[Amazon Canada] Universal USB Travel Adapter with USB 3.0 Type A and USB-C 5.6A - $18.70

I was looking for a universal power adapter for my trip through Asia coming up. This was the absolute best I could find. It's not the fastest charger (2.4A for USB-A and 3A for USB-C) but great for it's price and well reviewed. Using the coupon code brings it down to $18.70, which is the all time low, even beating the lightning deal prices.

It comes with some extras:

What's in the Box:
• Epicka Universal Travel Adapter
• Zipper Nylon Travel Bag
• 2ft. Charging Cable for Apple and Android - this makes it a solid deal to me

I don't think you can go wrong here, if you're looking for a travel adapter. Seems reliable based on the reviews. Don't forget that you have to use the coupon code provided on the product page: 5WE6729D

Why do I always feel that these are paid or quid pro quo posts?

- Random product with few or tons of paid for reviews
- New RFD user or low post count
- Unknown manufacturer
- The post reads like a sales pitch
- Posts a code (often) not found on the product page

It looks a bit big. I've had some bad experiences with some of these travel adapters. They don't cling on to the outlet. I'm not sure if it's because of the weight of the adapter or not. I have thrown a couple away over the years.

Code is on product page, screenshot is included in OP. Can't speak to whether they are fake reviews, I usually can't tell, Fakespot gives it an 'A' though.

Careful. Even though it says it supports 140 countries, make sure that you check the information specific to the country you are going to.

OP joined RFD in 2010! Doubt very much he planned nine years ago to post this. In theory almost every Hot Deal can be questioned.

Intresting fact. I created a thread in Travel re Travel Adapters a few days ago and I linked this exact product and voila it shows up on Amazon on sale. Wonder how many people on RFD clicked my link and thus Amazon's AI said, let's put it on sale. Makes one say Hmmmmm.

Nice idea, but probably bulky. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for this

This has 4 USB ports as well so you could save the space that four device "bricks". As well this covers multi countries so if you travel to different places in the same trip, again you're saving.
You could easily put this into one of your shoes in your luggage.

Thanks OP, lost one in Kenya and had been meaning to buy a replacement. This one seems nicer and the USB C port is a plus.

The USB-C port looks like it's 3 amps, the regular USB-A ports are 2.4 Amps.

The quick charger blocks are at least 5 Amps.. so 3 amps isn't as fast as 'quick charge' but it'll be somewhat faster than the typical alternative USB block. You could probably plug in a quick charge block into this adapter though.

Edit: Oops, the USB-A ports are actually 2.4Amps but max 5.6 for all four.. so if you have everything plugged up it'll be a bit slower.

Edit: arrived today - nice build! The added usb to micro usb/lighting cable is nice! Thanks OP
