    I found this plug adapter, pictured below. It says 250V on it.

    Any idea if this will work with a MacBook brick in the Czech Republic? In case it helps, I think they use the same plugs as France.

    If that's the plug used in the Czech Republic, just plug your current adapter in and it will work!

    That's part of my question. I found the plug lying around. I think it had been used in France, but am not positive. (I guess France uses the same plugs as Czech.)

    It looks kinda like the Czech plug, but I'd like to be sure...

    I believe most of Continental Europe uses the same plug/mains voltage. In any case, I'm using my US MBP in Europe with no issue. Apple machines convert the voltage/frequencies so you don't have to worry about it.

    All of mainland Europe - east and west, and the area of the former Soviet Union - uses the same adaptors. If it worked in France, it'll work in the Czech Republic.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure it was used in France... just pretty sure. So it looks right?

    Judging by the pic below of the Apple travel kit, it seems to be the right general shape.

    The adaptor in the original post, and the top right hand one in the travel pack picture, both appear from the photos, to have the same conformation. They are what should work in France, Czech Republic, in other words Europe east and west, and are what I am using at present in the Caucuses.
    Cheers
