Australia & New Zealand Power
Australia uses 240V AC power with 2- or 3-pronged (earthed) plugs. Most power supplies for computers handle a voltage range of 110-240V so you only require a plug converter (pictured) but PLEASE CHECK YOURS. THIS INFORMATION WILL BE WRITTEN ON THE POWER SUPPLY.
Apple adapter plugs to suit a computer power supply and USB wall-charger for iPods/iPhones/iPads can be converted with the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit interchangeable plugs (pictured).
This mains power plug travel adapter allows European or British plugs to be inserted into American or Australian sockets.
The World Travel Adapter Kit includes a USB power adapter, a USB cable, and 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 iPod, iPhone, Apple MagSafe Power Adapters, Portable Power Adapters, and AirPort Express.
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.
