    Hey guys, I currently live in Canada and I'm going to Austria and Czech Republic for about 10 days. I have an iPhone 6s. I was wondering, does anyone know what the specs are for the adapter I need? And where can I buy a good adapter? Thanks

    You need the wall adaptor that has two cylindrical prongs, 220-240 volts. I found a link saying you might need "WA-9 Travel Plug Adapter for Europe". Also has an option to buy and more info. Here's the link: WA-9 Travel Plug Adapter for Europe (Type F CEE 7/7 Schuko) [WA-9] : Adaptelec, International Electrical Specialists

    So i answered this (or tried to) but it didn't seem to post so I'm gonna reiterate what I posted. I think you need a WA-9 travel plug adaptor for Europe, Type F. (It might be a different one in Czech Republic). You could probably find adaptors in the airport. I found that travel plug and a lot of different travel plug info at adaptelec (website) but I don't know if they're reliable.

    The actual Apple charger is fine in Europe if you get a plug adapter for it. Apple actually sells a set of adapters that you can use to replace the part that plugs into the wall. Apple World Travel Adapter Kit - Apple

    You need the type C adapter. See also this: IEC - World Plugs: Plug Type C

    I used an adapter in the Czech Republic (and on a river cruise boat that went through Austria) and it was fine.

    You can probably find something cheaper. (I ended up bringing this so I could charge several things at once: http://www.amazon.com/Yubi-Power-Uni...mUvbUpU2718696 )

    Thank you for the replies. Unfortunately, I'm still not sure what to buy since you 2 gave me different answers. Also, a friend of mine from Europe claims that neither of those are what he used in his country (Romania)

    I can tell you that the two prong adapter I linked (and the one that comes in the apple kit) worked in the Czech Republic where I stayed (in Prague) 18 months ago. And on the boat that floated from Hungary to Germany through Austria... And the apple kit worked in Italy in 2008.

    Looks like you need a simple adapter like this one

    Also check the specs on your apple adapter, mine supports multiple voltages

    Sorry about the confusion! I found the type f adapter from this website : Electrical Plug/Outlet and Voltage Information for Austria (Republik sterreich) : Adaptelec, International Electrical Specialists which has info on Austria's electrical plug/outlets. This webpage gives you a lot more info than just a product to buy. I think you should check it out it might help you decide. Also that website has info on other country's outlets if you search the country in the website provided search bar.

    Thank you but it seems that the type F doesn't work in Czech Republic from what I read. Thoughts ?

    Just an update: I went out to a local store and bought a part that they said would work (and looked like the type-c). Only problem is I don't seem to know how to use it. I thought you'd just plug the charger into the back but that doesn't work. Anyone know what's up?

    I recommend buying an authentic Apple product. Apple makes it so easy to walk into their store and get a replacement if your current item is faulty. Buying from a site online, you'll have to mail it back and wait for them to mail you a new one.
