    I am going on vacagtion and thinking of taking my iPhone (locked in airplane mode to use as an iPod). Anywho, can I plug the charger with an adapter straight into the grid (in Europe and in Egypt) or do I need to get a stepdown voltage converter too?

    Anyone know?

    The iPhone USB charger adapter has an input range of 100-240VAC. So, yes, all you'll need to do is adapt the prongs for the region you're in.

    I'm pretty sure all Apple products are 100% universal for voltage. Just need the adapters.

    I bought a plug converter from local apple store that had a USB port on it for my trip to Germany. Worked just fine.

    He's going to two different parts of the world. He'll need a set of prong adapters

    Never understand why plugs aren't standardized around the globe.
