Varying different frequencies and region codes can all be daunting when planning on staying in a different country, especially to the first time traveller. This page contains useful instructions which shows what you'll need to power your iPhone 6 Plus when you are visiting Bangladesh by using their standard types G, C, D or K 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If you are visiting Bangladesh from a different region please check your iPhone 6 Plus can be charged using a 240v supply. If the iPhone 6 Plus was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure your iPhone 6 Plus is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPhone 6 Plus in Bangladesh?

If you are travelling with more than just your iPhone 6 Plus and visiting multiple countries the best international travel charger for Bangladesh to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [11]. Bangladeshis use four different standards of wall outlets (types G, C, D and K) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G. As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs. If your iPhone 6 Plus supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times by using one of these types of travel adapters and additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can recharge more than one device at once without needing to bring individual power adapters. By only needing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and smartphones using just a single power outlet.

If you travel frequently we suggest searching for a flexible power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer; the power adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [11] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
