    ??
    or in other words from F-type to A-type.

    Actually the question is do i need to have a voltage converter with a macbook?

    The power adapter for laptops will handle 110v - 240v. So all you need is the plug adapter.


    EDIT: Skunk is correct. 100v - 240v

    No the transformer is rated from 110V to 240V (60Hz to 50 Hz) so all the World's voltages are accepted.

    same holds for all other chargers (telephone/battery/etc). Check if it states 110-240V and than you are able to use them in the US.
