Toy Box: Transform your travel needs

This is no Decepticon. This transformer (think toys, not power) solves one of the great problems travellers face in the 21st century: plugging in your appliances.

How many of us have made it out into the wide blue yonder only to find that the local preference is for two round pins rather than three wedge-like fellows?

Or that the hotel in Florida not only hasn’t heard of New Zealand but hasn’t any kind of power adapter for foreign guests (true story) because, after all, why don’t they just use proper electricity like we do here?

The Go!con power adapter carries all the world’s plugs in one easy-to-use, compact unit. Off to Europe? No problem —just fold out the right arms and you’re away. UK? Australia? The US? Uzbekistan? All you have to do is make sure your laptop/projector/electric razor can cope with the different voltages and you’re away.

Sadly, this wee beastie has proven so popular the maker has run out. But order one anyway — $US28 — and wait your turn. Royal blue or frosty see-through, the choice is yours.
