    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Perfect.

    • Written by from Chadds Ford

    I used this set with my Macbook Pro charger this summer when I was traveling around Europe. Went to 7 different countries and was never without the proper adapter.

    Definitely worth the $40 to be covered for the entire trip.

    Did everything was meant to do

    • Written by from Moreno Valley

    Bought this the day before my trip to Europe and was set. I took 3 of the adapters that I needed for my trip and they worked perfectly. Also the additional charging unit was a plus for me. Nothing negative to say about the product.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Upton

    i purchased this set in 2009 for a trip to Europe. It worked perfectly and easily at keeping my MacBook charged in England. It was easy to connect my iPod to the MacBook to keep it charged, too. Then in 2010, I found myself in England and in the Netherlands - I never expected to need a different adapter, but when I needed it, it was there. A very good thing! :)

    It was really good to know that when I used the adapter set, I didn't need to worry about whether or not it would work or that it might damage my computer. It took the worry out of plugging in my Apple stuff!

    My husband is lucky enough to need it in July on his trip to France - you just never know when you'll need that adapter piece that you thought was just extra. :)

    World...only parts of the world

    • Written by from San antonio

    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

    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.

    Central Europe, Thin vs. Thick Round Pins

    • Written by from Grantham

    In Switzerland... only the thin-round-pin adapter works. The thick-round-pin adapter does NOT work here, contrary to suggestions in other postings on this site.

    If traveling to Europe, make sure you bring the adapter with two thin round pins.

    Oh, the kit itself is great.

    Good, Good.

    • Written by from Skaneateles

    Great idea to grab one of these if you plan on going overseas - worked perfectly for me. The only issue is the 'bulk' of the full set, which can make it a bit inconvenient considering its intended purpose. Luckily, I knew where I was headed so I just took the few components I knew I would need. You would think that this set would come with a travel case, yet curiously, it does not.

    As an Apple product, you don’t need to worry about sketchy components and/or manufacturing as much as you might get with similar products, 'elsewhere'. Comes with everything you need for adapting Macbook, iPod & iPhone to charge in local outlets (even comes with spare sync cable) - which makes it a great value in my book. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it anyway...Works great, good buy.

    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"???????
