Differing combinations of voltages and plugs can all be daunting when planning to stay in a foreign country if you've never visited before. These instructions were written to assist visitors wanting to charge their iPad 4 when they're going to Honduras.If you are staying in Honduras the following instructions show charging your iPad 4 using their standard Type B or A Honduran 110 volt 60Hz wall outlets, you'll discover most Hondurans will normally use Type B sockets in their power outlets. When travelling anywhere you'll find that most power supplies are different depending on which region you're taking a trip to therefore we suggest that you read the WikiConnections global power connections list where you'll find a complete list of powering devices in different destinations. If your iPad 4 charges slowly or does not power up when visiting Honduras from another region please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Electrical devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, check your device is dual voltage (usually marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to ensure proper use. If you are planning on travelling to a city such as Tegucigalpa or San Pedro Sula refer to the wikipedia.org page about Honduras [1] for further information on visiting the area.
