    Awesome

    • Written by Patricia R from Tucson

    These are adapters but I might add very well made!! Like the fact they have a picture of each adapter and what country they are for. I had a cheap set of adapters but troubled me they looked so cheap so went to apple web site to find these!! Great buy and like they have alot of countries included. Some have complained they wanted to buy just 1 adapter for wherever they were going but I like the fact I have them all and don't have to mess around each time I travel. You spend a small fortune for electronics so 29.00 for these isn't really bad and they are well boxed for easy carrying. Highly recommend...

    Still your best choice

    • Written by Robert H L from Key Biscayne

    I understand the frustration that some reviewers have, it is just that their complaints are misdirected. These adapters are very rugged, and I have used the original for years without a single failure - cannot say that about the other brands that fail within a year.

    I purchased my first kit in 2012 when the third-generation iPad came out. It did in fact come with a charger, and a 30-pin to UBS connector which was used up until the iPhone 4s. The other old-kit difference was the lack of a Brazilian Type-N plug - but the Type-C substitutes for it nicely.

    READ CAREFULLY - the new kit is strictly an ADAPTER kit, no charger or cable. And a good one at that.

    Also be warned - there are places in the world where none of these plugs will work, even the universal Type-C "Europlug". Italy is the perfect example with three common standards, only one of which will work with the Europlug included with the kit.

    It also might help if I explained how the Type-C Europlug works - you will have problems the first time you use one. It was designed to fit 4.8, 4.5 and 4.0 mm pin size sockets in Continental Europe. It will not fit the 5.0 mm sockets still found in parts of Italy. The Europlug has 4 mm pins. To fit the larger pin sized sockets, its pins are non-parallel, the base being 18.6 mm apart and the tips 17.5 mm. The pins are designed to be slightly flexible so they can "spread" apart and grip the sockets, especially the 4.8 and 4.5 mm ones. A cheap plug will not have enough "spring" and flexibility - they are hard to plug in and the cheap metal used will fail within a short period of time. A well-built Type-C plug such as comes with this kit will last forever, and can be used in Brazil and South Korea as well.

    I am an international airline pilot, so this kit is well used. Never had a problem. Wish I could say that about some of the other adapters that I was seduced into trying.

    Should be able to buy separately

    • Written by Beverly K from Honolulu

    I can't give any lower than 5 because they are quality safe plugs for the locations they listed. My only complaint is that you should be able to buy only the plugs based on where you plan to visit. Why can't you just buy them separately? Thats all I wanted to say. I have plugs that I'll never use or know anyone I could give them to anyone who could use them. Maybe start a website just to swap out with each other. Just venting... C'mon Apple....

    Good product

    • Written by Conor M from Lewes

    I have used these adapters with my MBP on trips to Chile, Australia, Singapore and Europe over the last two years. They work well and I would not wish to be without them. All in a neat little box that fits in my carryon without a problem.

    12 years of use and still great

    • Written by Brandon G from Acton

    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!

    • Written by Kendra N from Williston

    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

    • Written by BRANDY S from Minneapolis

    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!

    Excellent quality, feels safer

    • Written by Declan M from Omaha

    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.

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

    • Written by Alberto A from South Miami

    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

    • Written by Michael J from Newport Beach

    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.

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

    • Written by Sherrill M from Benicia

    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.
