If the iPad Air 2 slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when you are visiting Bermuda from a different region please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically devices which originated from a different country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check that the iPad Air 2 is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to ensure proper use.
