US iPad charger - is it multi voltage or do you need a step down converter in the UK?

As title really

Anyone with a US iPad in the UK

Do you just need a US to UK adapter?

Must chargers are multi voltage these days so I would guess the iPad is?

I have just stuck the uk plug that came with my MacBook air on the us adaptor and it's working fine. Hope that helps.

My iPhone charger has one of those plugs that snaps off the little main unit, so if I just snap the British plug onto the charger that comes with my US iPad, it'll work okay? (sorry for asking something that might have been answered - I'm not a techie!)

Your MBP should have come with both a plug on its own and a plug with a two meter cable. You just slide it off sideways off the charger block.

Getting mine, flights permitting on sunday.

I don't have any previous Apple products with a detachable plug.
Am i able to use a standard converter?

All of Apple's power connectors are universal. All you need is the World Traveler connector kit. It will work fine.
