Various region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country if you've never visited before. These instructions were written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge the iPad when you're visiting abroad.This page is a step-by-step guide showing you what you'll need to charge your iPad when you are in Herzegovina by using the standard Type F or C Herzegovinian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power supplies differ from region to region so please read the Wiki Connections global power connections list for a full list showing countries. If travelling to Herzegovina from another country please ensure the iPad can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPad originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts ensure the iPad is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it. If you are planning to stay at a Herzegovinian destination like Dubrovnik please read the Herzegovinian Wikipedia page [1] for more information on visiting the area. This page details the original iPad first generation, visit the Apple category page for the latest range of Apple iPads. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 5 or greater on the iPad.
