Varying complicated combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country, especially if you've never visited before. These instructions have been written to stop you worrying if you'll be able to charge the iPad Air 2 when you are going to Bangladesh.The following step-by-step guide shows exactly how to charge your iPad Air 2 when you are in Bangladesh by using their types G, C, D or K Bangladeshi 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. If travelling to Bangladesh from a different region make sure that the iPad Air 2 can be charged using a 240v supply.

What is the best travel charger for an iPad Air 2 in Bangladesh?

If you are travelling with more than just your iPad Air 2 and visiting more than one country the best travel power adapter for Bangladesh to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Bangladeshis use four different standards of plug sockets (types G, C, D and K) and using a power charger like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa just by changing the plugs over. If your iPad Air 2 is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these types of USB travel chargers along with additional support for certain power demanding devices like tablets.

Unlike other chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can charge more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack individual travel adapters for your trip or occupying additional wall sockets. By only packing a single international USB travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for recharging your iPad Air 2 at the airport or on a flight. Because of their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple phones and tablets without needing an additional plug socket.

For those travelling frequently we suggest buying an adaptable travel adapter like this online. The power adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries on a daily basis.
