MICRO Is the Smallest Universal Travel Adapter in the World

One of the hardest things about traveling is finding some way of charging your gadgets. To stay connected around the world, you really need a universal travel adapter. MICRO is the smallest ever created, and it works in over 150 countries across the planet.

– Works in over 150 countries

As we all know, going on vacation is about impressing your Instagram followers [/sarcasm]. To keep the likes flowing, you need to stay online. That can be easier said than done when you’re confronted with an alien power socket.

Of course, travel adapters are not new technology. You can buy any number of adapters at the airport, each covering a single destination. They also take up a surprising amount of room in your suitcase.

In contrast, MICRO truly lives up to its name. The adapter measures just 2.3 inches long and 1.2 inches wide. It’s about the same size as a 9V battery. You could easily fit this adapter in your jeans pocket.

Despite its size, MICRO is packed with features. Release the top catch with your thumb, and the US two-pin connector springs out; this works in 54 countries. If you find yourself Down Under, you simply rotate the pins to fit Australian sockets. This second position also works in 29 other countries.

Heading for Europe? Flip the other catch to release the dual round pins, and stay powered through 125 countries. Finally, you can pull an extra pin out of the adapter to use UK-style sockets in 48 countries. That’s an adapter that covers more than 150 countries and fits in your laptop sleeve.

The durable design can survive regular trips overseas, while built-in surge protection keeps your gadgets safe. In addition, MICRO is made from eco-friendly materials, and you can easily replace the 6.3A fuse.

“With Micro, you get the functionality of a universal travel adapter built into a cool design that matches the awesomeness of the gadgets you travel with.” — MICRO on Kickstarter
