    Expensive travel kit, works in Brazil

    Expensive like everything else apple. The adapter pieces only fit 12W adapters (iPad charger) and larger, and MagSafe power adapters. If you're looking to use with the charger that came with your iPhone, forget it. I didn't realize this when I bought it. Thankfully, I already have an iPad charger. This kit worked well in Brazil for my iPad and MacBook. Honestly, I probably would have just bought a Generic adapter to use for more than just apple stuff, but it was nice to have all the different adapters in one kit. I also think Apple charges less for this kit than what I paid for it.

    Good but limited versatility

    This kit definitely contains adapters for all the different electrical outlets in the world. However there are some limitations. It only plugs into the brick on your power cord, which both limits the length of the cord and also can sometimes make it hard to plug in. ALso, it means you can't use it for anything else. Finally, it would have been nice if there were better instructions and some kind of carrying case.

    I went to Paris, Belgium and Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago. Decided to purchase the "Apple World Travel Kit", rather than a less expensive off brand. So glad I did, my friend on the other hand bought the cheepie and you get what you pay for. The cheepie fried her new I-phone when she attempted to charge it. We used my Apple brand adapter kit the rest of the trip for blow dryers, and curling irons. Worked like a charm!

    Excellent quality adapter set for Apple products

    I really like the fact that power bricks for ipads and macbooks have interchangeable adapters built right into them. Rather than have a clumsy adapter dangling off the power brick, you just swap out the plug and you have a nicely integrated travel solution. My only wish would be a clever, well-designed packing/carrying solution to bring multiple adapters along with you without having these loose if you're looking to do some long-term travel. The box is bulky, and only the N.A. adapter folds smartly into itself.

    Well designed adapters.

    I bought this adapter set for a recent trip to Portugal, Spain and France. I needed only one of the adapters. The adapters replace the US plug that comes standard on Mac power supplies. The supplies are designed to work on 100-240 volts - so no transformer is needed - just the adapter plugs. Used it throughout a two week trip and it worked flawlessly. The only problem is that I stayed in some hotels that were very stingy with outlets. Now that I have an extensive supply of adapters, I'll have to explore more of the world!

    The Apple travel adapters set was obviously high quality and complete. For that reason, I am giving it 3 stars. Unfortunately, I tried without success to find a charger for these adapters. So, the travel kit was returned. It would have been helpful if the set included instructions that listed the compatible charger(s). Instead, I purchased a kit that included a charger and adapters. It worked perfectly throughout Italy, and in The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Lichtenstein and Switzerland.

    Very Handy with any Globe Trotting MacBook

    Just pick the adapter for your country of the moment and swap it with the adapter in your power brick. The power brick will automatically adjust to the local line voltage. Then you and your MacBook may as well be at home. This means that, if you brought a generic power adapter for other electric appliances (clock-radio, phone charger, shaver, toothbrush ...), your Mac never needs step aside to run the other goodies.

    I purchased this on sale, had I purchased at full price, I would probably have rated lower. You can effectively achieve the same results with a power convertor at a fraction of retail costs. But, if you invest in the Apple Ecosphere, it is always beat to ere on the side of caution and purchase branded products to preserve your technological investment.

    A Plug For Every Electrical Outlet

    Since I was traveling in Europe, I needed a Europlug (Schuko) adapter for my iPad’s electrical charger. I didn’t think several of the plug adapters would be used on this trip. I was wrong. I found myself in England, so another adapter gave me the ability to charge my iPad. A brilliant way to use local electrical outlets everywhere!

    I travel to Europe a couple of times a year and have a larger, bulkier adaptor that takes forever to charge my products. When I bought my new Macbook Pro and knew I would be traveling to Europe, I purchased this set too and it performed flawlessly - quick charge, no issues and easily fit in my cosmetic bag that I use for electronic devices, charges, etc.

    Having these adapters when traveling is nice because you never have to worry about frying your equipment with some weird power convertor. Also, I am able to charge my other Apple devices through my laptop, so it eliminates the need for any other adapters. The only thing is they come in this giant box and the adapters themselves aren't clearly labeled. It's easy to misplace them.

    I was planning a trip to Scotland and Italy early in the fall and knew I would need a couple adaptors to use in each country for my laptop. I thought the Apple World Travel Adaptor was the sleeker and sensible solution. Switching the power cord from one country's plug to another was very easy and, in my opinion, a better solution than using those clunky third-party adaptors.

    this set of adapters is necessary if you travel outside of north America because the plugs are widely differently from country to country. In this box one would find without exception what you need no matter where you find yourself in all four corners of the world without having to wonder and guess what fits. the box has all of them.

    I have visited many counties and this travel kit has been a life saver!! Because Apple laptop chargers are already dual voltage, I just pop in the correct plug and don't have to worry about frying my computer. And I usually just plug everything else into the laptop to charge so I don't have to worry about buying extra converters!

    World Adapters

    Purchased for a recent trip to Australia. Worked perfectly! As mentioned in the product description and other users' reviews, it does not function as an iPhone adapter per se, but it does adapt for the iPad and Mac chargers, thus allowing you to charge your phone with those products' charging units.

    Needed a travel adapter as I was traveling to Malaysia for a couple weeks. Flight required a layover stop in Doha. I managed to charge my iPad Pro, my iPhone, and MacBook Air with no issues. The adapter is a universal beast. So glad I grabbed it.

    Includes all the adaptor prongs you need for international travel. Note that these are the tips that slide on/off any iPad or MacBook Pro charge "block" They are NOT self contained adaptors. That being said they work great and had no problems converting both my IPad and MacBook charge blocks.

    My oldest daughter is traveling to Europe in late summer and needed to make sure she had adapters to charge her electronic items. These will work in each of the countries that she is visiting.

    This product served its purpose and didn’t give me any trouble. I was studying abroad in France and I needed the plug for continental Europe and this worked very well! I was scared that it wouldn’t work but it did and my MacBook worked normally.

    I used this on a trip to the U.K. It is compact and I am happy I bought it in advance of my trip. I did not give it 5 stars only due to the price. There are cheaper alternatives but I trusted Apple quality and it worked well.
