    Good Product

    Its a good adapter but it does not have a USB port and I struggled with that while travelling, but thankfully I had my Macbook which had a USB port to charge my phone.

    This kit is problematic

    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!!

    Don't complain if you don't read or understand a product's description!

    Good grief people! Pay attention before you buy! Those of you who complain on here because you were expecting a plug with the kit when the pictures clearly show only adapters ... really! Those complaining that it only works with the "larger plug" ... when the description clearly describes the plugs the adapters fit on ... really! This is a great product for those of us who travel to multiple countries and have the convenience with this kit to swap out the prongs on the "big plug" instead of using an add-on device. For those that complain that they had to buy the whole kit for 1 plug .... really! If you are only going to one country, you should just go buy a single adapter plug of which there are dozens out there that add to the end of the plug. For those of you who complain that they can't read gray print on a white background ... I do kind of agree that the letters could be more visible in black, but since all of apple details on their plugs and other media is gray on white, this product labeling is nothing new with Apple. I just never understand why people come on here and bash a product because of their mistake by not paying attention to the details before they buy.

    A very useful kit

    The kit contains seven adapters for practically all popular plug standards in the world and it's modularity is extremely useful.
    I'd only wish there was a 50 EUR/40 GBP set of those adapters together with a cable and a 10-12 W charger, so that this indeed would be a kit that you can do something with.

    DO NOT PURCHASE

    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.

    Great for global travel

    Nice sturdy chargers but it's not obvious you need to buy the additional charger block (the bit that holds the USB) on top of this box. As the other reviewer said, a pouch to hold all the parts would be helpful, but I am overall very pleased with the set. The countries that the charger is to be used in, is marked in tiny writing on each of the Chargers so there's no doubt which one should be packed.

    I'd have also paid extra to have the UK folding pins plug included in this set, as would be more helpful for travel for me.

    Great Kit

    This is a well made kit with a good global selection of plugs, all made to high standards.

    Now without cable (as we all have them already anyway!).

    To make this kit even better I think they should include a car adapter (or at least make one seperate!) and also a carrying bag (a simple drawstring bag would be fine).

    This kit is now £25 instead of £35 but including the extras would have made it 5 stars!!!

    Need several of 1 particular adapter for various Apple devices

    I have several Apple devices to travel with me (iphone, ipad, airport express, macbook air, etc.), and I usually go to 1 or 2 specific country for leisure and business. This kit is a great package but it is not sufficient when we need several of one for use in a particular destination, unless we buy several of this kit. Then, the rest would become a waste. So, I wish Apple could also sell the adapters individually, or even 3 in 1 package.
