Bahraini power outlet

Varying different combinations of voltages and plug types can all be confusing when planning to travel to another country, especially if you've never been there before. If you are visiting Bahrain these useful instructions show powering your iPad 4 using the standard 230 volt 50Hz Type G power outlet, the Bahrainis will use 13 amp plugs for power outlets. You'll find power sockets vary regionally so we recommend reading the list of World power supplies for a complete list of countries. If travelling to Bahrain from another region check your iPad 4 can accept a 240 volt supply. If the iPad 4 was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your iPad 4 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 powering up. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.
