    A couple things: First, the kit doesn't come with a lighting cable, so Apple just gave (charged) me for a useless cable. I even asked the store associate that helped with the product if it came with a lighting cable and he said "yes." Apple needs to train their store associates better. Second, they could have condensed the packaging of the plugs into a single USB adapter. Now I have multiple plugs that could easily get lost.

    Out of date

    • Written by from Tigard

    I was given this as a gift. I was surprised to find that it included a USD-to-30 pin cable rather than a USB-to-Lightning cable. I assumed that the giver had purchased it last year and waited to give it to me. Then I checked online and was astonished to find that Apple is still selling these with obsolete cables. Like many long-time Apple users, I have a handful of USB-to-30 pin cables for which I no longer have any use. An extra USB-to-Lightning cable would have been handy.

    Well made but badly configured

    It seems this kit hasn't received an update since 2010 and therefore does not ship with either a Lightning cable or the 12w adapter, which is needed to fast charge the iPad Air. It's nice all 6 world wide plugs are included but for this price I would expect to receive a bag with the kit to take all with you when travelling.

    Full of unnecessary bits

    • Written by from Beaumaris

    If you've just bought your first iOS device and want to go abroad, then this is great.

    If, however, you've got a couple of devices that came with the USB chargers, then if you want to buy just the 'duckhead' plugs, you're spending a lot of money on a charger you don't actually need.

    Similarly, given that iPad and iPhone now charge using a Lightening adaptor, the charging lead is also pretty useless.

    Thirdly, if you're after just on or two of the adaptors (say, European and US), then you're probably never going to use the others.

    It would be a lot more use if Apple sold the 'duckhead' plugs on their own, even in packs of three - if you're going to the US, you could buy just the US adaptors; or if you're going to Australia, you can buy just the Australian adaptors.

    Instead, you're going to end up paying for a lot of adaptors you're probably never going to use - and heaven help you if you want to charge an iPhone and an iPad at the same time in somewhere like Australia, because you're going to have to spend £70 just to get two tiny adaptor plugs.

    Hardly good value.

    Not Worldwide

    We bought this kit expecting that it would do as it says on the packet, cover the world.
    We are going to South Africa and now discover that none of the 6 adapters in the package will cover this major country.

    Only works with Apple products

    • Written by from Springfield

    While the adaptors work great for all countries, because of how the adaptors slide unto the charger, you can't use the adaptors for any other electronics (like a camera charger). So...you have to bring multiple adaptors unless all you have is Apple products. I ended up buying a cheap $3 adaptor at the airport that worked for all electronics. The charger already is dual voltage, all you have to do is get it plugged in. I was looking for a great adaptor set with Apple quality, which it is, but the exclusive design makes the $39 price tag ridiculous. Save your money and buy a cheap prong adaptor at the airport when you get off the plane.

    World...only parts of the world

    This so called world adapter does not serve India or Pakistan ...and good luck finding information for other than the eight listed countries or Europe . This product would be greatly improved by including a matrix of which adapter by the other hundreds of places in the world

    Not very practical

    • Written by from Toronto

    The adapter plugs are limited to this unit only, ie cannot be used with any other appliance such as a camera battery charger, shaver etc. I bought the simple Apple USB power adapter (still 35$ expensive) along with a good quality universal travel adapter for 25$ (Heys) and my travel needs were met.

    Downside: I was limited to charging one unit at a time but everything worked out fine.
