The ever-useful travel plug adaptor, an item no frequent traveller is ever without. Business Traveller tests out the latest offering from Skross
Designed in Switzerland, this neat little white USB adaptor is a must for any traveller. The build quality is sturdy and aesthetically pleasing, with four different plug connectors (suitable for Australia/China, US, UK and Europe) that slide out when holding down the unlock button, and a USB slot in the side.
The gadget allows you to use charge (but not synch) iPods, as well as phones, video players, PDAs, speakers and other USB devices in more than 150 countries. It may seem like more money than you would want to shell out on an adaptor but given that it has a two-year guarantee, if you are a frequent traveller the cost per use will make it worth it. So no more phoning down to hotel reception in a panic when you realise you have forgotten the right adaptor.
PROS Convenient, well designed four-type plug adaptor for USB charging
CONS A little pricey
