Interface

Front:

USB:

With 3 ports of USB and a fast charging port, the travel adapter is quite suitable for multiple devices to charge at the same time. Most conventional travel adapters does not have USB ports where user needs to bring extra USB power brick to go with the travel adapter. But with Glamfields it is totally not necessary where it has a built-in USB and with an extra Type C USB for devices which support it.

Retractable Plugs:

EU Plug /Type C plugs (220V)

The very first or the deepest insert into the power adapter in the EU plug, it has two round pins Mainly Europe, South America & Asia

US Plug Type A&B (120V)

Second, on the retractable is the US Plug. Two flat pins that plugs into a socket in United States. Mainly USA, Canada, Mexico & Japan

AUS Plug Type I (230V)

Third on the adapter is the Type I plug for Australian socket where it has two flat pins slanted 45 degrees Mainly used in Australia, New Zealand, China & Argentina.

UK Plug Type G (240V)

Fourth on the retractable is the Type G plug that has the rectangular shape to the pin and comes with a third pin which works as earth (unearthed for the adapter)  in the socket. Mainly used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta, Malaysia & Singapore

Build Quality

The travel adapter comes with a matte black finish and high-quality heat resistant PC+ABS engineering plastics. It can withstand high-temperature heat when charging and will not deform due to the high heat that produces by electricity when charging.

The retractable need quite a small top push and it locks the plug in place solidly. Usually, when the plug is retracted, most of the plug is wobbly and may affect the user experience. But with the Glamfields travel adapter, the plug is retracted firmly and steadily, it also doesn’t wobble when plugging into the socket.

Verdict 

From the aspect of features, interface and build quality of the Glamfields Travel Adapter combined with the price of only $21.99 on Amazon, this travel adapter out-performed most of the travel adapter that is available on the market.
