When you are travelling to multiple countries or bringing more than just your iPad Mini 2 then the best international travel adapter for Djibouti to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Djiboutians use two different standards of plug sockets (types E and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your model of iPad Mini 2 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters, plus additional compatibility with certain power hungry devices like tablets.
