    Much better deal than paying $29 for the Apple USB Power Adapter

    • Written by from Fairfax

    Works like a charm and great value. When I am not travelling, I am using it as a secondary charger in the living room. If you are considering the $29 Apple USB Power Adapter, I would definitely pay an extra $10 to get the Travel Kit instead.

    Very useful...

    • Written by from Cupertino

    Just got this product a few days ago, and it just works fine. I've tried half of the plugs recently and they all charge my iPod properly. I don't see any flaws in this product, except that in my opinion, they really should have put a lower price on it. I just see it as kind of a rip off, since you will only be using it when traveling, and it only contains some plastic plugs and a wire. That's all.

    Not very practical

    • Written by from Toronto

    The adapter plugs are limited to this unit only, ie cannot be used with any other appliance such as a camera battery charger, shaver etc. I bought the simple Apple USB power adapter (still 35$ expensive) along with a good quality universal travel adapter for 25$ (Heys) and my travel needs were met.

    Downside: I was limited to charging one unit at a time but everything worked out fine.

    Worthless

    • Written by from Round Rock

    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.

    Absolutely Worth It

    • Written by from Leamington

    The USB power adapter is a great product. But 35 bucks? This includes 6 AC plugs and prongs along with a USB cable that works with every iPod and iPhone in existence. It has definitely helped me out a lot, especially when I went to Europe. When the electrical sockets were different.

    Perfect Addition

    • Written by

    I have to travel to China every summer to my Dad's house and I was in need of a charger and outlet converter since the voltage and power cord plug there is different at some places. I also plan on not bringing a computer everywhere I go.

    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.

    Works better than expected

    • Written by from Plymouth

    I got this kit because I am in Sweden for the summer and was bringing both my Macbook and iPod with me. It works perfectly, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that both the thick and thin pin plugs work in the outlets (I brought them both just in case), so I can leave one on the iPod charger and the other on my power adapter. The only complaint I have is that I didn't know they carry them at the store near my home, so I paid a hefty shipping fee to get it in time, but I suppose I can only blame that on myself. Also, the thick pin plug seems to make a distressing sort of "crunching" sound when I pull it out of the outlet, because the pins are not smooth (the metal part sticks out beyond the plastic), so I put that on the iPod charger since I won't be using it as much. Otherwise, a perfect product for not too bad of a price! :-)

    perfect for studying abroad

    • Written by from Mount Juliet

    I was in Europe for 4+ months and really loved the adaptor kit. No worrying about frying your computer or anything else. Super handy and useful. It is expensive, but if you ever lose your ipod cable or wall plug for the US, you can use the one from the kit.

    Need it for long term or short term.

    • Written by from Portland

    These travel adapter is definitely very useful.
    I thought a universal travel adapter should solve this problem when traveling but it is not!
    A universal travel adapter in between the charger and the socket make the whole system bulky so much so that the connection becomes loose, so, it doesn't charge the device unless we do some maneuvers!!! ( Imagine with limited resources in hotel room!)
    This product is very useful for traveller to bring along whether for long term or short term abroad!

    Look anyone who is willing to spend that much money to go ti these countries or have their company do it is willing to spend $40 so they can use their cell Phone. Look it's a great deal and if you're leaving the country with your iPhone you pretty much NEED it so... good product

    1st time traveling outside of your country?

    • Written by from Chickasha

    If you're like me, you love or want to travel! I recently graduated college and traveled to Italy. My first time to travel outside of the US and I was doing this alone! I figured the Hotel in Florence, Italy, would have an adapter for me to use, or would know where I could get one. I didn't want to take the chance that an off brand didn't work; nor did I want to go shopping for one, while I was on my very own vacation.

    Buy this! It works at the Airports, and in the Hotel rooms.

    (This is with my iPhone 4S)

    Pretty Presentation, Lacking Regional Clarity

    • Written by from YOUNTVILLE

    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.

    Great converter kit except....

    • Written by from Cloverdale

    The plugs should be labeled as another reviewer mentioned. 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.

    easier than an adapter/ converter

    • Written by from Spearman

    I recently studied abroad for 6 months in Europe and used this kit for my 2013 MacBook Air, 2nd Gen iPad, and iPhone 5S. This was MUCH easier than a converter/adapter as it was significantly more compact and also because the iPad and MacBook charges have built-in converters, there was no problem of an electrical overload (a friend was using a small, non-apple converter with her iPhone charging cube electrocuted herself and caused our hostel to lose electricity). One complaint is, like other reviewers, labeling of the different countries would be helpful. Another thing that needs to be updated about this kit is either including a Lightening cord in addition to the 30-pin cord, or the small adapter piece (which I eventually bought because it was easier to travel with rather than 2 cords). Throwing in a set of EarPods would've been great so that I only had to pack this kit with me to have almost all my accessories with me, but that's not really a deal breaker. I have been and will continue to recommend this kit for anyone who travels outside of the United States.
