Complicated combinations of voltages and plug types can all be daunting when planning on staying in a different country, especially for the first time traveller. These step by step instructions will show how to power your iPad 4 when you're visiting Guyana by using their types G, A, B or D 220 volt 60Hz power outlets. You'll discover that power sockets will vary depending on which country you are visiting therefore we suggest reading the World power supplies page for a full list of countries. When you are visiting Guyana from another country please check your iPad 4 can be charged using a 240v supply. If your iPad 4 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. If you're planning on taking a trip to a destination like Georgetown or Linden read the Guyanese Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth details on travelling to the location. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPad 4 in Guyana?

If travelling to multiple countries and bringing more than just your iPad 4 then the best international travel charger for Guyana to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are four types of power outlets in Guyana (G, A, B and D) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types A and G.

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world simply by changing the included plugs over. If your iPad 4 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times with one of these USB travel chargers along with support for more power hungry devices. This will allow you to recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring individual power adapters on your Guyanese trip or using up additional wall outlets. Because you are only packing a single USB travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Because of their flexibility these types of power chargers can be used when back at home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple phones and tablets using only a single power outlet.

If you travel to different continents we suggest buying this type of versatile travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer - the power adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
