New Zealand power is the same as Australia - 240 volts. the Adapter shipped with the Mac will work fine, as it auto switches.
Will this work on a MacBook Pro 4,1?
Will the L-shaped MagSafe plug fit properly into the MagSafe port on the MBP, since it's not the original T-plug? I've read that the dimensions are not the same on the two types of plugs.

Aslong as it is the correct shape and wattage then yes, just check though, i have used a 'T' shaped one for a while on my MBP rather than the original 'L' one and it works fine. Might be worth taking is somewhere where they have MacBooks on display and trying it out there before you buy .

Not a voltage converter, but a world travel adapter kit. You can find this online through the apple store.

Apple 85W magsafe Power Adapter.
Electrically: Apple's MagSafe adapters are labelled for AC input of "100-240V 50/60 Hz". They should work worldwide. (Mine does).
Physically: Most of Italy uses European-style two-round-pin AC sockets. There are local variations - some sockets have earth/ground connectors also, though the Magsafe adapter does not need this. You can get many converters to convert from US flat-blade mains plugs to Euro-style sockets. Best is to use the correct Euro-plug to fit directly on the MagSafe in place of (say) the US flat-blade AC plug. Second-best is to use a lead from Magsafe's own Figure-8 AC connector to the wall socket. This prevents the weight of the Magsafe dragging itself out of the wall outlet.
Air Transport: You should carry your adapters with you so that you can power-up your laptop for security at any airport you pass through.

No. Apple power supplies are rates 100VAC to 240VAC. You want to look for the proper power cord to prevent having to use a bulky plug adapter. I suggest calling Apple at the 1-800-My-Apple to order a power cord for the country you plan on using the device in. Something to consider is other countries that use 220VAC also use PAL instead of the US's NTSC.

100-240V AC. It is safe to use worldwide, you'll just need an adapter to make it fit in the wall outlet.

I am traveling to Amsterdam & Barcelona - need info about Voltage, not plug adapters. Will iPhone charger work with the Euro voltage (220V, 50Hz)?Answer
iPhone chargers work from 110-240V. No issues on the voltage for the iPhone USB power adapter. It is designed to work worldwide thus the 100-240V.
Can I charge my iPhone 6 Plus & iPhone 7 Plus with my USB cord plugged into my boyfriend's charger (w/o adapter) that uses 220 volts? He's in Egypt.

I'm taking my 13inc MacBook to Australia. Do I need a voltage converter?

You shouldn't need a voltage converter. Australia is 220 volts, 50 Hertz. Check your adapter. It should say "110-240 volts, 50-60 Hertz" You may need an adapter to match the outlets there. You can search for "electrical outlet Australia" to see what the proper shape is for the country. You can buy a set of adapters that will cover most countries in many consumer electronics stores, or large discount stores. Then you will be set wherever you travel.
Have a good trip.
