Differing combinations of voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning on travelling to another country especially if you've never been there before. These guidelines were specifically written to prepare people wanting to charge the iPad Mini 4 when staying in Myanmar.If planning a trip to Myanmar this page contains instructions showing you charging the iPad Mini 4 using the Type G, C, D or F Myanmar 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Most power will change depending on which region you are in so we suggest reading the power supplies and Asia page for a full list of countries. When visiting Myanmar from another region ensure that your iPad Mini 4 can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPad Mini 4 came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 9 or greater on the iPad Mini 4.
