Differing combinations of standards and sockets can often be daunting when planning on visiting another country to the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of sockets being used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what to buy in advance to power the iPad Air in Bermuda. This guide was specifically written to stop you worrying if you'll be able to charge the iPad Air when you're in Bermuda.If going to Bermuda this page has instructions showing powering your iPad Air by using the standard B or A type 120 volt 60Hz plug outlets, please note that Type B power outlets are normally used by a majority of Bermudians. If your iPad Air charges slowly or does not power up when you are travelling to Bermuda from a different country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally devices which originated from a country which use a higher voltage (for example 220 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check that the device is dual-voltage (you'll find these are normally marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad Air.
