    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.

    No lightning cable???

    • Written by from FPO

    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.

    Worthless

    Plugged it in on my first trip to Germany and it worked for a millisecond. Obviously blew a fuse or something. Agree with the comment about Europe and Korea. Tried them all. Hope I can find my receipt when I get home from this trip.

    UK connector not grounded

    • Written by from Seffner

    I bought this recently because I travel and would like to use native plugs instead of adapters to US plug. However after using the new adapter, getting electrical shocks, and doing a bit of research, I find the UK adapter isn't even grounded. How hard is it to connect he ground on a plug that is already 3 prong??? Add this to the price and one star it is.

    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"???????

    Problem

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    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.

    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!
