Guadeloupe power outlet

Varying different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on staying in a foreign country if you've never visited before. When going to Guadeloupe the following instructions show charging your iPad Air 2 by using the standard types D, C or E Guadeloupe 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When you are travelling to Guadeloupe from another region please ensure that the iPad Air 2 can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that the iPad Air 2 is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from overheating when charging it. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on an iPad Air 2.

What is the best travel charger for an iPad Air 2 in Guadeloupe?

If travelling to multiple countries the best travel power adapter for Guadeloupe to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. There are three types of plug sockets that Guadeloupians use (types D, C and E) and using a power charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied heads over. If your iPad Air 2 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times with one of these power chargers along with additional compatibility with more power hungry devices. Unlike other chargers this means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to buy multiple travel adapters or using up additional wall sockets. By only needing to pack a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand luggage whilst travelling and convenient for charging your iPad Air 2 at an airport or on a plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of travel adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying a versatile travel charger similar to this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
