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 – blackbird Aug 10 '16 at 18:13

    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. – robert Aug 10 '16 at 20:08

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 Aug 10 '16 at 18:40
  • @Tom the phone chargers are universal too, just use the right adapter. Or plug it in the computer :) – blackbird Aug 10 '16 at 18:50

    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. – gnasher729 Aug 11 '16 at 9:10
  • Note that the real voltage is 220V! – azerafati Aug 13 '16 at 6:06

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!
