Charging iPhone Internationally
So, I'm vacationing to Sydney, Australia next month. I'm wondering if I'll need a voltage converter to charge my American iPhone 3G, or if I can get away with just an outlet adapter.
I was able to use my U.S. MacBook without a voltage converter in the U.K., as it detects voltage and adjusts accordingly. Does the iPhone do the same thing?
I plan to use it in wifi mode while I'm there to catch up with work emails, and really don't want to fry it in the process.

+1 to above. You just need the outlet adapter. A really simple check for any electronic device is to check the plug/power brick/ adapter. If it is "international" it will have a label on it that lists the "input" as 110-240. That means it (the power adapter/brick/plug) does the transforming on its own. You will only need an adapter to deal with the difference in the plug designs.
Another thing to consider is that most larger chain style motels have rooms with multiple input outlets in the rooms. It looks like a spaghetti mess, but it will fit. This saves you from dragging along all the different types of adapters you might need.
Have fun and safe travels!
Oh, final thought. Apple sells a nifty international kit that allows you to pop off the plug type on the laptop power bricks and early ipod power bricks. I grabbed one of these a few years back and they work great!!
