Varying different voltages and plugs can all lead to confusion when planning to visit another country if you've never been there before. When planning a vacation to Serbia these instructions show powering the iPad Mini using the Type F or C Serbian 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are travelling to Serbia from a different country please double check your iPad Mini can be charged using a 240v supply. If the iPad Mini was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts make sure that your iPad Mini is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Mini.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPad Mini in Serbia?

If you are travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your iPad Mini then the best international travel adapter for Serbia is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two different types of power outlets that Serbians use (F and C) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs. If your iPad Mini supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these USB travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets. Having a four port adapter means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to buy individual power adapters or using up additional power sockets. Only packing a single USB travel charger will help keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being suitable for charging your iPad Mini at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving versatility these types of chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple smartphones and tablets without needing an additional wall outlet.

We recommend buying a flexible travel charger of this nature online. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
