With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what to pick up in advance to power your iPad Air . These instructions have been specifically written to prepare travellers wanting to power their iPad Air when staying in Togo.When you are planning a holiday to Togo this page contains useful instructions showing charging the iPad Air by using their standard 220 volt 50Hz C Type Togolese power outlet, with the Togolese using Europlugs for charging. When visiting Togo from a different region please check that the iPad Air can accept a 240 volt supply.
