    no need for a power converter. All Apple power supplies are multivoltage. Just order the "Travel-Adapter Pack" from Apple......or if you want it cheap, then just get the Braun-Cable....

    Or be a big shot and spend $3.00 for an adapter plug from Amazon!

    The standard Apple charger is rated for European 220-230V, so you just need a plug adapter.

    I find travel adapters often have short lives - cheaply built but sold at a premium. I would buy one that looks to be solidly built, rather than one that claims to support a hundred countries.
