Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country, especially for the first time traveller. These instructions were written to prevent people worrying if they can power the iPad 4 when they're visiting abroad.When you're visiting Anguilla the following instructions show charging your iPad 4 using their 110 volt 60Hz A Type power outlet, the Anguillans will use NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plugs for wall outlets. If the iPad 4 slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when you are visiting Anguilla from a different country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use. If you plan on travelling to a place like North Side please read the Anguillan Wiki page [1] for more information on visiting the area.
