Varying different voltages and plugs can all lead to confusion when planning to stay in another country especially if you've never been there before. This page contains simple instructions showing what you'll need to power your iPad 3 in Bangladesh using their standard G, C, D or K type Bangladeshi 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. If visiting Bangladesh from a different country please make sure that your iPad 3 can be charged using a 240v supply. If your iPad 3 was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v ensure that your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 3.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPad 3 in Bangladesh?

If you are travelling to more than one country or bringing more than your iPad 3 the best international travel adapter for Bangladesh to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. There are four different standards of plug sockets in Bangladesh (G, C, D and K) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the heads. If your type of iPad 3 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters, plus additional support for certain power hungry devices. Unlike other travel chargers having a four port adapter means you can recharge more than one device at once without needing to bring individual power adapters. By only needing to bring a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling as well as being convenient for recharging your iPad 3 at an airport or on your flight. Because of their versatility these types of power adapters can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and e-readers without needing an additional plug socket.

If you travel to Bangladesh we recommend buying a versatile power charger of this nature online. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated below is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
