Abstract:
The present invention relates to a travel plug adapter, which is also referred to here in short as an adapter. With the aid of such an adapter, mains plugs of a defined (domestic) standard can be plugged into the sockets that are present at the travel destination. In particular, this is a travel plug adapter (10) which has a housing, a plug holder (16) and at least one first plug (34) of a first standard and a second plug (36) of a second standard, wherein each plug is assigned an actuating slider (22, 24, 26), which is led outside through a sliding slot (42) in the housing and is designed to displace the plug between a readiness position, in which the plug is located substantially within the housing, and a use position, in which the plug is located outside the housing so that it can be used, wherein the first plug comprises a plug body and a first and a second contact pin, wherein, in the use position, both the plug body and the first and the second contact pin are arranged outside the housing such that they can be used and, in the readiness position, both the plug body and the first and the second contact pin are located in the housing, wherein the second plug comprises a third and a fourth contact pin and the third and the fourth contact pin are likewise guided in the plug body of the first plug.
