Voltage for UK & Ipads/iPhones

Hello!
You can usually change the front piece on the apple chargers to that particular countries plug-type.
If I have a US unit, will just changing out the plug be ok?

Anywhere to get the different plugs for different countries?
thanks!

All the iPad/iPhone chargers I've seen have one piece "wall warts" but they are 110/240. Accordingly, all you'll need is the correct prong adapter.

iPad, iPhone, most computers will let you use multi voltage. All you need is a plug adapter from twin blade US to whatever's used where you're going. Pretty much all of Europe uses round two-pin style plugs.

I think what the OP means is that the one-piece Apple transformers actually do have a detachable plug piece. Since they are all 100-240 V transformers, yes, all you have to do is get the plug piece for the country you want to use it in.

Just checked my iPad charger - it has a detachable plug piece.

Correct - but whether you swap out the plug piece or use an adaptor, the effect is the same. The unit will be fine, and you do not need a converter, just either the plug piece or an adaptor.
