Various region codes and plugs can often cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. This guide has been specifically written to stop visitors needing to worry if they can power the iPad Air abroad.If you are visiting Guyana these useful instructions show powering your iPad Air using the standard types G, A, B or D Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz plug outlets. When visiting Guyana from another country please ensure the iPad Air can accept a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the iPad Air is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from being damaged during charging.
