PRODUCT INFORMATION IN DETAIL
Fommy Product Review:
An international traveler tired of lugging around three different adapters for your phone and other MicroUSB powered devices? This Travel Charger by RIM is a compact and easy to use solution.
This Micro Travel wall charger kit comes with three different adapters: the standard North American three prong style adapter, the UK three prong adapter and the two prong adapter for the rest of Europe. Unfortunately it has no support for Asia or Australia, likely due to even larger voltage changes in those countries. To change out the adapters you simply hold the button at the base of it and slide the adapter upwards, sliding a new adapter down when done.
The heads do snap on tightly, but are small enough where I can imagine people would lose them fairly easily when changing them out; especially since the device comes with no way to store them. If you do lose them, RIM does sell replacement adapters, so you wont have to replace the whole charger if you happen to lose just one.
Of course, being a micro-USB charger is handy to have around for more than just your BlackBerry; micro-USB is the standard now, and more devices will continue to use it, meaning this device can last you far beyond the days of your current BlackBerry device. This charger can be used in an ever growing array of phones, portable game systems, MP3 players, GPS system and a variety of other portable electronics. Additionally, the cable it comes with is very long, measuring in at about sixty inches, which is nice, but does have downsides (storage).
This is a great international adapter if you travel from America to Europe of vice-versa, but I wish it had support for even more countries.
