What is the best travel adapter for recharging an iPad Air 2 in Tajikistan?

When travelling to multiple countries the best travel adapter for Tajikistan to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. There are two types of plug sockets that Tajikistanis use (types F and C) and using a power charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the plugs.
