    Yes, it will work, but you need an adapter plug ($9.99 at Radio Shack, Model: PCC-1 | Catalog #: 273-1448). New Zealand electrical grid is 240 V, 50 Hz. Written on the side of the Power Adapter is: "Input 100 - 240 V" and "50 - 60 Hz". That covers it.

    Have a nice trip.

  • Yes, but order this Apple World Travel Adapter Kit from the Apple Store: Type MB974ZM into the search and it will take you to the proper product.

    "The World Travel Adapter Kit includes a USB power adapter, a USB cable, and a set of six AC plugs with prongs that fit different electrical outlets around the world. For world travelers, this is the perfect kit to ensure power connectivity in most countries you may travel to.
    The Kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, Apple MagSafe Power Adapters, Portable Power Adapters, and AirPort Express.
    The AC plugs included in the World Travel Adapter Kit directly support outlets in North America, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Korea, Australia, and Hong Kong."

    This list isn't all inclusive as many of the countries not listed use the same outlets as those listed: IE, Australia and New Zealand.
