Is a US iPod compatable with European elecrical voltage?

jluppino

I’m about to head out to Europe and will spending time both on the continent and in Wales. Obviously I will at least need a European and British AC adapters because of the different plug configurations, but is the iPod itself compatible with European voltages, or would a voltage converter also be required? My iPod is a 4th gen iPod Shuffle.

It should be fine without a converter. Just get a travel adapter that has multiple plugs and rock on. You can pick one up for about $40.  http://www.powermax.com/parts/show/app-mb974zm__b
