If planning a vacation it is helpful to know in advance if you'll be able to power all your vital devices like cell phones or tablets that you'll be bringing along with you. By not knowing which plug socket is being used you are more likely to bring the wrong adaptor, therefore needing to buy or borrow a suitable power adaptor when you're there that might be incompatible and cause damage to your iPad Mini 2. Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to a new country especially to the first time traveller. When you are planning a holiday to Dominica this page contains useful instructions showing charging the iPad Mini 2 by using their standard Type G or D Dominicand 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, most Dominicansd typically use Type G plugs in their wall outlets. If you are visiting Dominica from another region make sure your iPad Mini 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPad Mini 2 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts double check the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overheating during charging. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Mini 2.
