Varying complicated combinations of voltages and standards can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country especially for the first time traveller. However this isn't as complicated as it first appears, with only a handful of different types of sockets used in the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need in advance to charge your iPad Mini 4 in Brunei. When going to Brunei these useful instructions show how to supply power to your iPad Mini 4 using their 240 volt 50Hz G Type plug outlet, with the Bruneians using a 13 amp plug for charging. Most power sources will change regionally so please read our Wiki Connections global power connections page for a full list showing regions. If travelling to Brunei from another country please make sure the iPad Mini 4 can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that your iPad Mini 4 is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 9 or greater on the iPad Mini 4.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging the iPad Mini 4 in Brunei?

When you are travelling to more than one country then the best international travel power adapter for Brunei to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [6]. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the included plugs. If your iPad Mini 4 is compatible with Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers plus support for more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a four port charger means you can charge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring multiple travel adapters. Because you are only packing a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage as well as being on hand for charging your iPad Mini 4 at an airport or on the plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of travel adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple smartphones and tablets with only a single plug socket.
