Uzbekistani power outlet

Complicated combinations of standards and voltages can often cause confusion when planning to stay in a different country, especially if you've never visited before. The following step by step guide shows you how to power your iPad 3 when you're travelling to Uzbekistan by using their Type I or C Uzbekistani 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When travelling to Uzbekistan from another country check the iPad 3 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check that your device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 3.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging the iPad 3 in Uzbekistan?

If travelling with more than just your iPad 3 then the best travel charger for Uzbekistan to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Uzbekistanis use two different standards of power outlets (I and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by changing the included plugs. If your model of iPad 3 supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster recharging times by using one of these travel adapters plus additional compatibility with more power demanding devices.

Unlike other travel chargers this means you can power multiple devices at the same time without needing to bring seperate power adapters. Only bringing a single USB travel charger will also keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage while travelling. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of adapters can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and phones without using up an additional power outlet.

For those travelling often we recommend buying this type of flexible travel adapter at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world.
