Yes all you need is a plug adapter to convert tothe correct plug style. You can either use the worldtravel set from Apple or by just a plug adapter thatthe MagSafe will plug into. I concur with the previousposter, it works just fine on 220v as long as you have aconverter plug for the electric outlet.

In this way, is a MacBook Air Dual Voltage?

Answer: A: Answer: A: The AC adapter can operate oneither 110 volt or 220 volt systems and switchesautomatically.

Subsequently, question is, are Apple products compatible with 220 volts? Apple's iPhone power adapter takes AC input thatis between 100 Volt (The U.S. is typically 110 Volt)and 240 (Europe is typically 220 Volt) and lets out a niceregular stream of 5 or 10-volt power for the iPhone. So aslong as you have a plug adapter, Apple has you covered forthe voltage.

Similarly, you may ask, do I need a voltage converter for my MacBook?

A voltage converter not necessary, your MBP willwork just fine with a plug adapter. MBP's are designed tohandle Line voltage: 100V to 240V AC. A good battery backupwith stabilizer may be a good idea particularly if the area you aregoing to does not have stable power.

Do Apple products need power converters?

No, you don't need a converter, youneed an adapter. If your equipment has a transformer,as all Smart Phones, Computers, and tablets have, you don'tneed a converter - the voltage is converted by thetransformer. European Voltage is usually 220, and the US is 110. Sothings without a transformer need aconverter.
