With only a handful of different types of common standards being used throughout the world this article shows exactly what you'll need to purchase in advance to power the iPad 4 in Jordan. This guide was written to prevent people having to worry if they'll be able to power their iPad 4 when they are travelling abroad.If you are staying in Jordan this page has useful instructions showing how to supply power to your iPad 4 by using the G, B, C, D, F or J type 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, Type G plug outlets will be normally used by most Jordanians. When you are travelling to Jordan from another country please check that your iPad 4 can accept a 240 volt supply.
