What is the best travel charger for the iPhone 5 in Jordan?

When travelling to more than one country or bringing more than your iPhone 5 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 5 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.
