Varying different voltages and sockets can often lead to confusion when planning to travel to another country if you've never visited before. When you're staying in Saint Lucia the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the iPad 4 by using a 240 volt 50Hz Type G power outlet, with the St Lucians using 13 amp plugs for power outlets. If you are visiting Saint Lucia from another region please check the iPad 4 can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the iPad 4 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.
