Various voltages and plugs can often be confusing when planning on visiting a new country to the first time traveller. This guide was specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge your iPhone 6 Plus abroad.This page has useful instructions demonstrating exactly what you'll need to supply power to your iPhone 6 Plus when travelling to Djibouti by using their Type E or C Djiboutian 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets.
