Myanmar power outlet

Varying different frequencies and standards can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. When you are visiting Myanmar these instructions show charging the iPad 4 by using their types G, C, D or F 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. If you are visiting Myanmar from another country make sure the iPad 4 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPad 4 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) make sure your iPad 4 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you intend to stay in a place like Yangon or Mandalay please refer to the Myanmar Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth information. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.

What is the best travel adapter for the iPad 4 in Myanmar?

When travelling to more than one country then the best travel charger for Myanmar to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Myanmas use four different types of power outlets (types G, C, D and F) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your iPad 4 supports Fast Charge (please note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times with one of these types of travel adapters along with compatibility with certain power hungry devices like tablets. This will also allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel adapters for your Myanmar trip. By only packing a single USB travel charger will help keep the overall size down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage while travelling as well as being convenient for recharging your iPad 4 at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when you return home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and smartphones with just a single wall outlet.

We recommend searching for a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer. The travel charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries.
