    Voltage conversion on notebook
    I just bought a macbook air and Im planning on taking it with me to europe. I have bought the pin conversion adapters (so I can plug in the charger to the wall) but will I also need to buy a voltage converter?

    I understand everywhere in europe runs on 220v/50 Hz, and in North america we run 110 V / 60 Hz? will this affect my battery if Im going to be using it over a six month period?

    thanks guys

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    I think you mean 220-240V.
    All you need is the European plug adapter, as the charger supports both 110V and 220-240V.

    You may also want a surge protector.

    I agree with 6string.
    I bought my MBP in the U.S. and had used it overseas without a transformer for almost 3 years. Never had any problems.
