Varying different region codes and sockets can all be daunting when planning on staying in a new country if you've never been there before. The following step by step guide shows you how to charge your iPad 4 when you are travelling to Falkland Islands using a standard 240 volt 50Hz Type G power outlet, with the Falkland Islanders using a 13 amp plug for wall outlets. If travelling to Falkland Islands from another region check that the iPad 4 can accept a 240v supply. If your iPad 4 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) double check the iPad 4 is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.
