PC Magazine travel tech writer Mr. Sascha Segan first discovered our first generation Universal Power Strips. He used it in Barcelona, Spain. He was so amazed by how USEFUL and how easily to use to meet his international travel needs. This is the first article he reviewed our products. We stored his article on our website. Please see the following link for details.

This is the second review Mr. Sascha Segan, he wrote a review about our second generation universal power strips – because he saw Microsoft was using our Wonpro power strip to power up their trade show booth again in Barcelona, Spain. This is the one we ship tons and tons to Iraq to support our Military. Please see the following link for details.

This is the third time Mr. Sascha Segan reviewed our products. We had a half an hour of long conversation. It was just happen to be before our big launch of our “Wonpro II Next Generation Revolution”, we overwhelmed him with well too much information, well too many great features and innovations. Since He hasn’t seen any of our new products yet, he decided to write in the following really “subtle” but in-depth statement:
“If you like electrical engineering, Europlugs detailed slide deck on this build process is surprisingly dramatic, and will give you some faith in its products”
The above comment was before he even saw our latest technology!
We are helping to rebuild Iraq & Afghanistan!!!
Iraq uses UK outlets, Afghanistan uses Germany/French Schuko outlets – which means our US high-tech equipments can’t get power from any of these non-US outlets in Iraq, nor in Afghanistan in effect in almost all foreign countries. Our patented Wonpro Universal Power Strips / Surge Protectors solve this critical cross-country power connectivity problem. We are very proud and very honored to have this opportunity to help our Military get connected & get power in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and in foreign countries all over the world!
US Military and Dept. of State are two of our many big customers. In fact, during the 10 years “Iraq Operation”, US Military was our BIGGEST customer.
We took over Iraq in 2 weeks. It was a GREAT military triumph. Then, we air lift all the expensive high-tech US equipment to Iraq. Guess what? We couldn’t power anything up.
When our military realized that Iraq used UK outlets, they bought some low quality counterfeit universal power strip and plug adapters to use in Iraq. They all overheat, melt, shorted out, caused many big fires (which burned lots of our very expensive equipment) , and killed one patriot G.I. who sacrifice everything to serve our great country. The most dramatic case was a super hero Green Beret got “electrocuted”, not died in fighting with our enemy. This enraged his mother. She filed a very serious lawsuit against DoD. The Senate had to hold a hearing to get to the bottom of what was going on in Iraq. After that, the Military always comes to www.europlugs.com to buy my brother’s highest quality Wonpro universal products (at the time, now our Wonpro II products is 10 times better, please take a look at our Wonpro II Info page). As of today, we know there are tons and tons of Wonpro products still being used in Iraq.
Iraq uses UK outlets, Afghanistan uses Germany/French Schuko outlets – which means our US high-tech equipment can’t get electricity from any of these non-US outlets in Iraq, nor in Afghanistan. In effect in almost all foreign countries. Our patented Wonpro Universal Power Strips and universal plug adapters helped to solved this very critical “Cross-Country Electricity Connection” problem. We are very PROUD and very HONORED to have this opportunity to help our Military “Get Connected, Get Power” and be all they can b in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and in foreign countries all over the world!
We were on FOX 10 TV News…
We are a small business working very hard to do our job. One day in September, 2008, Phoenix Fox 10 reporter Keith Yaskin came and gave us a surprise visit – They were doing a story about 27 US soldiers got electrocuted in Iraq, including a young special trained Green Beret, who went to Iraq to serve our country, but got electrocuted when taking a shower and died for nothing. This story was aired on 9/8/2008. We were not the center of the story. But, we were very proud that Wonpro products were used to provide the required safety for our men and women in uniform when they are sacrificing so much to do their job in Iraq.
Fox 10 posted this news report on their website in 2008. Recently, they have replaced it with other news report. Due to the special video format Fox 10 used, sorry that we were not able to download this video clip to post on our website for your viewing.

Cheap Counterfeit Adapters MELT in 6 Hours!
What is the biggest problem with those cheap Chinese counterfeit plug adapters? The PowerBright series are the best in the league and they melted in our lab after 6 hours of continuous use – Yes, they are a serious safety hazard! They melted because they are made of cheap plastic (not the fire resistant one we use)! They melted because their internal connector design is counterfeited from an obsolete model, which we have discarded long time ago (you’ll have to open up the plug adapters to see the difference inside)!
