Wonder why it says "Not for use with extension cords". And is the advice about not plugging extension cords into one of the 3 receptacles of this adaptor or is it about not plugging this adaptor to the female end of an extension cord?

Not sure why they specify these :

Say, you're traveling to Europe/Asia where they use 220-240V, does it mean this is useless over there? I thought it's just simply a splitter/distributor to allow more devices to plug in?

Prices seems to fluctuate from $3.47 to $1.97 and now $1.47 So this is now the lowest price. Not much of a saving since it stays mainly in the $1.97 price range most of the time.

That note doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Europe and Asia use completely different plugs. I imagine this will work just fine if you have an adapter to convert.

This just a simple three way splitter. No adapter.

Likely meaning business travellers, I've been in hotel rooms with a severe lack of outlets.

I suspect that's what the warning against extension cords is all about. It's generally a bad practice to plug an extension cord into another extension cord (in olden times we called it an octopus) so stacking them together increases the chance of exceeding the safe current capacity.

edit: Disregard the last.... I misread your post thinking you wanted to stack two together instead of asking if they'd fit on a 2 socket outlet.

Business travellers don't need so many outlets. Try travelling with family and they all need to charge the tablets and phones. Older hotels don't have so many outlets.

It seems you already know Europe and Asia use different plugs. If you want to use this there, you would first need an appropriate adapter at the wall outlet.
They say it's convenient for travel because of its small form factor. Wouldn't you agree that if you needed a few extra outlets this would be more convenient to carry than a power bar?

I do both and in both scenarios I've needed my desktop (small form factor) power bar.

Even on business I need to plug in my laptop, phone, watch charger, and have a free outlet in case I need to charge something else (airbuds, etc).

And as someone else mentioned, people do travel in North America. Overseas you wouldn't bring this.

I have a short 3 bar extension that I bought from dollar store for travel. Means I can plug this into a travel adapter and then plug all my North America devices into that power bar, rather than requiring multiple travel adapters for each device.

As long as your not using it for toaster or coffee maker or air fryer power. Cell phone charger is totally fine

Even if it says indoor use…these are made (and were sold) with the Christmas lights. It’s molded plastic. They are great for plugging in larger transformers for lights.
