    12 years of use and still great

    This kit has proven useful in so many different applications. For example, I live in China, where both the parallel and slanted outlets can be found. Most outlets and power strips contain both. I happen to have an iPad charger that came from Hong Kong, but the slanted adapter is bulky, so I use that one on my Mac that never gets unplugged, and use the parallel from my Mac on the iPad charger. The switch was elegant. As the iPad charger works great with the iPhone, when I travel I take that in addition to my iPhone charger, plus whichever adapter I need. I've been using the same kit for 12 years, and the only thing that has changed is the packaging. I still have the old box.

    Worked in Iceland!

    We purchased this adapter kit before traveling to Iceland and we were glad we did! The European adaptor worked perfectly for our iPhones the entire time we were traveling, and we were able to use it at all 6 of the locations where we slept (hotel, hostels, farm stays and air b&bs) while driving the entire ring road route 1! Like other reviews have said, make sure you also have the correct wall charger that the adapter hooks to!

    I love these adapters

    So great for my trips abroad, I can plug in my mac and not worry about blowing it out or blowing out a cheap adapter. It's also a great price, when I was in France and went to the apple store there a US-FR adapter was 22 euros alone!

    No US Ground Prong

    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.

    Redundant plugs...

    Three of these plugs are the same, though the box says one is for Europe, one is for Korea, and one is for Brazil. I can’t speak for Brazil, but I know Korea uses European plugs.

    There are also two North American plugs, but the box says one is for North America (which is correct) but that the other is for China... Um...I’ve been to China and while some outlets accommodate North American plugs, most take European or Australian plugs.

    So...whatever. I imagine they’ll work, but I would have rather bought these plug adapters separately to avoid redundancy.

    European Travelers

    For the reviewers in Italy and Switzerland you just need a little enginurity and it works great. This is because Italy (L) and CH(J) have minor variations on the normal europe plug (C) and even Poland and Germany have E and F variations, but as someone who has family in all those places, these plugs work fine every single time. If you happen to come across an L or a J that has a safety, push it in with a paperclip and the safety will open and since the middle one is ground you are ok. If you encounter an older (E F) - non europlug (C) the same is true, it always works, just means you have to be creative with the positioning.

    As for the hotel people in one review saying "this isnt swiss", well, not sure what to say, if that hotel has a normal J type this adapter fits perfectly. Unless your hotel has the very outdated type 14 socket, which I'd be slightly affraid of, and I doubt you encountered a type 15 or Type 23. I'm guessing you didnt bring the right one. I've been to Switzerland 6 times in the last 2 months, worked every single time.

    World Travel Adapter Kit...Really!?!

    Quite often useless. Should be called Only Part of the World (probably the part of the world you're traveling to) Travel Adapter Kitchen

    no Africa!

    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

    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.

    Excellent quality, feels safer

    Great quality accessory, good price. I feel much safer plugging my devices into foreign mains when using this, which I know will work, than when using third party adapters. I have had devices destroyed before but sketchy adapters, and I'm glad I no longer have to worry about that.

    Purchased this for a trip

    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,

    comprehensive but....

    Comprehensive collection of adapters but missing THE essential component for iPod,iphone etc...the USB block. My phone etc is supplied with a compact uk plug which does not have the removable pin block so I now need to buy a 12v USB power adapter to use the traveller kit adding a further £19 to the cost :(

    Quality product and delivery

    Delighted to find it has all three round two pin adapters (thick, thin, thin angled) so no more forcing to into "wrong" socket in Europe or Brazil. I ordered late on a Friday with expected delivery the following Tuesday. In fact the package appeared next day. It work as expected. All impressive.

    Didn't fit the socket in my hotel in Zurich

    Great Product, but people need to read what they are buying.

    Honestly, the only thing Apple is doing wrong, is not reviewing what all those people that complain are actually complaining without reading what they have bought..

    So sad... People wake up, this is a great product, been using it for over 3 years.. No it doesn't covnvert electricity, what it does do is enable you to plug your apple products into about any electric outlet in the world..

    Very cool!!

    It's an ADAPTER - not a charger, just like it says

    I'm cracking up at low star ratings for those who are buying a great product they don't understand. No it doesn't include the charger - that's why it's called an adapter for your charger. This is like giving new tires a poor rating because they didn't come with a car. These fit your existing chargers but not the small 5w cube charger that comes with the iPhone.

    Fair enough, but APPLE, I see this as your opportunity to do what you do best in web usability; you could make it more clear with imagery how it works and you won't get one-star ratings from those who don't read the information. It's upon you to make it simple for the lowest common denominator, and stand by the web usability axion "don't make me think!" You have my five star rating.

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

    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

    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.

    Why should I buy a full set?

    I don't travel all around the world, and where I do travel, I only need one type of adaptor (and I go there a lot). Consequently, if I lose it, or simply want an extra one, I have to buy another set and double the number of those other adaptors I don't need. I appreciate the quality as compared to the generic versions, but making me buy lots of extra stuff I don't need is a Walgreens approach.
