    Going to india in about a week. I don't know what electricity system they use, or whatever. Will I simply be able to plug the regular power adapter which came with my macbook into a socket there and it will "just work"? ;)


    also, I am traveling via british airways...do they have AC power sockets on board?

    The MacBook's power brick will accept 110-240v, so you should be fine. I'd suspect you'll need a plug adaptor, however.

    None of BA's long-haul aircraft have power options available in world traveler class. An adaptor would be pointless as you'd have nothing to plug it into unless you're traveling in a higher class.

    You won't need a voltage converter, but you'll need a plug adaptor to convert the US prongs to the Indian configuration.
