Another thing I think is worthy of mention is the thickness of the blade contacts on this adaptor as opposed to other ones I have. The Australian standard calls for thicker blades than the American and Chinese standards. It might seem like a small thing, but other adaptors I have seem like they use the same American blades and just angle them for Australian sockets. Which isn't the worst thing in the world I guess, but it does mean a loose fit in Australian sockets because the blades aren't as thick as they're supposed to be. They will fall out of the socket easily. I purchased several of these and the blades are obviously thicker, according to the Australian standard. It's just a little detail, but a definite indication that these adapters are actually constructed PROPERLY and according to standards.
