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

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. …

No lightning cable???
Why not update this product to include a lightning USB cable? Or even produce another kit to include a lightning USB cable, maybe Why not update this product to include a lightning USB cable? Or even produce another kit to include a lightning USB cable, maybe even a kit that has a short USB cable and a much longer one to give the traveler options. And please engrave the plugs with a number or label what countries they can be used in. This add-on kit would be perfect except without these things make it more cumbersome than buying plug adaptors and cables from a third parties. It would be much nicer to know it's compatible and approved by Apple if it's made by Apple. …

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. …

Can I use the plug adapters with my iPad charger?
- Asked by Kathryn B from Allen
- Apr 5, 2010
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. …

One of those "plug changers" will do the trick (not a voltage converter -- just a plug changer). The little "white block" for the iPhone takes up to 240v (even the US one -- check the fine print on the bottom by the plugs).
I went to Scotland last summer and took both my iPhone block charger and my MacBook and charger -- plugged both into a short U.S. extension cord, put a plug adapter on the end of the extension cord and went about charging my gear every night. Both power supplies auto-ranged for voltage and it worked out great! …

And the answer is actually no. South Africa uses a plug unique to Southern Africa that is incompatible with any of the plugs sold in the World Travel Adapter Kit.
