Guyanese power outlet

Varying different combinations of voltages and plug types can often be confusing when planning on travelling to another country especially if you've never visited before. When staying in Guyana this page contains instructions showing powering your iPad by using the standard Type G, A, B or D 220 volt 60Hz power outlets. Power sources will vary regionally so we recommend that you read the WikiConnections world power connections guide for a full list showing charging devices in different destinations. If you are travelling to Guyana from a different country make sure that the iPad can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts ensure that the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from overloading when charging it. This page details the original iPad first generation, visit the Apple category page for the latest range of Apple iPads. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 5 or greater on the iPad.

What is the best travel adapter for the iPad in Guyana?

If travelling with more than your iPad or visiting multiple countries the best travel adapter for Guyana to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Guyanese use four different types of plug sockets (types G, A, B and D) and using a power adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types A and G. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied plugs. If your type of iPad can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times with one of these travel adapters, and support for more power hungry devices like tablets. Having a 4 port charger will also allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to pack individual travel adapters. Because you are only needing to bring a single international travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage and suitable for recharging your iPad at an airport or on a plane. Because of their flexibility these types of chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.

We suggest searching for this type of versatile travel charger at an electronics retailer; the multipurpose travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries with perfect reliably.
