Guadeloupe power outlet

Varying different voltages and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to a new country, especially if you've never been there before. When you are planning a holiday to Guadeloupe this page contains useful instructions showing charging the iPad 3 by using their standard Type D, C or E 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If you are visiting Guadeloupe from another country ensure that your iPad 3 can be charged using a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v make sure that the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating during charging. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 3.

What is the best power adapter for the iPad 3 in Guadeloupe?

When you are travelling with more than your iPad 3 or visiting more than one country the best international travel adapter for Guadeloupe is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Guadeloupians use three different types of power outlets (types D, C and E) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the supplied plugs over. If your type of iPad 3 is compatible with Fast Charge (please note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster charging times with one of these types of travel chargers, plus additional support for more power demanding devices like tablets. Having a four port adapter means you can charge multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack multiple power adapters for your Guadeloupe trip or using up additional power sockets. Only packing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage while travelling as well as being suitable for charging your iPad 3 at the airport or on the flight. Due to their versatility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional wall outlet.

We recommend buying an adaptable travel charger of this nature at your preferred electronics retailer. The travel charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world on a daily basis.
