Worldwide Travel Adapter – power to the people, wherever they are

Jet lag. It’s a pain in the neck. Your head’s in one time zone, your feet are in another and on top of that you’ve got to find the right power adapter, figure out what you can plug into the wall and avoiding dying of electricity poisoning.

Well with the Powerbright Worldwide Travel Adapter, travelling just got that little bit easier. Looking like a cross between an ordinary travel power adapter and a Keyport, but cheaper, the Worldwide Travel Adapter allows you to carry just one power adapter that can work in over 150 countries. To use it, just slide out the labelled prongs via the different buttons on the side and you’re ready to go.

But hang on, it’s not just a configurable power adapter, it’s got smarts! After you plug it into the power point, it tells you via an LED, what voltage is present and it’s got a built in surge guard to protect your delicates from problematic power. Just be careful though, it’s only got a 6 amp fuse in it so don’t go plugging in your hairdryer. Oh and it doesn’t convert voltage it only tells you which type is present so pack universal power supplies if you’ve got ’em.

All-in-one plug provides adapter for more than 150 countries. Easy to use with slide-out power plugs. Compact, self-contained unit eliminates tangle of adapters. Adapts power outlets for laptops, chargers and similar devices.
