Hey,

I just came back from France a couple of months ago. I belive that your ipod will work...but just to be on the safe side, check the manual that came with the ipod. It might say something like 110-240V range. which means that all you need to do is to buy an adapter to get the plug to fit into the round european plug. Otherwise, you might have to buy a converter to convert the 240V (europe) to 120V (NA).

Hope that helps.

One of the nice things about the iPod and Apple power packs in general is that they are designed for world-applications. Apple sells a travel pack of adapters for their proprietary wall warts...

The US-base apple.com website sells these: http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebO...nplm=M8794G%2FB

and they look like this:



You slide the local (in yours and in my case, the 110v adapter) off and slide in the local adapter. Really simple, and no big bulky additional transformers.
