    Very Satisfied!

    • Written by from Gowanbrae

    This was a very useful purchase for my recent travels to London, Paris, Hong Kong, and even across the border into Guangzhou China.

    Each adapter I used proved to be of great use for charging my iPhone, Macbook, and even my mother's iPad. The inclusion of a iPhone/iPad/iPod charger has also come in very handy for weekend trips, etc. When its not at all convenient to be constantly ripping out the charger from underneath my bed.

    Would definitely recommend this product to anyone who travels a lot or had plans to, providing it suits your needs.

    Based on versatility (between not just the iPod chargers but also MagSafe Chargers for Mac) and value (costing just a bit more than a charger by itself but with the inclusion of all the adapters) this is a great buy!

    A simple & elegant solution!

    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.

    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.

    No South African Adapter included

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I like this product although I would have left out the USB charger point as this is included with every single Apple product purchased and just made it about the adapters. I also would have included a South African adapter which I think a lot of southern africa use.

    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"???????

    Problem

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    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.

    Much better deal than paying $29 for the Apple USB Power Adapter

    • Written by from Fairfax

    Works like a charm and great value. When I am not travelling, I am using it as a secondary charger in the living room. If you are considering the $29 Apple USB Power Adapter, I would definitely pay an extra $10 to get the Travel Kit instead.

    This is an excellent product at a price close to that of a power adaptor.

    Need it for long term or short term.

    • Written by from Portland

    These travel adapter is definitely very useful.
    I thought a universal travel adapter should solve this problem when traveling but it is not!
    A universal travel adapter in between the charger and the socket make the whole system bulky so much so that the connection becomes loose, so, it doesn't charge the device unless we do some maneuvers!!! ( Imagine with limited resources in hotel room!)
    This product is very useful for traveller to bring along whether for long term or short term abroad!

    perfect for studying abroad

    • Written by from Mount Juliet

    I was in Europe for 4+ months and really loved the adaptor kit. No worrying about frying your computer or anything else. Super handy and useful. It is expensive, but if you ever lose your ipod cable or wall plug for the US, you can use the one from the kit.

    Now updated for iPad

    • Written by from CAMBRIDGE

    I bought one of these at my local Apple store yesterday, and was pleased to see that it now includes a 10W adaptor which will fast-charge the iPad, and the new thinner UK plug adaptor, which is much less bulky than the old one. The USB cable included is now the new style with the squarer ends.

    For my money, this kit is much better value than the iPad charger itself - for an extra £5, you get a complete set of international plugs, and all you lose is the rather bulky and heavy 6' extension cable.

    It would be nice, though, if Apple included some sort of case to keep all the bits together - even a simple drawstring bag would be nice.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Very useful...

    • Written by from Cupertino

    Just got this product a few days ago, and it just works fine. I've tried half of the plugs recently and they all charge my iPod properly. I don't see any flaws in this product, except that in my opinion, they really should have put a lower price on it. I just see it as kind of a rip off, since you will only be using it when traveling, and it only contains some plastic plugs and a wire. That's all.

    Works better than expected

    • Written by from Plymouth

    I got this kit because I am in Sweden for the summer and was bringing both my Macbook and iPod with me. It works perfectly, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that both the thick and thin pin plugs work in the outlets (I brought them both just in case), so I can leave one on the iPod charger and the other on my power adapter. The only complaint I have is that I didn't know they carry them at the store near my home, so I paid a hefty shipping fee to get it in time, but I suppose I can only blame that on myself. Also, the thick pin plug seems to make a distressing sort of "crunching" sound when I pull it out of the outlet, because the pins are not smooth (the metal part sticks out beyond the plastic), so I put that on the iPod charger since I won't be using it as much. Otherwise, a perfect product for not too bad of a price! :-)

    Excellent accessory for Mac enthusiast

    • Written by from Silver Spring

    I picked this up for my iPhone for a trip to France/Ireland and it really worked out great. After killing my iPhone battery on the plane to France, I used the French plug adapter in the airport and was good as new. I now also have a MBP and this kit will also work with the MagSafe adapters as well and this is super bonus for me. Only thing I'd like to see is possibly, some sort of carrying case for this thing. Had to carry around a whole bunch plugs in my bag last time so something small, simple would great.
