If you are travelling to Palau the following instructions show charging your iPad Mini 2 using their Type B or A Palauan 120 volt 60Hz plug outlets. If the iPad Mini 2 slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when you are visiting Palau from a different country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) can take longer to charge or won't turn on, check that the iPad Mini 2 is a dual voltage device (normally marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to ensure proper use. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Mini 2.
