If you are organizing a trip it's useful to know if you'll be able to charge all your vital electrical devices such as mobiles and laptops when you get there. Without knowing which power socket is used you may pack the wrong power adaptor, therefore needing to buy a potentially expensive charger when you're there that could be incompatible and damage the device. Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all be daunting when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. This page has been written to prevent you worrying if you'll be able to charge your iPhone 4S abroad.If you're staying in Jordan these instructions show charging the iPhone 4S by using the types G, B, C, D, F or J 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, a majority of Jordanians will typically use Type G plugs in their plug outlets. If you are visiting Jordan from a different region please check the iPhone 4S 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 (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. If you're planning on taking a trip to destinations like Amman or Zarqa please refer to the Wikipedia.org entry about Jordan [1] for more indepth information. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4S.

What is the best travel charger for the iPhone 4S in Jordan?

When travelling to more than one country or bringing more than your iPhone 4S then the best international travel adapter for Jordan is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [16]. There are six standards of wall outlets that Jordanians use (types G, B, C, D, F and J) and using a travel adapter like this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by changing the heads. If your type of iPhone 4S is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these USB power chargers, plus additional compatibility with certain power hungry devices.

This will also allow you to power more than one device at once without needing to buy individual power adapters or occupying additional wall sockets. Because you are only packing a single international travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of power chargers can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and smartphones without using up an additional wall outlet.

For those travelling to different destinations we recommend buying a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer. The travel charger illustrated below is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [16] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
