Varying complicated region codes and plug types can all be confusing when planning to travel to another country, especially for the first time traveller. If you are visiting Paraguay this page contains instructions showing how to charge your iPad Air 2 using their 220 volt 50Hz Type C Paraguayan wall outlet, with the Paraguayans using Europlugs for wall outlets. You will find that most power supplies will change from country to country therefore we suggest that you read the WikiConnections global power supplies page where you'll find a complete list of powering devices in different countries. If travelling to Paraguay from another region check your iPad Air 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If the iPad Air 2 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v double check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overloading when charging it.
