Complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning to stay in a new country, especially if you've never been there before. When you are travelling to Denmark these instructions show powering the iPad 4 by using their standard Type K 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, Type K wall outlets are typically used by most Danes. If you are visiting Denmark from another country check that the iPad 4 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPad 4 came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your iPad 4 is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you intend on taking a trip to destinations like Copenhagen or Ostrava please refer to the Denmark Wikipedia page [1] for more indepth information. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.
