Jordanian power outlet

Different combinations of voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning on visiting another country especially if you've never been there before. When you're going to travel to Jordan the following useful instructions show powering the iPad 2 by using the types G, B, C, D, F or J 230 volt 50Hz power outlets, you'll find a majority of Jordanians normally use the Type G plug outlets. When travelling to Jordan from a different country please ensure your iPad 2 can be charged using a 240v supply. If your iPad 2 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v ensure that your iPad 2 is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from being damaged when powering up. If you're planning on staying somewhere such as Amman or Zarqa we recommend reading the Jordanian country Wiki page [1] for more information. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 2.

What is the best travel adapter for the iPad 2 in Jordan?

When travelling with more than your iPad 2 or visiting more than one country the best travel charger for Jordan to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [16]. There are six standards of plug sockets that Jordanians use (types G, B, C, D, F and J) 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 included heads. If your iPad 2 is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times by using one of these travel chargers, along with compatibility with more power demanding devices like tablets. This means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to buy multiple power adapters or using up additional power sockets. By only packing a single USB travel charger will help keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage as well as being suitable for charging your iPad 2 at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used when back at home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple smartphones and tablets without needing an additional wall outlet.

For those travelling to Jordan we recommend buying a versatile power charger of this nature online; the multipurpose power adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [16] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries with good reliably.
