Jordanian power outlet

Varying complicated frequencies and standards can often be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially if you've never been there before. When you are visiting Jordan this page has instructions showing you charging the Samsung Galaxy S4 by using the types G, B, C, D, F or J 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, Type G plug outlets will be used by a majority of Jordanians. When travelling to Jordan from a different country please double check the Samsung Galaxy S4 can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v check that the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from being damaged when charging it. If you plan on staying in a place such as Amman or Salt please refer to the Wikipedia.org entry about Jordan [1] for more indepth information.

We recommend referring to the Samsung Galaxy S4 instruction manual [2] for further information on the operation of the mobile phone and visit the Galaxy page for more phones in the Samsung Galaxy range which can connect to the Jordanian power outlet.

What is the best travel charger for recharging a Samsung Galaxy S4 in Jordan?

When travelling with more than just your Samsung Galaxy S4 then the best travel charger for Jordan to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [16]. Jordanians use six different types of power outlets (types G, B, C, D, F and J) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your Samsung Galaxy S4 can support Fast Charge (note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power hungry devices. This means you can charge more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel chargers for your Jordanian trip. By only packing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage while travelling. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of power adapters can be used back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple phones, tablets and e-readers with just a single wall outlet.

We recommend buying a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated below is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [16] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
