    Have no idea what the new Macbooks power adapter looks like and if it can receive a duck head adapter. :confused:

    According to this article -
    The Apple 29W USB-C power adapter and USB-C Charge Cable is made of two pieces: a charging cable and an adapter with a removable duckhead.
    Here's a picture... http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJ262LL/A/apple-29w-usb-c-power-adapter?fnode=51
    That shows the adapter with the duckhead in place. If you buy the adapter separately, it does NOT come with any cable. The Charge Cable would be an additional purchase, in the event you want a spare power adapter for a MacBook.

    Thanx DeltaMac i guess the question then is, if the charger comes with a Europlug adapter or something different!

    If you're in a europlug-using country, it comes with it . If you're in the UK, it comes with a UK plug, etc. ;)

    Not the question but: All apple adapters car swap the plug, which means if you have a ipad charger with the euro plug, and you get a UK plug because you bought your macbook adapter in UK, you'll be able to use the plug head from the ipad adapter.

    Isnt it true that the only way to get the plug of your choice is through ebay, cause Apple doesn't sell them, correct?

    ?
    The MacBook comes with the adapter, and the duckhead is included.
    Duckheads for some other countries are already going to be almost as bulky as the adapter (bigger pins which don't fold) depending on the country.
    I guess you are looking for an additional one for another country?
    If you need a duckhead for a different country, you can also buy it while in that country - or just use a standard adapter plug to keep with you as you travel... :D The fitted duckhead doesn't work better than adding a generic adapter. Just neater (but not much neater in many countries. :D )

    You didn't say which one you need. Here's an EU duckhead for 25 cents (well, plus $5 shipping :D)

    Wow, what a great idea. I've been carrying a pile of plug adapters around Europe for years, often leaving them behind in hotels and apartments. This is so much simpler (slaps forehead).

    Great! 5 bucks from newegg.com through that link, eh? Or, you can search for one directly from europe, whatever shopping service you use in Aus, just in case Newegg doesn't ship to AU...
