Various combinations of standards and plug types can often cause confusion when planning to travel to another country if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used in the world this article shows exactly what you'll need in advance to charge the iPad 3 . This step by step guide will show you exactly what you'll need to supply power to the iPad 3 when you are visiting Solomon Islands using the standard G or I type Solomon Islands 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If visiting Solomon Islands from a different country please make sure your iPad 3 can be charged using a 240 volt supply.
