What is the best power adapter for the iPad Mini 4 in Bangladesh?

If you are travelling with more than your iPad Mini 4 then the best travel charger for Bangladesh to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. There are four standards of plug sockets in Bangladesh (G, C, D and K) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your type of iPad Mini 4 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times with one of these types of travel adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a four port adapter means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to bring individual power adapters or occupying additional wall outlets.
