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.

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.

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.

  • 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

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.

    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)

    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.
