    Great! But one problem...

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    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

    • Written by from Clearwater

    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.

    Handy but a bit pricy.

    • Written by from Genève 3

    I bought this and it came out very handy, especially when I needed to travel between South America, the US, UK and the Middle East within a month.
    It's a nice thing to have if it really bothers you (it does bother me!) to have a non-matching adaptor plugged into your AC charger.
    If it doesn't really bother you, then you could get non-Apple ones for half the price since, as pretty as they are, I find it a bit of a rip off to charge you 40 bucks for just a bunch of plastic adaptors (yet very nice).

    Works Great!!!!

    • Written by from Saint germain

    I bought this for a recent trip to Austria, Italy, and The Netherlands. I love that I can charge my iPhone4S and MacBookPro using the same adapter. The plugs fit right into my Mac charger. This comes with an extra USB cable also. Its so much easier than carrying around a converter along with the chargers. This way I only need one thing. I can't wait to bring this kit along with on my trip to Ghana in May. The only thing that would be really nice is a small bag to throw the plugs into and if they were all labeled.

    Great product, but why no labels?

    • Written by from Muskogee

    I've had the World Travel Adapter Kit for about two years now, and it has never failed me. I've used it in South America, Europe, and Asia with no problems. However, it does not make sense that the adapters are not labeled. I'm currently living in South Korea, and the plugs for Korea and Europe look almost exactly identical. It's very difficult to tell them apart, so having a small label on the plugs themselves would be most helpful.

    Perfect!

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I used this adapter in Europe as well as Africa, and it was great. Every adapter worked perfectly, and while I was in Uganda there was nothing else that I needed. If you have a macbook of any sort, you can also use the adapters to put onto the laptop charger, and it works just as well. It was used for my laptop, phone, ipod, and has a usb outlet to plug in anything else, like my camera or a kindle. It really was a great purchase, and I got my money's worth and more out of the use I've already had in this product.

    Great product

    • Written by from Cohasset

    I have owned this travel kit for 5 years. I bought it thinking I might want to take my laptop for conferences in the future while I was still in gradschool. What do you know I spent 3 years of my postdoc traveling every single place on this planet and only had to bring a 2 little connector for my electronics, one for home and one for the country I was visiting, it is just wonderful (I charge all my other electronics through usb ports so with the wall plug of the phone I charged my kindle with it).

    Only works with Apple products

    • Written by from Springfield

    While the adaptors work great for all countries, because of how the adaptors slide unto the charger, you can't use the adaptors for any other electronics (like a camera charger). So...you have to bring multiple adaptors unless all you have is Apple products. I ended up buying a cheap $3 adaptor at the airport that worked for all electronics. The charger already is dual voltage, all you have to do is get it plugged in. I was looking for a great adaptor set with Apple quality, which it is, but the exclusive design makes the $39 price tag ridiculous. Save your money and buy a cheap prong adaptor at the airport when you get off the plane.

    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.

    This so called world adapter does not serve India or Pakistan ...and good luck finding information for other than the eight listed countries or Europe . This product would be greatly improved by including a matrix of which adapter by the other hundreds of places in the world

    Very useful, much better deal than buying an individual adapter

    • Written by from Prescott

    I got this same kit a couple of years ago when I was studying abroad in France. It was way cheaper then buying the individual adapters and I didn't need to worry about an adapter for my laptop on a recent trip to Australia because I already had one!

    Japan - worked a treat

    • Written by from Bardwell Valley

    Recently travelled to Japan. This kit was very handy. In Japan the plugs are very close together, and using a third party adapter often caused the second power plug to be unusable due to size.

    Using this pack I was able to charge two Apple devices at once.

    The kit includes a plug for China which looks very similar to the Japanese plug in dimensions. I can confirm that they both work in Japan (and possibly the US).

    The kit also includes a new charger and USB cable.

    Need to be sold separately

    • Written by from Toronto

    This is a great kit except I will probably not use a couple of the adaptors provided. It would be even more convenient if Apple would also sell these international adaptors in singles. For example, being able to buy three or four UK adaptors as opposed to getting one in the kit and switching it around between devices would be better.
    Although, I suppose if you're fortunate enough to come across an Apple store at your travel destination than you can just buy the local adaptor units there.

    Pretty good value considering...

    • Written by from Somerset

    Considering that you get an extra charger and cable that is.

    Yes, I could have gone out and picked up various 3rd party adapters at about $10 each, but I needed an extra 10w charger for my iPod2, and thsi kit seems to be of good quality, so this purchase made sense.

    A handy soft case might have been nice - I can't imagine carrying this box - but in reality I'll probably only ever be taking the base charger, the cable and an adapter or two on any trip.

    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.
