Hi all,

I am travelling from the UK to the US next month, taking my macbook. Does anyone know where i can get a US plug for my Magsafe adapter? I know i can just get a UK-US adapter, but taking a US plug would be much neater!!

Cheers

Mike

Powers supplies are £60 - I'd just get an adaptor, or get a US plug with a "figure of eight" style plug on the other end when you get there, if you can.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

I don't want the whole adapter, just the country-specific adapter that plugs into the main body of it.

Any ideas?

Apple sells an international adapter kit that has all the little plugs for a bunch of different countries, but I think it's expensive... if you only want the US plug, maybe look for an American iPod charger on eBay? iPods and MacBooks use the same little plug.

It wouldn't cost hardly anything just to get an adapter why do you want a whole new american charger?
