Hi All,

 

Can anybody recommend me a NZ to many power socket adapters that aren't too bulky please?

 

Thanks.

"many" as in multiple outlets of the same type?  or "many" as in a variety of different types of outlets?

Do you mean something like this? https://lewisnclark.com/universal-4-in-1-adapter-plug/

 

We have one of these and works okay, though it can be a bit fiddly.

Yes, something like that, but preferably less fiddly. :)

how do you expect them to fit 4 countries adaptors into something much smaller or less fiddly?

Hence why I was asking here to see if there was any godsend product. :-)

 

Otherwise, might just have to revert to buying a simple adapter per country socket.

Some of the cheap ones are death traps. I've seen one that looks a lot like like the first one linked that had all pins live when plugged in. It was even possible to have more than one set of pins extended when plugged in.

ETA: Anything purchased in NZ from somewhere semi reasonable should be fine

Thanks all. Does this one take up two spots either side on a normal powerboard strip?

Hang on, I don't think this one's a three pin one.

We use one of these when travelling overseas. I like that it has two sockets although we usually take a 4-way power board too for the camera/camcorder chargers.
