Complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning on travelling to a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. This page was specifically written to prevent travellers worrying if they'll be able to charge the iPad 4 when staying in Bangladesh.The following useful guide tells you exactly what you'll need to charge the iPad 4 when you're visiting Bangladesh using the Type G, C, D or K Bangladeshi 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Bangladesh from another country ensure your iPad 4 can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPad 4 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts check that your iPad 4 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overloading whilst powering it. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.

What is the best power adapter for the iPad 4 in Bangladesh?

When travelling to more than one country or bringing more than your iPad 4 then the best travel charger for Bangladesh is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Bangladeshis use four different types of power outlets (types G, C, D and K) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by switching the included plugs. If your iPad 4 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster charging times by using one of these travel chargers, plus additional support for certain power hungry devices.

Unlike other adapters this means you can recharge multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack individual travel chargers or occupying additional power sockets. Because you are only packing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage and on hand for recharging your iPad 4 at the airport or on your flight. Due to their space saving versatility these types of chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple phones and tablets without needing an additional plug socket.

We recommend searching for a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated below is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
