With only a handful of different types of standards being used in the world this guide tells you exactly what to purchase in advance to power the iPad Air in Grenada. These guidelines were specifically written to prevent people needing to worry if they can charge the iPad Air when travelling abroad.When you're planning a trip to Grenada the following instructions show how to charge the iPad Air using the 230 volt 50Hz G Type Grenadian wall outlet, the Grenadians will use 13 amp plugs for charging. When travelling to Grenada from another region make sure the iPad Air can be used with a 240v supply. If the iPad Air was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure that your device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from overheating when powering up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Air.
