MacMost Now 725: Traveling With US Power Adapters

When taking your US Apple products to Europe, you only need to bring a simple and cheap plug adapter. The power adapters that come with MacBooks, iPads, iPhones and iPods are all universal adapters that work with 100V to 220V. There is no need for an expensive and heavy power converter.

    I always bring a US extension cord. One adapter gives me several places to plug stuff and the extension usually reaches the outlet that is always, even in the US, in a bad place.

    How cool is this, I’m Danish and I live in Randers. Big fan of your show. :) Why are you in Denmark?

      So cool! Small world. I’m in Randers visiting family. My wife’s family lives in and around here. Actually leaving in an hour to take the train down to Paris for the rest of my trip. I’ll have a video from there by the end of the week if all goes well.

    Gary,

    I bought a new Macbook Pro, 13″ model, and I noticed that the power adapter is 65W and my old Macbook Pro, 15″ model, has an 85W power adapter. My question is can I use my old power adapter on my new MacBook Pro and not hurt anything on the computer or battery. Thanks…

      Yes. You can use it.

    Interesting. When inquiring at the local Apple store, they did not seem to be aware of this. It WAS a pressing question for travelers, but I have had no problems using my Apple products in Europe.

      Green screen? That doesn’t explain all the people around me speaking French. :)
