East Timor power outlet

Different combinations of standards and sockets can all be daunting when planning to travel to a different country especially for the first time traveller. This page is a guide showing you what you'll need to charge the iPad 2 when staying in East Timor by using the E, C, F or I type 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power supplies will vary from region to region so we recommend reading our Wiki Connections travel power connections page for a complete list of powering devices in different regions and countries. If you are travelling to East Timor from a different country check that the iPad 2 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the iPad 2 is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged during charging. 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 East Timor?

If travelling with more than your iPad 2 or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel charger for East Timor is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. There are four different types of plug sockets that East Timorese use (types E, C, F and I) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by changing the supplied heads over. If your iPad 2 is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times by using one of these types of USB travel chargers plus additional compatibility with more power hungry devices. Having a 4 port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device simultaneously without needing to pack seperate power adapters or using up additional wall outlets. By only bringing a single travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage whilst travelling and convenient for charging your iPad 2 at an airport or on a plane. Because of their flexibility these types of adapters can be used back at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers without needing an additional plug socket.

For those travelling often we recommend searching for this type of flexible power charger at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [10] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world.
