Varying different combinations of voltages and standards can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country if you've never visited before. This guide was specifically written to stop you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge your iPad Air when you are staying abroad.This page has useful instructions showing exactly how to power the iPad Air when travelling to Herzegovina by using the standard types F or C Herzegovinian 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are visiting Herzegovina from a different country check your iPad Air can be used with a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure the iPad Air is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from over-heating whilst powering it up.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging the iPad Air in Herzegovina?

When you are travelling to more than one country the best travel adapter for Herzegovina to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Herzegovinians use two different standards of wall outlets (F and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs. If your iPad Air is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of USB travel adapters, and support for certain power demanding devices. Unlike other chargers this will also allow you to recharge more than one device simultaneously without needing to buy individual power chargers or using up additional wall sockets. Only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage as well as being on hand for charging your iPad Air at an airport or on a plane. Because of their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used overnight charging multiple phones, tablets and speakers without using up an additional power outlet.
