With only a handful of different types of common standards used in the world this guide shows exactly what to buy in advance to charge your iPad Mini in Myanmar. These instructions were written to prevent you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge your iPad Mini when you are staying abroad.This page has useful instructions showing exactly how to power the iPad Mini when you are visiting Myanmar by using the G, C, D or F type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Most power sockets will vary from region to region therefore we suggest that you read our Wiki Connections world power connections list where you'll find a complete list of powering devices in different destinations. If you are travelling to Myanmar from a different region check your iPad Mini can be used with a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure the iPad Mini is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overheating when charging it.

What is the best power charger for the iPad Mini in Myanmar?

If travelling to multiple countries or bringing along more than just your iPad Mini the best travel charger for Myanmar is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are four different standards of power outlets in Myanmar (types G, C, D and F) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by switching the plugs. If your iPad Mini supports Fast Charge (please note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers plus support for certain power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a 4 port charger means you can power multiple devices simultaneously without needing to buy individual travel adapters on your trip to Myanmar. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight travel charger will keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without using up an additional power outlet.
