    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.

    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)

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    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.

    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.

    This is an excellent product at a price close to that of a power adaptor.
