    Got a quick question.
    I will be heading overseas to Ireland next week.
    I purchased an Adapter Plug from a luggage store which will allow me to plug in my iPad charger into it.

    Is it that easy? Just plug in my US plug into the adaptor and I am set? Last thing I want to do is get over there and "fry" my iPad!

    The lady at the luggage store said that most electronics now-a-days have the dual circuits built into them so all I needed was an adapter plug.

    Note: this is an adaptor plug, not a voltage converter. It has 2 horizontal plugs and a vertical plug (type D) adapter which states it will work in Ireland.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Yes that should work.

    also you will notice on the ipads powerblock that the part with the two metal prongs can be pulled off and a different plug for another country can be put in its place.

    Apple sells them in what they call the world travel adapter kit for $39

    I don't have mine handy, but if you read the find print on the plug box on the side of the charger, if there is a 110-240V or a 120-240V, it will be fine. The charger will use the appropriate voltage.
