    NOT FOR ITALY, NOT FOR iPHONE 5, 5C, 5s, other devices

    • Written by from Honolulu

    Every hotel and condo I recently rented in Rome, Venice and Florence, Italy, new or old, had 3-HOLE GROUNDED Wall Sockets, which are NOT COMPATIBLE with this WB974ZM/B Apple World Travel Adapter Kit, thus I believe rendering this Apple Product both USELESS and UNSAFE. When I say unsafe, I mean fire hazard and electrocution.

    This $39.00 kit also does not contain the Apple Lightning Connector that is required for the iPhone 5, 5C, and 5S, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPad Mini, etc. Apple also gladly sold me the required Lightning to 30-pin Adapters for an additional $29.00 ea. more.

    Also Beware: Apple has a VERY short 14 calendar day return policy: If you are like many that purchase a power adapter shortly before traveling, your length of travel may prevent you from being allowed to return products to Apple, after you find out that it does not work.

    Great converter kit except....

    The plugs should be labeled as another reviewer mentioned. Sadly, this kit was of no use in South Africa which uses a different plug configuration than any other country. Some places had additional European plugs so I was able to use the European converter but not everywhere.

    Great Idea but....

    • Written by from Rush City

    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.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Parker

    A couple things: First, the kit doesn't come with a lighting cable, so Apple just gave (charged) me for a useless cable. I even asked the store associate that helped with the product if it came with a lighting cable and he said "yes." Apple needs to train their store associates better. Second, they could have condensed the packaging of the plugs into a single USB adapter. Now I have multiple plugs that could easily get lost.

    No Indian adapter?

    Great idea, but it's missing support for three-thick pins Indian (Asian) plugs...
