Different combinations of voltages and region codes can often be daunting when planning to travel to another country if you've never been there before. If staying in East Timor the following instructions show how to power the iPad Air by using the Type E, C, F or I East Timor 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. Power supplies differ regionally therefore we suggest reading the list of World power supplies for a full list of countries. If you are visiting East Timor from another country please check the iPad Air can be charged using a 240v supply. If your iPad Air was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you plan to visit an East Timor city like Dili refer to the East Timor Wikipedia web page [1] for further details on travelling to the location. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Air.
