    Hi

    I'm buying a Macbook (new one :D) in US and live en EU.

    I was wondering if I could use my adapter from my iPod to my Macbook charger?

    That should'nt be a problem, right?

    Do you mean the duckend connector (the bit that plugs into the square power brick)? The answer, is yes, unless you are trying to use a grounded plug, which will not work on the iPod's brick.

    yeah, the psu handles a range of voltages so don't worry about that. Just make sure the plug fits your socket and you're good to go

    Thanks! It does 'cause I live in EU, so that should'nt be a problem. Thanks again. Apple's also looks better than does big, bulky "travel kit plug for 4 coutries" :cool:

    Yes. Just make sure it is the EU one, not the Korean One (they are similar, but the prongs are slightly larger on the Korean one. That reminds me that I have several of these adapters at home that I'm not using.

    On the website it says that its for the german-plugs which are similar to the ones in Denmark.

    But, just, worst case senario, I'll find out if it does'nt work, right? - Like; it does'nt fit the socket or so, right?:confused:
