Charging the iPad Mini in Togo

How to connect a Togolese power outlet to the iPad Mini

Togolese power outlet

Different combinations of voltages and standards can all be confusing when planning on visiting a new country if you've never been there before. This page contains step-by-step instructions showing exactly what you'll need to charge the iPad Mini when you are visiting Togo using their standard 220 volt 50Hz Type C plug outlet, with the Togolese using a Europlug for wall outlets. If travelling to Togo from a different country ensure that the iPad Mini can be used with a 240v supply. If the iPad Mini was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v ensure that the device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged when powering up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Mini.
