  • Sold out in Orange NSW if this helps anyways. They did have the travel tags for $4.99, but not really a bargain. Good find OP

    The old model seemed good going by comments, this newer model might have short lived usb ports. YMMV

    • +3

      Bought one of these ~4 years ago, USB ports failed shortly after first use. Is cheap though, probably worth a punt. Suggets just testing it out for a couple days before you take it overseas.

      • +1

        I had the exact same thing happen, all ports failed about 8-12 months after purchase

      • +1

        Mines around 4 years old also (older model), Never broke. Maybe I got lucky. New ones seem to be alot worse, I'd take the punt at that price

      • Had the same experience- was good for a trip or two, and the form factor is very convenient. But all ports blew on a later trip when it had a few things (ipad, phone, watch) plugged in. Very annoying. Didn’t bother with refund, but should have.

    Call Aldi customer service & advise product code, Aldi will tell you where & quantity

  • Emerald Hills in NSW had some yesterday. Didn’t post as was unsure of quality.

  • noob alert. i bought 2 of this years ago. but i don't know how to use it. Is it plug in the country's adaptor then you plug in the australian plugs?

    • Plug the power plug adaptor for the country you are visiting into the AC cable. The dual outlets (AC sockets) on the adaptor enable you to use AU plugged devices, saving you having to buy an individual travel adaptor for each device.

    • You also want to be sure what you are plugging in has compatible voltage. A lot of devices, you are likely to be carrying, would have the voltage spectrum but you want to be sure.

      • You might put it in layman's terms. Voltage spectrum aka dual voltage. Like the US voltage is 120V, while AU is 240V. Many portable device have dual voltage and doesn't matter where you are, you won't burn it. But buy a fridge and you can say good bye to it if it is 120V and you plug it in 240V. And not forgetting difference in frequency.

        Anyhow, who knows what voltage will be on Mars?

        • Frequency - 60Hz in the US, 50Hz pretty much everywhere else - is not really an issue anymore. It used to be a problem with things like electric clocks but they're long gone.

    Looks like what I bought a month ago - and returned. The plugs are Chinese format, meaning the cable on the plug is on the side of the two power pins so will cover the power switch is plugged into a power board. Australian cables have the cable on the earth pin side, away from the switch. Check before you buy if it matters to you.

  • I have one of these. Won't transform voltages i.e 110 to 230 but most modern switchmode power supplies for electronics like laptops phone chargers etc are often marked 100-240VAC so will be happy anyway.

  • Had the old one and the power adaptors stopped working after a couple of swaps. Would not recommend.

  • I use an Allocacoc power cube and a travel adapter. Same result, a bit more expensive but more reliable and compact. I don’t rate bauhn stuff, their power plugs and the like have never worked for more than a couple of weeks.

    A few for $14.99 at Albury ALDI. Didn’t post because there was no a-frame with puns like the Harvey Norman up the road…

    This is not suitable for Japan, unfortunately. I found this out after buying it.

    • i have first release works great but does not include Japan plug.

    • +1

      If you're still looking for an adaptor, I found they were cheapest at luggage stores, the sort that sell discounted suitcases. I recently saw a Japan-specific two-pin adaptor in my local Daiso store, for AU$5.99, if you have a Daiso store nearby. But you'll only be able to plug in things with a 2-pin AU plug, can't plug in a 3-pin AU plug.

  • I bought one of these a few months ago, no problems with USB ports or power after a few weeks each in North America and Malaysia.

  • +3

    USB's stopped working shortly after purchase. Don't buy.

      Did you return it for a refund?

      • +1

        Got a refund. I will help others save some time, so they don't have to go through the same process.

        • +1

          There you go, got a refund and the world is in balance again. BTW, how will you help others save some time? By saying do not buy? Are they all faulty? Just about any company will have some products that are DOA or die shortly after and even well known companies denying there's anything wrong with their product.

          We all know Aldi is not known for best quality, cheapest prices, but at the same time they have very easy return process. I'd rather deal with Aldi as I know I will get my money back than with some Chinese company waiting for months, then have to do chargeback or having a product that doesn't work as it should, and it is more expensive to send it back, than just leave it all, or in some cases where PayPal will side with a company and you lose a product and your money.
          If you are so short on time, don't go to Aldi and save your time, but at least 54 people disagree with your saving of time.

            @bargainparker: I saved time by not reading your post :)

          • @bargainparker: Still don't understand how deal negs work and why negging a product for poor quality is a contribution to the OzB community? Beats the sheep mentality of upvoting a 50c saving on a $100 product (just one past example) by a street imo.

            • @DisabledUser67242: You ask 100 people about their opinion and you get 101 answer.

              It's just people. I could, just because Samsung had washing machines that were catching fire as well mobile phone batteries exploding, neg all deals when Samsung brand something is posted here. MSY, Kogan, etc.

              Just because of 100 people 99 are going one way, doesn't mean it is the right way. All different. And just because there is the heading "problem with the product" in the voting guidelines which allows to neg, doesn't mean it is right. It needs rework.

              • @bargainparker: Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill. Make up your mind. In the comment above you're suggesting numbers/majority opinion isn't necessarily correct (quite right in many cases) but earlier

                27 positive votes at the moment, so…

                you were implying the opposite. Which is it?

                Bottom line is this. The bloke - correctly and reasonably - negged the deal to provide others a warning. Nothing against the deal poster, nobody got hurt, your knowledge of Ozbargain rules was hopefully improved.

    • Why not contact aldi for a refund

  • they were $15 at my local

  • I’ll stay away from bauhn electronic, had their powerboard+usb, played up and fried an amp

  • +1

    Don’t buy!! It will fail I’ve been through 2 of em

  • Bought this a year ago, USB ports failed while I was overseas. Returned it for a refund. Not worth the hassle.

  • any good adaptors on ebay?

  • Most hotels will just give you one if you ask.
    More modern hotels will just have USB power points

    • More and more we are using Air BnB.

  • Bought one years ago and have had no probs. Very useful for all the phone/laptop/tablet charging family needs while travelling. Used all through europe, UK, Thailand, Bali, Hawaii with no probs. Even used in a caravan in AU for USB and extra plugs. Sorry to here people have probs with newer version ;(

  • I also bought one and the USB's have stopped working.
    FYI, when it did and you plugged in 2+ USB's, it would share the load and take forever to charge your phones.

  • Anyone seen this one on sale https://www.elvesfactory.com/worldshop/EN/MOGICS/MogicsPower I got one and I have plugged many items to it on a cruise (US Outlet) and trips within AUS and it just works. A bit pricey so I'm looking to get a second one on the cheap. Did a quick search in OZB but no results (lazy monday search.

  • I bought three in December, and took them on an OS trip.
    All working fine, no USB troubles.
    A gotcha for me though, cruise ships wont let you take them onboard!

    • I think most cruise lines don't like powerboards because they may have surge protectors which clash with the ships power system.
