If you're going to Belarus this page has instructions showing how to supply power to your iPad 2 by using the standard F or C type 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If travelling to Belarus from a different region double check the iPad 2 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure your device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from overheating whilst powering it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 2.
