Product Information

  • 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 electrical outlets around the world. For world travelers, 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 outlets 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.

    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?

    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.

    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 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.

    I purchased 3 of these based on the recommendations of the Apple specialist. They are definitely the thing to have for world trave I purchased 3 of these based on the recommendations of the Apple specialist. They are definitely the thing to have for world travel. The one draw back is that Apple seems to be behind the times with their own product. We have 2 iPhone 5s and a new iPad mini all these take the new thunderbolt cable, but the world traveler kit comes with the old style cable which does me no service. If you are buying this product for use with your Macbook you will be very happy with the product I would give it a 5 star rating. For the $40 you might think you could get the right cable for the devices you own. The right cable cost $19 so it is expensive to fix the problem on your own. I do recommend staying with all the Apple approved cables and chargers so that is partially why I am in this predicament. I had to return my traveler kits for now. I hope that they update the traveler pack before I leave for my trip as they are very nice and I would like to own 3-4 of them.

  • easier than an adapter/ converter

    I recently studied abroad for 6 months in Europe and used this kit for my 2013 MacBook Air, 2nd Gen iPad, and iPhone 5S. This was I recently studied abroad for 6 months in Europe and used this kit for my 2013 MacBook Air, 2nd Gen iPad, and iPhone 5S. This was MUCH easier than a converter/adapter as it was significantly more compact and also because the iPad and MacBook charges have built-in converters, there was no problem of an electrical overload (a friend was using a small, non-apple converter with her iPhone charging cube electrocuted herself and caused our hostel to lose electricity). One complaint is, like other reviewers, labeling of the different countries would be helpful. Another thing that needs to be updated about this kit is either including a Lightening cord in addition to the 30-pin cord, or the small adapter piece (which I eventually bought because it was easier to travel with rather than 2 cords). Throwing in a set of EarPods would've been great so that I only had to pack this kit with me to have almost all my accessories with me, but that's not really a deal breaker. I have been and will continue to recommend this kit for anyone who travels outside of the United States.

    Yes, it should work in both places.
    You would use the continental European pins in both.

    Egypt u Yes, it should work in both places.
    You would use the continental European pins in both.

    Egypt uses mostly standard EU style CEE 7/4 and CEE 7/5 (and some old non-grounded) sockets.
    Israel uses its own design of sockets which will usually accept CEE 7/16 (the flat continental European low power 2.5amp plugs used in this kit).

    Both countries use 220-230V 50Hz (same as Europe) too.

    Just as a note for Europe

    In Europe, the vast majority of countries use the CEE 7 family of plugs and sockets. These use two pin plugs and recessed sockets. There are two variations : CEE 7/4 (originated in Germany) uses scraping ground contacts at the top and bottom of the plug and CEE 7/5 (originated in France) uses a pin that sticks out of the socket which connects with a hole in the face of the plug. All modern European CEE 7/7 (16 amp grounded) and 7/16 (low power up to 2.5amp non-grounded) and 7/17 (16 amp non-grounded) fit both of these socket types perfectly.

    However, Italy, Denmark and Switzerland use the same 2-pin system for live and neutral but developed their own incompatible grounding systems that use a 3rd pin. So, the 2.5amp flat non-grounded plug found on small appliances also works in those countries, but large 16amp and grounded European plugs do not necessarily work or may not connect the ground and should not be used there.

    The UK, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta use a totally different system called BS1363 which has 3 rectangular pins and a fused plug.

    However, *ALL* EU countries use exactly the same voltage and frequency : 230V 50Hz. So, everything is 100% electrically compatible and the same safety standards apply in all countries (CENELEC/CEN standards and the CE safety approval system).

    So, really it's not as complicated as people make out in Europe, other than slightly different outlets in some countries (and totally different in Britain and Ireland)
