Yes, "all in one" adapters are terrible. I can't believe people still buy those. They don't fit properly into the outlets, and the differnet plugs are all spring loaded. Anybody who has dealt with spring loaded mechanisms knows how fragile they are, especially teeny tiny little ones which have to move at angles rather than just in and out. Floating parts indeed. Take it from me, don't touch an all in one adapter with a 10 foot pole. (Because it'll break.) Stick with the old K.I.S.S. principle for the sake of reliability.

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.

Hey, mates. Mike from Canberra here. Owner-skipper of a luxury crewed charter yacht. I keep a handful of these on hand for my guests (Ozzie sockets on the boat) and they keep disappearing! I keep ordering more because I have to have them, and you can't get good ones over here. Shipping them over here is expensive but it's worth it. I won't risk my boat or my crew. I've had too many close calls. I figured I owed you a review.
