    Hi,

    I ordered my rMBP in the USA so I have the US power adapter. I will be in France so I need Europe plug adapter. Do you have any idea where to get one of those? Can I buy an original Europe plug adapter from Apple?

    Thanks a lot.

    The easiest solution is to purchase the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit either in the US for 39 bucks or in France. It includes all the adapters you would ever need.

    Get it directly from Apple in store or online.

    Currently in Spain...same plug as France. You can get an adapter at the airport or a souvenir shop. I got it at the latter for 6 euros.

    I suggest getting the Apple rechargeable batteries. Their charger use the same removable plug that's on the Mac power supply and it's cheaper than the World travel adapter kit. Plus you get 6 AA rechargeable batteries in bonus.

    Apple's is a ripoff. Get the cheapest option you can find. I got an EU/UK set that snapped together into a cylindrical shape for easy packing for like $8-10 from Best Buy and that lasted my 6 months in Italy and travels through Europe.
