Guyanese power outlet

Varying complicated region codes and voltages can all be daunting when planning on visiting another country for the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge the iPad 2 when you are abroad.This page has step-by-step instructions showing how to supply power to the iPad 2 when you are visiting Guyana using the Type G, A, B or D Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Guyana from another region check that the iPad 2 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPad 2 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) make sure that your iPad 2 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it up. If you're planning on taking a trip to a Guyanese place such as Georgetown read the Guyana Wikipedia page [1] for further details. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 2.

What is the best power adapter for the iPad 2 in Guyana?

When travelling with more than just your iPad 2 and visiting multiple countries the best international travel charger for Guyana to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are four standards of wall outlets that Guyanese use (G, A, B and D) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and G. As these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your iPad 2 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these USB power chargers, plus additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets. This will allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel chargers for your Guyanese trip or using up additional power sockets. Only bringing a single international travel charger will also keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand baggage and on hand for recharging your iPad 2 at an airport or on the flight. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when you return home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, phones and e-readers using only a single wall outlet.

For those travelling to Guyana we suggest searching for an adaptable travel charger of this nature at your preferred electronics retailer - the travel charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
