What is the best power charger for recharging the iPad 2 in Bangladesh?

When travelling with more than just your iPad 2 the best travel charger for Bangladesh is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Bangladeshis use four different standards of wall outlets (G, C, D and K) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries around the world just by changing the plugs over. If your iPad 2 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these travel adapters and additional support for certain power hungry devices like tablets. Unlike other adapters having a 4 port charger means you can power more than one device at the same time without needing to pack individual travel adapters. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple phones, tablets and e-readers without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest searching for this type of versatile power charger at an electronics retailer, the power adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
