Best all-in-one option with USB-C and auto-resetting fuse
Among the popular all-in-one cube style adapters, this is as close to perfect as it gets. The biggest selling point over other all-in-one adapters is it uses an auto-resetting fuse. These are still fairly new, and means no annoying fuse to replace and fiddle with. Important since not every country's electrical grid is that reliable.
Otherwise, USB wise it offers USB-C which is increasingly popular and charges quickly (2.4 amps per, as fast as it gets) and can handle lots of devices (5 amps total vs. a more typical 3 amps).
Easy-to-use, compact design with cheery colors
If you just need something simple, we love these cute color coded adapters that stack neatly like legos from Flight 001. It also comes with a color coded map to match the right plug to a country.
The most compact option when space is a priority
These fold flatter than any other adapter today which is always nice when traveling. A few small downsides: Quality is ok at best, usage is not as straightforward, and the compact design means heavy items may fall out when plugged in.
Higher quality multi-piece set with grounding prongs
If you don't need to handle multiple country's plugs in a single trip, these are a good option. Compared to the all-in-one options, the separate adapters in this set are made to higher standards and will fit more snugly at the wall making it easier to plug heavier devices in.
