    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"???????

    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.

    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.

    Absolutely Worth It

    • Written by from Leamington

    The USB power adapter is a great product. But 35 bucks? This includes 6 AC plugs and prongs along with a USB cable that works with every iPod and iPhone in existence. It has definitely helped me out a lot, especially when I went to Europe. When the electrical sockets were different.

    I have to travel to China every summer to my Dad's house and I was in need of a charger and outlet converter since the voltage and power cord plug there is different at some places. I also plan on not bringing a computer everywhere I go.

    Look anyone who is willing to spend that much money to go ti these countries or have their company do it is willing to spend $40 so they can use their cell Phone. Look it's a great deal and if you're leaving the country with your iPhone you pretty much NEED it so... good product

    Not very practical

    • Written by from Toronto

    The adapter plugs are limited to this unit only, ie cannot be used with any other appliance such as a camera battery charger, shaver etc. I bought the simple Apple USB power adapter (still 35$ expensive) along with a good quality universal travel adapter for 25$ (Heys) and my travel needs were met.

    Downside: I was limited to charging one unit at a time but everything worked out fine.
