Oneadaptr FLIP Family: Brilliantly Compact World Travel USB Chargers

 

If you travel overseas, power strips and adapters are necessary. Since most of the devices we travel with anymore can be charged via USB cable, you can save a lot of room by packing a multi-port USB charger and a couple of standalone adapters. Oneadaptr FLIP makes that huge British 3-prong adapter slim and packable.

Oneadaptr, the maker of many of the excellent travel and home power accessories we’ve covered, has a crazy slim solution for frequent travelers who need access to British country plugs that won’t take up a lot of space in their bags and backpacks. Think about how huge most British plug adapters are … but they have to be because those plugs are so huge, right?

The Oneadaptr FLIP family consists of three slim USB chargers with a folding British plug on their ends; the addition of an ingenious slip-on adapter makes them also work in Europe, the USA, Australia, and in China.

Let’s take a look!

FLIP DUO WORLD

If you only have a couple of items that need charging, and you frequently travel all over, then you need the Flip Duo World. Tucked into this 3.1″ long by 1.9″ wide by 0.7″ thick ABS plastic charger is a compactly folded British plug with two dual USB chargers (Max 3.4A High Output) on the end.

Included in the package is a slip-on cover that adds European, US, and Australian charging ability. With the US/AU and Euro plugs installed, the whole device measures 5.2″ long by 2.1″ wide by 0.9″ thick (measured at the widest spots).

The Flip Duo World is both clever and compact!

The whole package takes up so little room …

But tucked into the end of the Duo is a full-size British plug! All you have to do is hit the blue button and the British plug is revealed, but when it’s not needed it stows away taking up hardly any room, and the pins tuck away so they won’t damage the other items you are carrying.

Specifications:

• AC Input Power: 100 ~ 240Vac
• AC Max. Output Power: AC 125V ~ 3A / AC 250V ~ 3A
• USB Input Power: 100 ~ 250 Vac
• USB Max. Output Power: 5 Vdc ~ 3.4 A

The Flip Duo World sells for $29.99.

 

FLIP QUAD WORLD

If two USB chargers aren’t enough for you, then you’ll be interested in the Flip Quad World; it has four USB chargers with a max 5.0A high output on the end of its 4.3″ by 1.9″ wide by 0.7″ thick ABS plastic body. A blue release button opens the charging end to reveal the folding British plug. When the British plug is collapsed, the metal pins are kept under cover, protecting other things you might have in your bag from scratches or other damage.

It’s really cool how this slim quad-USB charger can fold so flat — but this is what it looks like when the British plug is fully extended.

Specifications:

• AC Input Power: 100 ~ 240Vac
• AC Max. Output Power: AC 125V ~ 3A / AC 250V ~ 3A
• USB Input Power: 100 ~ 250 Vac
• USB Max. Output Power: 5 Vdc ~ 5.0 A

 

Like the Flip Dup World, the Flip Quad World includes the snap-on Flip World Add-on, which makes it work in with EU/AU and USA plugs.

The FLIP QUAD WORLD  sells for $44.99, and it will be available soon.

FLIP POWER WORLD

If you plan on carrying your slim British plug adapter with you everywhere that you go, then you might as well put it to work! Not only does this charger have two USB ports on its end, it also contains a built-in 2,000mAh powerbank.

Again, pressing the colored button on the side releases the large British plug …

It’s hard to believe that something so huge can be folded down so small.

Specifications:

AC Input Power: 100 ~ 240Vac
AC Max. Output Power: AC 125V ~ 3A / AC 250V ~ 3A
USB Input Power: 100 ~ 250 Vac
USB Max. Output Power: 5 Vdc ~ 3.4 A
Battery Compacity: 2000 mAH

Like the Like the Flip Duo World and the Flip Quad World, the Flip Power World comes with the snap-on Flip World Add-on, which makes it work in with EU/AU and USA plugs.

The Flip Power World sells for $49.99, and it will be available soon.

•••••

Each FLIP WORLD package includes the slip-on US and Australia charger with a European charger topper. I like that you can leave these at home if you are only going to the UK, but if you have several countries (or a non-UK country) on your itinerary, you can pack them and be ready to charge almost any device.

The Flip World Add-ons work with all of the Flip Family chargers; if you bought a Flip charger in the past, you can upgrade yours with the EU/AU/USA add-on for $9.99, but they are included with the Flip World Series.

The Oneadaptr FLIP Family is perfect for any traveler. I love that you can fold the huge British plug down into a compact package for portability, and the slide-on EU/AU/US Flip World Add-on is brilliant.

The Oneadaptr FLIP Family is available directly from the manufacturer.
