    Im about to get an iPad Air that comes with an English power charger. I want to use this in my country but don't want to get an 3pin to two pin (euro plug) adapter cause its gonna look awful and its gonna be big. I wanted to get the small part that changes and one can plug in the charger different sockets! Are those parts available?

    Take your chances with eBay? Apple don't sell them separately retail.

    Can someone post a picture of how does the iPadAir charger looks like? (Just to make sure im looking for the right thing!)
    From what i can figure out, it must be the same as the charger used for an apple laptop. If im right then im looking for a socket like the one attached. But how is that socket called so i can look for it in ebay?

    That means: Apple calls that item a duckhead adapter. That's what you search for.
    And, you would search for the proper adapter for your country, whatever that is.
    example: duckhead adapter

    That means you type "duckhead adapter" in the search field in eBay. You might want to add your country since duckhead is generic and not for a specific country.
