If your iPad Mini 2 does not power up or charges slowly when visiting Anguilla from another country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically devices which originated from a country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts may take longer to charge or won't power up, so check that the iPad Mini 2 is a dual voltage device (normally marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to ensure proper use.
