Apple’s World Travel Adapter Kit is Now Available for Just $29
If you travel regularly around the world and are using Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod etc, then Apple has a very useful product for you. The company is selling us an updated version of its World Travel Adapter Kit, which includes seven AC Plugs and Prongs that fit in many electrical sockets across the world.
The new version of this kit no longer has 30-pin to USB cable. Moreover, rather than including a Lightning to USB cable, Apple has decided to not include a cable at all and drop the price by $10.
According to the product description:
The World Travel Adapter Kit includes a set of seven AC plugs with prongs that fit different electrical outlets around the world, each laser-etched with the regions they are compatible with. For world travelers, this is the perfect kit to ensure power connectivity in most countries you may travel to.
Apple’s new World Travel Adapter Kit features seven pieces that’ll work around Japan, North America, United Kingdom, China, Continental Europe, Hong Kong, Australia and Korea. Apple’s new kit can be yours for just $29 if you head down to their official store. However, even at $29 it seems a bit much for charging adapters. Especially when you compare it to the likes of alternative knock-offs you can find over at Amazon or eBay.
Apple’s World Travel Adapter Kit will work with iPad, iPhone and iPods. It is also compatible with “Apple MagSafe and MagSafe 2 Power Adapters (for MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air), 10W and 12W USB Power Adapters, and Portable Power Adapters.”
This new product from Apple is certainly useful but compared to other alternatives, it’s a bit pricey. Still, it’s an official product and it’s always best to use official products with your devices.
