeta says they’re mostly legit. My two cents, as always: Read the reviews for yourself, and remember that even if some are fake, it doesn’t mean the product isn’t good.
I think if you’re lucky enough to be traveling abroad, you should definitely bring a few of these along.
