Tajikistani power outlet

Various combinations of voltages and standards can often be daunting when planning to travel to a new country if you've never visited before. These instructions have been specifically written to stop you having to worry if you'll be able to charge your iPhone 6 Plus abroad.When you are visiting Tajikistan the following useful instructions show powering the iPhone 6 Plus using the Type F or C Tajikistani 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. When travelling to Tajikistan from a different region ensure that your iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it up. If you plan to visit a place like Dushanbe or Khujand we recommend reading the wikipedia entry about Tajikistan [1] for further information. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPhone 6 Plus in Tajikistan?

If you are travelling to more than one country or bringing more than your iPhone 6 Plus the best international travel charger for Tajikistan to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Tajikistanis use two different standards of plug sockets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the supplied plugs over. If your iPhone 6 Plus supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster charging times by using one of these types of travel adapters along with additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other chargers having a 4 port charger means you can recharge multiple devices at once without needing to bring individual power adapters. By only needing a single travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple smartphones and tablets using only a single power outlet.

We suggest searching for a multipurpose power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer - the power adapter illustrated is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [8] which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries on a daily basis.
