The World Travel Adapter Kit includes a USB power adapter, a 30-pin to USB cable and a set of six AC plugs with prongs that fit different power points around the world. For world travellers, this is the perfect kit to ensure power connectivity in most countries you may travel to.
The Kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple MagSafe Power Adapters (for MacBook and MacBook Pro), Portable Power Adapters (for iBook and PowerBook) and AirPort Express.
The AC plugs included in the World Travel Adapter Kit directly support power points in North America, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Korea, Australia and Hong Kong.
Please note: To use this kit with devices that use a Lightning connector — such as iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad with Retina display — you will need a Lightning to USB Cable, sold separately.

Missing a vital component

Some of the bits are redundant (you'll alre Although the kit has plenty of bits, it's not necessarily the same as plenty of value. Some of the bits are redundant (you'll already own at least one of them) or superfluous (a separate adaptor just for Korea?). You may find it more appropriate to buy non-Apple adapters that you specifically need.
More vitally for me, it's missing the last remaining adapter that it needs to truly be a 'world' kit, that is, an 'empower' adapter for use on international flights. Come to that, why not include a 12v adaptor for use in cars?
Come on Apple, throw in the 'empower' adapter and make this kit truly global! …

Now updated for iPad
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 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. …

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. …

Can I use the plug adapters with my iPad charger?
- Asked by Kathryn B from Allen
I am an Electrical Engineer. Short answer: Yes.
Long answer: The only things that is important f I am an Electrical Engineer. Short answer: Yes.
Long answer: The only things that is important for using any AC adapters overseas are the following:
* You need to have the right type of plug. If you do not it will not fit, and if you force it, it could break.
* The adapter needs to support the right voltage for input. Some of the world uses around 110 volts. The rest uses around 220 volts. Many digital devices have power adapters that support both, which is often written as 100-240V or sometimes 110-240V. As long as it support both you are good. If it does not things get messier, and I won't get into them here.
* It must support the correct frequency for input. Again some parts of the world use 60 Hz, the rest uses 50 Hz. Just about all AC adapters support both. If the do they will say 50-60Hz.
So looking at the iPad charger:
Does it have the right plug? Probably not, but with this kit you can change the plug, so now it has the right plug.
Does it support both 110V and 220V? Yes it does. It supports from 100V to 240V.
Does it support both 50Hz and 60Hz? Yes.
Therefore: With the kit and your iPad charger it will work pretty much anywhere on earth, and even on the space station!
The last number for input is Amperage. It is related to how much Current or "Juice" it uses. You really don't need to worry about that, as all AC adapters use little enough current that they will work anywhere. …

No voltage converter needed. But you will need an adapter for their particular power outlets.
