Great! But one problem...
I love the fact that my Macbook and iPhone can both take advantage of this feature, and this kit is excellent except for One Thing I love the fact that my Macbook and iPhone can both take advantage of this feature, and this kit is excellent except for One Thing. Why not label the darn plugs? I write this only in hope that they will improve this in the future. Even a letter code would help. Korea and Europe are so similar that you cannot tell them apart. There are slight thickness differences, but it takes some effort to differentiate them. Why not emboss the countries or a letter code that corresponds to the images on the back of the box? …

Great for iPods, iPhones and Apple laptops
I traveled to the Netherlands recently and bought the World Travel Adapter Kit. Even though it says the thick round adapter is for I traveled to the Netherlands recently and bought the World Travel Adapter Kit. Even though it says the thick round adapter is for Korea, it works just fine in Europe, so you can use both the thick and thin adapters--at least in the Netherlands. All the sockets I tried accepted both adapters without problems. This kit is great--but now I need a good excuse to visit all the other countries I have adapters for.
Tip: Also take along a couple of universal plug adapters (available at Radio Shack, etc.). I took my iMac along with me and was able to use the adapter just fine, without having to buy a European iMac cable from the local Apple store. …

Full of unnecessary bits
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 devi 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. …

Pretty Presentation, Lacking Regional Clarity
After reading several reviewers a common theme of poor labeling or lack of appeared. This made me leery of purchasing the world tr After reading several reviewers a common theme of poor labeling or lack of appeared. This made me leery of purchasing the world travel kit for some time. While visiting the Apple store I looked at the box and it identifies which adapters go with each regions, but when it comes to Continental Europe and Korea, here the confusion sets in for me.
The two similar adapters are depicted with barely discernible prong thicknesses. Even when the package is opened there is no clear way to tell Central Europe and Korea apart. It becomes clearer when you open the provided paper documentation and turn to page 4 that Apple clearly state the "round thicker pins" are for Korea and the "round thin pins" are for Central Europe. There is similar confusion with the North America and China bladed prong; which again is clearly explained on page 4 of the documentation. "...blades w/out holes" for China and "...blades w/holes", for North America.
I'll be taking a picture of page 4 and keeping it in the cloud for reference. I'll also be placing some of distinguishing mark on the Central Europe prong with a corresponding mark on the exterior box picture. The two pics along with markings will help me remember which one I need to take.
I've mentioned the confusion to the Apple store staff and I also hope Apple will make easily recognizable changes or markings for the future product cycles.
As a side note, the Kit domes with the older style 30 pin adapter; take note if you have a newer iDevice. When we return from our travels I'll update of there are any product failures. …
