    PowerBook power cable querey
    Is it possible to purchase a UK power supply unit for the PowerBook? I have looked on the Apple store page for the UK and I have not been able to find such a part. Any information in regards to this would be greatly be appreciated.


    N.B. Europe and UK wall sockets greatly differ so I am looking for a non-US and a non-Euro power supply unit for a PowerBook.

    As I found the answer to this I thought I might as well let others know whom may have also gone to the US from the UK to abuse the strong pound.

    Now that you bought your Apple at a great discount due to the exchange rate you are now stuck with American leads. Not to worry as you can buy for 35 inc VAT an Apple travel kit. The travel kit provides all the leads that you will need to connect your Apple to the wall. Including adapters to plug your PSU straight into the wall.

    I got my PB from the US. I got an adaptor from WHSmith at the airport for, like, 6 quid. I plug the power supply into that adaptor and it plugs into any UK socket. Just six quid and no problemo at all.

    But for 29 more you could connect your PowerBook to an electical socket somewhere in Lithuania! :p

    Agreed. But I don't intend to use it anywhere apart from US/UK. I am in Dubai right now and it works here too. It all comes down to where a person would be using the computer. I doubt whether I'll travel to Lithuania anytime soon, so I guess I'll just save those 29 pounds

    Further - If another EU adapter is needed, thats another 6 pounds. Thats a grand total of 12 pounds versus 35 :rolleyes:

    It should be www.apple.com/uk not .uk, some company owns that website name.
