    How is this supposed to fit an iPod, iPad or iPhone charger?

    • Written by David W from Ajax

    The receptacles (input sockets) on each of the adapter units are designed to accommodate a MacBook charger only. The pins on both my iPad Air and my iPhone 6s chargers don't fit in the receptacles at all. I'm really disappointed and frustrated that this is not explained in the product description or shown on the portion of the product packaging that's displayed on the Apple website. Nor is it clear from examining the box before you open it. Now I've opened it, it's totally useless (unless you need it for a MacBook), and I can't even return it for a refund.

    No US Ground Prong

    • Written by Scott D from Murfreesboro

    I can't recommend this product because it lacks the 3 prong grounded plug for the USA, which I need to eliminate noise coming from the headphone jack while recording my guitar into a USB port and charging the MacBook at the same time.

    no Africa!

    • Written by Heidi C from victor

    Ok, I admit I didn't read through the entire description. I guess when I read "World" travel adapter kit I assumed that would include Africa. It is an entire continent! Fail

    Misleading Item Description

    • Written by Anne P from Edmonton

    I am one of the many who were disappointed with this product. It does not include USB ports which makes it unusable for iPhone. Yes, I could have found this out if I had read more of the reviews before I ordered it, but I trusted the description provided by Apple instead. I received it just before my trip and was unable to return it because by the time I got home more than 15 days had elapsed. I ended up borrowing others' adapters in Germany and buying one in UK. Lesson learned.

    Purchased this for a trip

    • Written by Stephen K from New York

    This adapter is poorly made and described to me as a replacement for power adapter. Very difficult to change plugs and just plastic junk. Apple should be ashamed. Not usable,

    Didn't fit the socket in my hotel in Zurich

    The Swiss hotel staff took great pleasure in pointing out "this isn't Swiss"

    Take great exception to the "Don't complain" reviewer

    • Written by Tom E from Jackson Heights

    The product description is indeed extremely misleading. I quote "The kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, and iPad." No indication that the converters only fit the MagSafe Power Converters. I bought the adapters for a trip to Ireland with my girlfriend. I thought I had done well. Luckily, I opened a box a few hours before our flight, and realized that they were not compatible with the iPhone 5 charger. Went to an Apple Store, and they were totally clueless about how to help me. Only one of the employees knew that I needed an additional converter (not mentioned on any of the product information online), and, of course, the store didn't have one! So, luckily, I was able to find plug adapters at a very good electronics store and saved the day! Extremely doubtful if I will will ever buy an Apple accessory again-sure, the simple package design might be aesthetically pleasing, but it is often at the expense of necessary information.

    Be sure before you buy

    • Written by thomas Y from Lake Toxaway

    We bought this adapter two weeks ago for a trip to Italy. We stayed in two very nice hotels. This adapter did not fit in any outlet, and we tried them everywhere. Not one. Fortunately we happened to have brought another generic adapter that did work. Please be very sure the adapter works in your locations, Italy not so well. Back home and happier.

    This kit is problematic

    • Written by E A D from London

    First of all, there are seven different adapters in this box, including one for the UK, which doesn't make sense, given that it's sold in the UK. Anyway, I only need an adapter for North America, not the whole world. So now I have 6 adapters that are totally useless to me. I've had to pay £25 for the use of one adapter, which is a tiny piece of plastic with two bits of metal and weighs a couple of grams. Crazy. The second issue is that the adapter doesn't have a cord! It attaches to the power box, which then gets plugged directly into the socket, so the big power box goes straight into the socket and the total length of cord is now halved. Insane! Before buying this product, I phoned customer service and stated specifically three times that I needed a Power Adapter Extension Cable (the exact name used on the website), but with prongs for North America. She said what I needed is the multi-prong adapter kit. Well, actually, it turns out to not be what I need. So I've made a long journey into London and battled heaving throngs of people to buy something that isn't what I asked for, and now have to go all the way back into London to return it. I am not pleased. I am leaving the country in two days and I don't have time for this hassle! Please advise your customer service people better, offer the option of buying only one adapter as needed, and please attach a cord!!

    DO NOT PURCHASE

    • Written by Arianna P from Fairfield

    I LOVE apple products! I have not bought anything else in the last (around) 10 years, but this is arguably the WORST thing I have spent my money on. I never write reviews for products (this is my first one) but I have had a terrible experience. Luckily I had an adapter for Italy and my dad had lent me his old iPhone charger or else I would not have been able to charge my laptop. This kit did NOTHING. I tried all the plugs and none of them fit. Also my roommate had just taken the one for italy (since the box says that that one is good for "continental europe" but she hasnt been able to fit her plug into the outlet here in italy. I rarely say that anything is a waste of money (it may not work 100% as planned or something like that), but this is 100% a WASTE OF MONEY!!!! buy an adapter somewhere for less than $20 and plug you apple charge into that. I haven't had problems yet, regardless of what apple store employees tell you.
