    I live in the UK, but I bought my 13inch rMBP whilst in the US recently. So obviously it comes with the US power adaptor and so I have to use a converter to be able to plug it in to UK electricity mains.

    The MBP seems to charge quickly enough and the battery life seems fine, but I was wondering if anyone here would know whether using this set up indefinitely would negatively affect my battery life?

    It's a universal adaptor that works anywhere around the world be it 110v through to 240v.

    You can purchase a new adaptor (plug bit) on the apple store.

    Thanks. No way am I buying an Apple US to UK plug adaptor. I bought one in the airport in Vegas for about 1/5 of the price!

    I've got one (the small bit and the extension cord) I don't need if you want it then PM me and just pay the shipping fee from Sweden or we can swap even steven. I purchased an International keyboard and it came with the UK bits and pieces. I'll be headed back to the US so don't need them.
