I just bought a MacBook Pro in USA. I will get it home in Greece (220V, 50Hz).

What is the usual thing to do, without having to buy a whole new charger? Maybe I can find only the cable somewhere?


An adapter, like the one suggested should do the trick, but I will have to carry that with me forever. So, I think it makes sense to check if the thing I have circled can be bought (it seems it can be removed (thus if I can buy a European one, Type C, I will be able to insert it there)): enter image description here


You could purchase the "Apple World Travel Adapter Kit" from an Apple Store or from Apple.com before you leave. I do not know if this kit is available overseas (not the US). $39

EDIT #1:

You could also purchase this adapter for only $9. It's much cheaper, and appears to work in Greece. $9

EDIT #2:

If you want just the piece that goes into the existing charger, check out this US to Europe Converter. $5

  • Oh damn, I had to mention that. I don't want that, 30$ isn't worth it, I want to use it only in Greece. – gsamaras Aug 28 '16 at 3:36
  • How about this adapter? It says it works in Greece. $9. – Tiffany Hahn Aug 28 '16 at 3:42
  • I think I found the exact one in RadioShack in Fan Francisco, near Mission St. However, it said 250V and 10/16 A. I think they look alike, I will go and check! Thanks man, probably you can update your answer with that...However, I would be also interested one buying a cable for the charger. However, I don't know how to find it (I mean how it is called)! Picasso woke up within me, check my update! – gsamaras Aug 28 '16 at 3:52
  • Check this out.. Looks like what you're after, for $5. – Tiffany Hahn Aug 28 '16 at 4:13
  • Hurray! You are a genius..However, I would rather walk up in a store and buy it, so if you have some idea let me know...I am in San Francisco! If not, I will look...! :) – gsamaras Aug 28 '16 at 5:34
