First Look: Incipio The Continental Companion Cables for Apple Power Adapters
Designed as an alternative to Apple's international power adapter kit for its own block-style chargers, Incipio's The Continental ($40) offers you a set of four types of wall blades that can transform any iPod or MacBook power adapter into an international travel adapter. Unlike Apple's similar World Travel Adapter Kit, these use cables so that you don't need to block a spare outlet with Apple's power blocks, and you also get a carrying bag for all of the parts. Incipio's Continental set includes only North American, South America, European, UK (3-pin), Japanese, Hong Kong (3-pin), Chinese, Australian, New Zealand, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, and African (3-pin) ready plugs, versus Apple's six, more widely compatible ones. Notably, the set does not include a charger -- you provide this part yourself.
