Can you use the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit in Iran? I want to be able to charge my Macbook. I read somewhere that Iran's voltage is 240 but I purchased the Macbook in the US, any idea if this would work?

    Note that the plug type doesn't affect the voltage

    I suggest you get a generic power adapter and plug your Apple plug into that. A generic adaptor can be used for other things, but the Apple adapter has only one use.

Iran does in fact use 240V and European-type plugs. That kit provides only a wall adapter and your MacBook charger takes care of the voltage conversion, so the answer is yes.

iPhone chargers are also universal, just use the right wall adapter.

  • thanks :P, also what do you need to charge the iphone using this kit?

  • @Tom the phone chargers are universal too, just use the right adapter. Or plug it in the computer :)

    Just make sure it's a charger made by Apple, or some other reputable company. And "original Apple chargers" bought on eBay are often not made by Apple.

The short answer: yes. The longer answer: yes, obviously. :) In particular note the page you linked saying:

The AC plugs included in the World Travel Adapter Kit directly support outlets in North America, Japan, China, United Kingdom

Woohoo 240V!
