Why multifunctional sockets are the cure to all travel woes

Saturday, 11 August 2018  |  Amit

So you’ve survived check-in, successfully negotiated your cab fare, and been dropped off at your hotel in one piece. Stress over, right? Wrong.


You open out all your bags, fumbling frantically through every compartment, but you still can’t find it. You’re down to 0 bars, and a red light is flashing. Things are getting desperate. And that’s when you realise - you forgot to bring your phone charger!


A nightmare scenario for some. The prospect of negotiating the highways and byways of your holiday destination without Google maps. The prospect of a random restaurant decision without the help of Tripadvisor. The prospect of an unselfied day out.


But things don’t have to be that way, and we at Retrotouch know that one of the appurtenances of 21st century life is being able to quickly and easily charge your phone or portable device. Visiting foreign countries can put a spanner in the works, but it needn’t cause a problem. Why? Because we provide a helpful range of multifunctional sockets to ensure hotel and Airbnb guests aren’t stranded.   

For those fed up of having to stack their adapters like they’re putting together a lego set, our multifunction versions cater for a wide range of different standards. With a variety of international inputs all pieced together into the same stylish socket, we’ve extended our Crystal range to provide the perfect international power solution for you.

Here is a breakdown showing the applications covered by our fantastically versatile sockets.

Type A + B: used in, among others, North and Central America and Japan
Type C:  used in all countries of Europe except the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta
Type G: mainly used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Malta, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong
Ideal for hotels, meeting rooms, commercial and domestic use.
UK Product uses: Electric shavers, electric toothbrush, and many more..

No need to stress over adapters. No need to go without power. Our models cater for guests all over the world to create the perfect universal power socket.  

So how is this achieved?
Our units manage to fuse together all these inputs while maintaining the superb aesthetic quality provided by our Crystal range. Sleek glass panels, screwless sockets, and two striking colour options ensure that you won’t compromise in appearance.

Our multifunction sockets are available as single or double versions. And to bring that top-of-the-range feel to your interior, we have chrome-trim exteriors that really give that Retrotouch sheen.

We recognise how important convenience is for the modern traveller. And with a growing reliance on technology, power socket solutions should be as accessible as possible. With our multifunction power socket range, you can cater for a whole range of international fittings to provide maximum ease for overseas guests. Whether fitting out guest rooms or just your spare bedroom, it’s not difficult to realise how these sockets can come in handy for you.
