Different region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on travelling to another country, especially for the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of standards used in the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need in advance to power your iPad Air in Guadeloupe. The following step by step instructions tells you what you'll need to supply power to your iPad Air when you're travelling to Guadeloupe by using their D, C or E type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. When you are travelling to Guadeloupe from another region please ensure the iPad Air can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPad Air originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) make sure that your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when powering up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Air.
