Does this charger double as a power converter for traveling in Europe? (I have an adapter, but not a converter and I don't want to blow out my iPad).

    This power adapter works in Europe just fine. It's input is rated for 110V (found in the U.S.) and up to 240V (most European countries supply electricity at 220V). While the adapter is compatible with the electrical input you will still have to get a simple power plug adapter to change the U.S. style plug to European (or whatever your destination is). You can pick up a power plug adapter in most department stores and at most international airports. Once you get that plug it in on top of your 12W USB adapter and voila! You may also want to visit an Apple store in Europe they have the plug style you will need as well. Please remember to always use genuine Apple adapter.

  • Yes. Look at it through a magnification glass and you will see it will go up to European voltages. Like many modern electronics, it is automatically switchable. All you need is the adapter.
