    Pretty good value considering...

    • Written by from Somerset

    Considering that you get an extra charger and cable that is.

    Yes, I could have gone out and picked up various 3rd party adapters at about $10 each, but I needed an extra 10w charger for my iPod2, and thsi kit seems to be of good quality, so this purchase made sense.

    A handy soft case might have been nice - I can't imagine carrying this box - but in reality I'll probably only ever be taking the base charger, the cable and an adapter or two on any trip.

    This is a bargain!! High quality too with a solid warranty.

    • Written by from Carmichael

    I don't get all the reviewers saying this is expensive. Yes, Apple accessories can be pricey, but the mini-USB adapter than comes with the iPhone is $29, and the USB cable that also comes with the iPhone and iPods is $19. You get a beefier (but still compact) USB charger, AND another cable, so even without the international adapters, you are saving $10. I have the CandyShell case for the iPhone 4 (which I LOVE - great protection but not too big), but it ONLY takes the Apple cable for charging/syncing, and I like having a cable in the car, and one in the house. My wife has an iPod Touch, with NO charger, so the extra charger is welcome even when we are not out of the country. So if you're saving even before you exit the country, just going to one country is a huge savings.

    Plus, the adapters can be used on my MacBook Pro charger (or just about any Aple laptop charger made in the last 10 years). And from what others have written, the Korea adapter can be used in Europe, so if that is true, you can use one plug on the laptop charger, while using the other on the included USB charger, and charge your laptop and iPhone without having to have the laptop on all night.

    Finally, MANY generic usb chargers out there do not have enough juice to charge an iPod or an iPhone. And many generic charging cables won't fit through cases like my Candyshell. Plus, normally none of the generic chargers, adapters or cables come with a full one-year warranty. Often there is NO warranty.

    Rather than spend $29 on an extra USB charger, for only $10 more you get an extra cable, plus everything you need for travel.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Upton

    i purchased this set in 2009 for a trip to Europe. It worked perfectly and easily at keeping my MacBook charged in England. It was easy to connect my iPod to the MacBook to keep it charged, too. Then in 2010, I found myself in England and in the Netherlands - I never expected to need a different adapter, but when I needed it, it was there. A very good thing! :)

    It was really good to know that when I used the adapter set, I didn't need to worry about whether or not it would work or that it might damage my computer. It took the worry out of plugging in my Apple stuff!

    My husband is lucky enough to need it in July on his trip to France - you just never know when you'll need that adapter piece that you thought was just extra. :)

    Central Europe, Thin vs. Thick Round Pins

    • Written by from Grantham

    In Switzerland... only the thin-round-pin adapter works. The thick-round-pin adapter does NOT work here, contrary to suggestions in other postings on this site.

    If traveling to Europe, make sure you bring the adapter with two thin round pins.

    Oh, the kit itself is great.

    Adapter does not properly ground in german outlets! Shock hazard!

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I bought this before moving from USA to DE. When I arrived I was *literally* shocked to find that it was not properly grounded. Touching anywhere on my MacBook Pro would cause my fingertips to vibrate with electric shocks. I have fortunately not been harmed, and it seems to charge the laptop battery, but this product (atleast the european adapter) is a serious shock hazard. I want my money back!

    Very well made, but consider alternatives

    • Written by from Richmond

    This is a very good product. However, it only works for Apple products for which it is designed and if you use it for the laptop adapter, you give up the power cord between the power adapter and the wall...so you need to be closer to the outlet. Consider purchasing a simple plug adapter kit like the one Targus sells. The US plug just plugs into one end of each adapter and then you can plug it into the wall in each country. I had both with me and found the Targus adapter set worked for most US plugs on world power adapters.

    Travel light and charge your gear from anywhere

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    I initially bought this kit to use the plugs with my MagSafe charger, but the inclusion of the USB charger and iPod cable make this 2009 edition of the Apple World Travel Kit better value than the previous ones (especially for iPod/iPhone owners). The charger is so small, and it can be used with other USB compatible devices like my smartphone (delivers 5V at 1A).
    Everything is so well designed and space efficient that I now feel ready and light enough to tour the world in confidence ;-)

    Nearly perfect, need to buy separately too.

    • Written by from Edmonton

    This is an excellent product that I find very useful when I travel. Although, I find it necessary to buy some of the individual adapters, and I can not find them anywhere. Between my wife and myself we have several Apple products that need to be charged simultaneously. We frequent certain countries so I don't want to buy several of the whole kits, just some particular adapters.

    Perfect.

    • Written by from Chadds Ford

    I used this set with my Macbook Pro charger this summer when I was traveling around Europe. Went to 7 different countries and was never without the proper adapter.

    Definitely worth the $40 to be covered for the entire trip.

    Plug Adapters not suitable for China

    • Written by from WORCESTER

    The Chinese plug adaptor does not fit standard mains sockets in China, the Australian one would, but the shrouding on the pins prevents it from being fully plugged in. It would also be good if Apple sold the plug adaptors separately.

    • Written by from Moreno Valley

    Bought this the day before my trip to Europe and was set. I took 3 of the adapters that I needed for my trip and they worked perfectly. Also the additional charging unit was a plus for me. Nothing negative to say about the product.

    I don't know what happened. When I first got the product and tried it, it worked perfectly! But now, it's not working. Every time i tried, a message on my ipod touch would show up saying that the charger is not working.

    Not worth

    • Written by from West Orange

    I bought this World Travel Adapter Kit. When I went to India It worked for 2 days after that it didn't work. When I came back to US I tried it didn't work. I feel not worth for the price. "When the charger fails what is the use of the other 6 components"???????

    Just needs a lightning adapter, too...

    • Written by from San Diego

    I picked up the adapter kit for travel from the United States to Germany / United Kingdom. It various adapters worked exactly as expected for my variety of Mac and iDevices.

    It would have been nice if it included a lightning to 30 pin adapter to accomdate the latest iDevices.

    Good, Good.

    • Written by from Skaneateles

    Great idea to grab one of these if you plan on going overseas - worked perfectly for me. The only issue is the 'bulk' of the full set, which can make it a bit inconvenient considering its intended purpose. Luckily, I knew where I was headed so I just took the few components I knew I would need. You would think that this set would come with a travel case, yet curiously, it does not.

    As an Apple product, you don’t need to worry about sketchy components and/or manufacturing as much as you might get with similar products, 'elsewhere'. Comes with everything you need for adapting Macbook, iPod & iPhone to charge in local outlets (even comes with spare sync cable) - which makes it a great value in my book. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it anyway...Works great, good buy.
