When you are travelling with more than just your iPad Air then the best travel charger for Dominica is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two different types of plug sockets that Dominicansd use (types G and D) and using a power adapter like this ensures that you are covered for type G. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs. If your model of iPad Air can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster recharging times by using one of these types of power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices. Having a 4 port adapter means you can charge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring individual power chargers for your trip.

Because of their flexibility these types of adapters can be used back at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple smartphones, tablets and e-readers without needing an additional power outlet.
