Varying different standards and voltages can often be daunting when planning to travel to another country if you've never been there before. When staying in Jordan the following useful instructions show how to charge the iPhone 6 Plus using the G, B, C, D, F or J type Jordanian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, please be aware Type G plug outlets are typically used by a majority of Jordanians. When travelling to Jordan from a different region ensure the iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure that your iPhone 6 Plus is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating during charging. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.

What is the best travel adapter for the iPhone 6 Plus in Jordan?

If you are travelling with more than your iPhone 6 Plus and visiting multiple countries then the best travel power adapter for Jordan is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [16]. Jordanians use six different standards of plug sockets (types G, B, C, D, F and J) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G. Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by changing the included plugs over. If your iPhone 6 Plus is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times with one of these USB travel chargers, along with support for more power demanding devices.

This will also allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to buy seperate travel adapters. By only packing a single international travel charger will help keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage while travelling. Due to their space saving versatility these types of chargers can be used at home so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets using just a single wall outlet.

If you travel to Jordan we recommend buying this type of versatile travel charger at your preferred electronics retailer - the power adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [16] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world.
