    Check your adaptor for your devices. Now the adaptors are made so that you can use them anywhere. The adaptor should say soemthing like 120-240V.

    What is more important is that you know what kind of pin-plug they use.

    Just get an traveller adapter that is meant for Australia/NZ. Voltage is the same.

    Can be 2 or 3 flat pins type. Usually, the adapter's box will indicate the country its meant for.

    Yup, it means u can use your adaptor in NZ. Not sure whether it uses 120V or 240V but in either case, your adaptor can use cos it has the 120-240V range.

    As fo the pins...that one you must wait for the rest of the forum to answer, I don;t know...

    alternatively, you can get one of those traveller adaptors, it has for all teh differnent kinds of pins. It should cost you no more then $30
