Traveling is a great hobby for many people but managing power adapters can be a hassle for even the most experienced travelers. MICRO is the world’s smallest universal travel adapter with surge protection. It’s compatible in over 150 countries across all seven continents. With MICRO users get the functionality of a universal travel adapter built into a design that matches the gadgets people commonly travel with.
The integrated casing enables users to cover any third pins safely to make sure no single one is hanging loose. The top and bottom release levers have two positions: locked and unlocked. To release a set of pins users slide the lever to the left (unlocked position). To lock a set of positions in place (either in stored or open position), users can slide the levers to the right.
“For the traveler who takes any trip overseas to nearly any country, Micro ensures they can easily connect to a power source and keep all their smartphones, laptops, tablets and other electronic gear charged while they’re at their destination,” said Micro Co-founder Sam Olawale. “Not only is Micro a one-adapter-fits-all travel buddy, it also means the days of carrying bulky, hard-to-pack travel adapters are gone. In that respect, Micro is truly a game-changer for international travelers.”
When users visit the United States, they can use the top lever to release the US pins and lock them into position. For Australia and over 29 other countries, the top lever can be used to release the US pins and twist them into position to match the Australian socket type. In Europe and over 125 other countries, the bottom lever can be used to release the European pins and lock them into position. For the UK and 47 other countries, there’s an additional modular pin, seamlessly built into the MICRO design which allows users to plug UK sockets without having to use dangerous options such as knives or pins. Users only have to remove the designated pin from its location and slide it into its designated slot.
Since surges are a major concern for all electronics owners, MICRO has a built-in 6.3A fuse which keeps devices safe wherever they might be.
MICRO has an input voltage range of 100V – 250V and has a maximum power of 100V-630V/250V-1575W. It has a T6.3A replaceable fuse, is not grounded, and does not convert voltage. It weighs 40g which is 2.5 times smaller than traditional adapters. So far the makers of MICRO have raised over $143,000 with an estimated shipping date of December 2017. Pricing for the device starts at about $30 which is 36% off the estimated retail price of $45.
