Papua New Guinea power outlet

Different combinations of voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning on visiting another country especially if you've never been there before. When you're going to travel to Papua New Guinea these instructions show powering the iPad 2 by using the 240 volt 50Hz Type I power supply. Most power sources are different depending on which region you're in so please read our WikiConnections travel power supplies list for a complete list of charging devices in different regions and countries. When travelling to Papua New Guinea from another region ensure that your iPad 2 can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPad 2 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. If you're planning on visiting a Papua New Guinea city like Port Moresby we suggest reading the Papua New Guinea country Wiki page [1] for further information. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPad 2.
