How to Use a MacBook With Electricity When Overseas

Save

The Apple MacBook laptop gets power from its rechargeable battery or from house current through the included MagSafe power adapter, which is designed to plug into U.S. electrical outlets. As the MagSafe power adapter automatically switches voltage to the proper current of either 110 volts or 220 volts AC, you won't need a transformer to operate it from an overseas power source. However, you'll need to use an adapter kit, which comes with plug adapters for various countries and regions throughout the world, including Continental Europe, the United Kingdom, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korean, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

Things You'll Need

  • Apple World Travel adapter kit
  • Apple MagSafe power adapter
  • Plug one end of the MacBook's MagSafe power adapter into the MagSafe power adapter port on the left side of the MacBook.

  • Plug the other end of the MagSafe power adapter into the slot on the back of the Apple World Travel adapter kit's power adapter.

  • Connect a plug adapter for the region you are located to the front of the World Travel adapter kit's power adapter. Consult the Apple World Travel adapter kit's user guide to view pictures of each plug adapter and what country or region it works with. The UK/Hong Kong/Singapore plug adapter has three prongs, the Australia/New Zealand plug adapter has two flat angled blades, the China plug adapter has two parallel blades without holes, the North America/Japan plug adapter has two parallel blades with holes, the Korean plug adapter has two round thick pins, and the Continental Europe plug adapter has two round thin pins.

  • Insert the electrical prongs or blades of the connected plug adapter into the electrical outlet to supply power to your MacBook and recharge its battery.
