Uzbekistani power outlet

Differing region codes and plug types can all be confusing when planning to travel to a different country especially for the first time traveller. The following step by step instructions tells you exactly how to power the iPhone 4S when you are visiting Uzbekistan by using the standard Type I or C 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. You'll discover that most power sockets are different regionally so we recommend reading our Wikiconnections global power sockets guide where you'll find a complete list showing regions and countries. If visiting Uzbekistan from a different country check your iPhone 4S can accept a 240 volt supply. If the iPhone 4S originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) check that your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4S.

What is the best power charger for the iPhone 4S in Uzbekistan?

When you are travelling with more than just your iPhone 4S then the best international travel charger for Uzbekistan is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Uzbekistanis use two different types of plug sockets (I and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries around the world simply by switching the included heads over. If your model of iPhone 4S supports Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. Unlike other chargers this means you can power multiple devices simultaneously without needing to buy multiple travel adapters or using up additional wall outlets. By only packing a single travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage as well as being on hand for charging your iPhone 4S at the airport or on the plane. Because of their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when you return home as well as abroad so when you're not travelling they can sit overnight charging multiple phones and tablets with only a single plug socket.

For those travelling frequently we recommend searching for this type of flexible power charger online. The power charger illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [8] which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
