Varying complicated voltages and region codes can often lead to confusion when planning on visiting a different country, especially if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used in the world this guide tells you exactly what to buy in advance to charge the iPad Mini 2 . If visiting Guyana this page contains useful instructions showing you how to supply power to your iPad Mini 2 by using the Type G, A, B or D Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz plug outlets. Most power sockets will change regionally therefore please read our Wiki Connections travel power connections page where you'll find a full list showing powering devices in different countries. When you are visiting Guyana from another region please check that your iPad Mini 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check that your iPad Mini 2 is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from overloading when charging it. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Mini 2.

When travelling with more than your iPad Mini 2 then the best travel adapter for Guyana to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are four types of power outlets in Guyana (types G, A, B and D) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and G. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries around the world just by changing the plugs over.
