In the world of mobility, the gadget lovers tend to move around with their devices. The high-end devices are needed for work, for fun and they must have tools to help the traveler explore new places and adapt to them with dedicated apps. That’s why, for instance, map apps for iPhone are in such a big demand. When the devices need recharging, some problems are bound to appear. Many people thought that Apple didn’t care about this and that iPhone/iPod/iPad users are left without a solution.
Did You Know Apple Has a Travel Adapter Kit?
Actually, it’s been lying there for quite a while now and, if you didn’t spot it untill now, here’s a reminder. In order to ease the life of people who like to move around various parts of the world, you should know that Apple did come out with the World Travel Adapter Kit. And I might say it’s got quite good specifications and it works for a large array of Apple products. The package includes a:
- USB power adapter
- USB cable
- Set of six AC plugs
The compatibility expands to all the Apple mobile devices, which is all the iPhone models, twenty versions of iPods and of course all three iPad generations. The World Travel Adapter Kit also works with the devices from below. Also, check the picture.
- Apple MagSafe Power Adapters, designed for MacBook and MacBook Pro
- Portable Power Adapters for iBook and PowerBook
- AirPort Expres (for pluging your power adapter into most electrical outlets around the world)
I still fail to understand why there isn’t an universal standard for outlets, sockets and plugs all over the world. You will be surprised by how big is the history behind these apparently small elements in your lives. If, on a sunny weekend you don’t have any entertaining activities, why not check this interesting article about power plugs and sockets. At least, at the end of the day, you will be able to understand the big conundrum surrounding this socket diversity across the globe.
Travel Adapter Kit for Almost All Apple Products
If travelling across the world is your most preferred activity and you are also an Apple devotee, then you will find this world travel adapter kit a very helpful utensil. The exploring Apple fan needs to know that the kit supports outlets from:
- North America
- United Kingdom
- Continental Europe
- Hong Kong.
The World Travel Adapter Kit is available in Apple Store and it comes with the price tag of $39. You could get a cheaper one on Amazon, but it won’t be new. Most of the users who bought the World Travel Adapter Kit are happy with the purchase, judging by the 4.5 rating out of 5 that the device has. One problem occurred, however, as the plugs are not labeled and changing between six versions might be confusing, so you’ll have to label them yourself.
Particularly, if we consider that the plugs from Korea and Europe are rather similar. The majority of users do appreciate the set of recharging solutions as the kit is far less expensive than buying the individual adapters. Besides, the design is sleek and minimalist, following the good Apple tradition.[via SoftPedia]
