Varying different region codes and plugs can often lead to confusion when planning on staying in a different country, especially if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used in the world this guide tells you exactly what to purchase in advance to charge the iPad Mini 4 . If visiting Uzbekistan this page contains useful instructions showing you how to supply power to your iPad Mini 4 by using the Type I or C Uzbekistani 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power sockets will change regionally therefore please read our Wiki Connections travel power connections page where you'll find a full list showing powering devices in different countries.

Only needing a single lightweight travel charger will keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand luggage. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without using up an additional power outlet.
