Varying different standards and voltages can all be confusing when planning to stay in a new country if you've never been there before. If travelling to Indonesia the following instructions show how to charge the iPhone 6 Plus by using the Type G, C or F Indonesian 220 volt 50Hz power outlets, a majority of Indonesians will normally use Type G power outlets. When travelling to Indonesia from another country make sure the iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased in 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) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from overloading during charging. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
