Traveling to the Middle-East question.

1604 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  yo_paully
I'm about to take a month long journey for work to the Middle East I was wondering about what issues I may stumble upon if I were to bring my MBP.

Does anyone have any experience traveling to that region with Apple products from North America. From what I understand there is a difference in electrical standards.

Do I need a power-converter of some sort for the Apple-Powersupply? etc..


P.s.: I know that a few years ago when I traveled there with a PC laptop the powersupply was able to handle the current standard at the time.

As with all Apple power supplies, if you can figure out how to plug the adapter into the outlet, you're fine. A cheap prong converter is easy to find.
Thank you.

Once again Apple is awesome. !!!
We spent 9 weeks in Ethiopia this winter and it's true, we did not need any sort of voltage converter. A simple plug converter was all it took to use my MBP. We did have a wonderful little Kensington Travel Adapter which had a nifty USB charging port on it which was very handy for keeping the iPods juiced.

The Apple Store (Canada) - Apple World Travel Adapter Kit

The World Travel Adapter Kit includes a set of six AC plugs with prongs that fit different electrical outlets around the world. For world travelers, this is the perfect kit to ensure power connectivity in most countries you may travel to. The Kit is designed to work with (and requires) the white portable power adapter that ships with iBook, MacBook, MacBook Pro, and PowerBook G4, and it also works with the iPod USB Power Adapter and iPod FireWire Power Adapter (available separately). The AC plugs included in the World Travel Adapter Kit directly support outlets in North America, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Korea, Australia, and Hong Kong.
That might have all you need.
While in Europe and Africa, I used the same Kensington Travel Adapter (minus the USB add on) with my iBook that Irie Guy suggested - worked great!

You can see a list of countries that this will work in here:
