    Does anyone know what power adapter I will need for a trip to south africa with my iBook? I have the travel kit but it doesn't come with one, also the guidebook I have says they run on 220/230 volts AC 50 Hz, is that going to cause me problems? thanks

    Hi

    I purchased my pbook in NYC, and I live in SA.
    Your current power adapter should work just fine.
    You will only need an adapter to fit our sockets, and those you can buy here very cheaply.
    The plug sockets in SA are huuuge, probably designed in the dark ages, so you don't want to have to carry the adapter around with you.
    Buy the adapter here and toss it when you're done.

    As far as i am aware all Apple laptop power adaptors work anywhere in the world.

    All you need is the prong that slides out of the brick itself. OR you could go with the guy above, and go powerbook>power brick(with regular 120 ac clip)>SOuthafrican 120to 220 adapter. That was is MUCH easier. Thats How I did it in europe. They have them at the airport, usually going each way.
