These guidelines were written to stop visitors worrying if they can power their mobile phone when they are travelling to Uzbekistan.If you're visiting Uzbekistan these useful instructions show charging your mobile phone using the standard types I or C Uzbekistani 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When you are travelling to Uzbekistan from another region please ensure that the mobile phone can accept a 240v supply.

These instructions are for a generic mobile phone and assume the phone has a standard micro USB port, Bluetooth connectivity and a headphone socket. For a specific mobile phone please visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
