Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in. We’ve talked about Fluent Forever (an app to learn languages), the Tropic travel shoe and the Voyage Travel Bag among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Today I wanted to talk a bit about Passport Pro, which bills itself as the Safest Global Travel Adapter
Passport Pro Global Travel Adapter features
The Passport Pro Global Travel Adapter is designed as the world’s safest travel adapter. Perhaps we need to add it to our list of the best travel adapters!
Here are a few pictures of the Passport Pro Global Travel Adapter and packing tools that help you get an idea for what it looks like and how it works.
In addition to all the appropriate plugs for the different outlets around the world, it comes with 4 USB charging stations (a 5th one in lieu of a plug if you prefer)

Here’s a video showing off why the Passport Pro Global Travel Adapter is the world’s safest travel adapter

Maybe I’m stupid but others already make very similar products from companies like Monster. I don’t think I’d back this as it just doesn’t seem all that special.
Yeh, I can’t justify paying $35 for a global adapter when I can get one for under $5. All I need is the adapter.
other than a few extra USB spots there is *NOTHING* about this product that doesn’t already exist in the marketplace, to be had for under $10 usually
