Jordanian power outlet

Varying complicated region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to a new country, especially if you've never been there before. When you are planning a holiday to Jordan this page contains useful instructions showing powering the iPhone 5C by using the Type G, B, C, D, F or J 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, Type G plug outlets are normally used by a majority of Jordanians. You'll discover that power supplies differ depending on which country you are in therefore please read the travel power supplies page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Jordan from a different country please check the iPhone 5C can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone 5C was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) make sure that your iPhone 5C is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from being damaged when charging it. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.

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

If you are travelling to more than one country and bringing along more than your iPhone 5C then the best travel charger for Jordan to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [16]. Jordanians use six different types of wall outlets (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 plugs and handle from 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries around the world just by switching the included heads. If your iPhone 5C can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these types of travel chargers, and compatibility with certain power hungry devices.

This means you can charge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to buy individual travel chargers. By only bringing a single international travel charger will keep the weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand baggage. Because of their versatility these types of chargers can be used when you return home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and e-readers without using up an additional plug socket.

If you travel regularly we suggest searching for this type of flexible travel charger online; the travel charger illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [16] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
