Varying complicated combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. This isn't as complex as it appears, with only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used throughout the world this article shows exactly what you'll need in advance to power your iPad Mini 4 in Mozambique. If you are visiting Mozambique this page contains instructions showing you how to charge the iPad Mini 4 using their Type F, C or M Mozambican 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets.

What is the best power charger for the iPad Mini 4 in Mozambique?

If travelling to multiple countries the best international travel power adapter for Mozambique to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. There are three types of plug sockets that Mozambicans use (types F, C and M) and using a power charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied heads over. If your iPad Mini 4 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. Unlike other chargers this means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to pack individual travel adapters. Only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage whilst travelling. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying this type of flexible power charger at an electronics retailer. The power adapter illustrated below is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [10] which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
