Mauritanian power outlet

Varying complicated combinations of frequencies and standards can often be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. When you are visiting Mauritania this page has instructions showing you charging the iPad 4 by using a 220 volt 50Hz Type C wall outlet, the Mauritanians will use a Europlug for power outlets. Power sockets will vary depending on which area you are travelling to so we recommend reading the power supplies list for a complete list of regions and countries. When visiting Mauritania from another region ensure that your iPad 4 can be charged using a 240v supply. If your iPad 4 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check the iPad 4 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 4.

What is the best travel charger for the iPad 4 in Mauritania?

When travelling with more than just your iPad 4 then the best travel charger for Mauritania to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your iPad 4 supports Fast Charge (please note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers along with compatibility with certain power hungry devices like tablets. This means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel adapters for your Mauritanian trip. By only packing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage while travelling. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of power adapters can be used back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and smartphones with just a single wall outlet.

We recommend buying a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries.
