Why buy your travel adaptors from us?

All of our travel adaptors have been carefully selected following exhaustive tests, to ensure that they are entirely safe for use. They may not be the cheapest on-line, but we guarantee that they are the safest and most appropriate.

We began to sell travel adaptors after becoming concerned at the number of sub-standard unsafe adaptors being sold online, often with a number of seriously dangerous issues:

  • Non-shuttered sockets, enabling a child to insert a metal object into the live receptacle and receive an electric shock.
  • Cannot safely manage the maximum current (power draw) that may occur from the rating of the socket they are recommended to be used with. This may lead to dangerous over-heating.
  • Often do not connect the vital earth pin. Some appliances require an earth connection so that if a fault occurs and an external metal part becomes live, the earth wire safely conducts the electricity away, tripping the circuit breaker or blowing the fuse. If the earth is not connected, the metal will remain live, electrocuting anyone who touches it.
