But without knowing which power supply to expect you are more likely to bring the wrong charger, therefore leaving you having to buy or borrow a potentially overpriced power adaptor when you need it. Varying complicated standards and voltages can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country to the first time traveller. This guide was specifically written to stop visitors worrying if they can charge their iPad Air 2 when they are visiting abroad.This page contains simple instructions which shows exactly how to charge your iPad Air 2 when you're visiting Jordan by using the standard G, B, C, D, F or J type 230 volt 50Hz power outlets, Type G plug outlets will be typically used by a majority of Jordanians. When you are visiting Jordan from a different region please ensure that the iPad Air 2 can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overloading when charging it. These instructions assume that you've downloaded Apple iOS 7 or greater on an iPad Air 2.
