When traveling abroad, one of the most important things to consider is how you will charge your Apple devices. Apple's World Travel Adapter Kit provides the most elegant approach to doing just that.

Power issues can be detrimental to electronic devices and Apple's devices are no exception. Ensuring that your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod has proper power while traveling abroad is essential to the longevity of your battery.

Apple's World Travel Adapter Kit is the perfect precautionary purchase when planning your trip. It is compatible with every Apple MagSafe Power Adapter, including those provided with iPhones, iPad, and iPods. It also works with your AirPort Express, should you choose to bring it along (for Wi-Fi in your hotel, perhaps).

Of course, adapting to the proper power outlet in a foreign country is just part of the issue when powering your devices. Once you've established the proper adapter to use, you should be sure the outlets you are plugging into are up to current power specifications.

Despite your Apple power adapter's built-in 110V-240V transformer, rolling electricity, inconsistent power, electrical spikes, and brown-outs can severely damage your Apple devices. The more remote your location, the more possible it is for these types of problems to occur.
