Varying different frequencies and standards can all be daunting when planning on staying in another country, especially to the first time traveller. When you are visiting Azerbaijan the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the iPad 3 using the Type F or C Azerbaijani 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Power supplies change regionally therefore we suggest reading the power supplies list for a full list of countries. When you are travelling to Azerbaijan from another country check that the iPad 3 can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check your iPad 3 is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from being damaged when powering up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 3.
