I had to run to the Apple store yesterday to pick up iLife ’08, and while I was trying to be noticed by an apple store helper (this was one of those stores without a register counter at all, you get rung up where ever are), I saw the Apple International Power Adapter set. While I’ve already got a really handy little multi-prong doo-dad, I figured, well I need to charge more than one thing at a time usually. Plus in thinking of 360|Flex Europe, I’d have my MacBook Pro with me, and having a not small adapter to worry about would suck. So…..
I picked this up. It’s pretty clever and makes the Apple power brick even more useful. I usually carry the long cord, and the plug only nubbin with me, so now, based on the country I’ll be visiting, I just need to carry one more plug only nubbin.
The box comes with a total of 6 adapters, 2 more US plug only nubbins, then the standard assortment of Europe, Asia, Australia, and the UK.
I’m sure there are plenty of cheaper alternatives, but I’m a nut for OEM, gear that looks like the rest of my stuff.
This also works well since I have a trip to Japan coming up, so now I’ll be charging my blackberry and my laptop at the same time.
