If you are packing for a vacation to Saint Kitts it's useful to know in advance if you can use all your vital electronics like cell phones and laptop computers when you're there. By not knowing which wall socket is used you are likely to bring the wrong power charger, therefore leaving you having to buy a potentially overpriced adaptor when you're there which could be incompatible. Varying different voltages and standards can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country, especially if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of standards being used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need to purchase in advance to power your iPad Air in Saint Kitts. This guide was written to prevent people needing to worry if they'll be able to power their iPad Air when they are visiting abroad.When you are travelling to Saint Kitts this page has useful instructions showing how to charge your iPad Air by using the standard G, A, B or D type 230 volt 60Hz plug outlets, Type G power outlets will be typically used by a majority of Kittitian. Power sockets differ depending on which area you visiting therefore we recommend reading our WikiConnections global power sockets list for a complete list of regions and countries. If you are visiting Saint Kitts from a different country please ensure that the iPad Air can be used with a 240v supply. If the iPad Air came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check the iPad Air is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from over-heating when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Air.
