Complicated combinations of voltages and region codes can all be daunting when planning to travel to a different country, especially if you've never been there before. If going to Israel these instructions show how to power the iPhone 6 Plus using their types M, C or H Israeli 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, most Israelis will typically use the Type M sockets in their power outlets.

If travelling with more than your iPhone 6 Plus and visiting multiple countries then the best international travel charger for Israel is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. Israelis use three different standards of power outlets (M, C and H) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by switching the plugs over. If your model of iPhone 6 Plus supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times with one of these USB travel adapters plus compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. Having a 4 port charger will also allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to pack individual travel adapters or using up additional power outlets. Only packing a single international USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand luggage. Due to their space saving versatility these types of power adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers without needing an additional wall outlet.
