What is the best power adapter for the iPad 2 in Azerbaijan?

When you are travelling to more than one country and bringing along more than your iPad 2 then the best international travel adapter for Azerbaijan is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two standards of wall outlets in Azerbaijan (types F and C) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for type C. Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the supplied plugs. If your iPad 2 can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers along with compatibility with certain power hungry devices like tablets. This will allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to buy individual power adapters. Only needing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage and on hand for recharging your iPad 2 at the airport or on your flight. Because of their versatility these types of chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones, tablets and speakers using only a single power outlet.
