Differing combinations of frequencies and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning to stay in another country if you've never been there before. However this isn't as complex as it appears, with only a handful of different types of common standards being used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what you'll need to buy in advance to charge your iPad 2 . This page contains a simple guide showing you how to supply power to the iPad 2 when visiting Bermuda by using their standard B or A type 120 volt 60Hz wall outlets, Type B plug outlets will be used by a majority of Bermudans. If your iPad 2 does not power up or charges slowly when you are visiting Bermuda from another country please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally electrical devices which originated from another country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts either take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check your iPad 2 is dual-voltage (usually marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to ensure proper use. If you intend on travelling to a Bermuda city like St. George's we suggest reading the wikipedia entry about Bermuda [1] for further information.
