hi, all! Just registered and look forward to learning more about my iPad & iPhone from you who are long time Apple users. All my experience is with PCs. I've had an iPad for about a year and a half and an iPhone 3GS for about a year--really like them but much to learn. Stumbled across this forum while researching whether or not I can charge these devices on a visit to South Africa where the electric is 230V and 50hz.
Anyone with experience abroad?

No experience abroad - but welcome! I also stumbled upon this forum when I googled a question.. Forget the question now! But I never looked back.

I bought my iPad2 in Portland a couple of month ago, when I was there for a visit - I live and work and play around with my iPad here in Germany....
Actually I did not even both to think about the difference in the power supply, as nowadays all this kind of gadget chargers are multi-voltage - this way they only produce one charger for their worldwide sales.
The only thing I actually needed was something to fit it into the power plug of my house, but there are adaptors to change the plugs of the charger (or power supply) itself - this I bought as I would stay here possibly longer ;o)
Travel adaptor- set in any electric supply store available.
South Africa is great- where and how long are you going to be there?

thanks to everyone who has replied to my initial "howdy" and question re traveling abroad. I now have found that different voltages are no problem--only need a plug adapter. Intend to be in Cape Town working with a missionary and all my Bibles and study books are--you guessed it--in one slim package!
Blessings to you all,
