Seychellois power outlet

Complicated combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. These guidelines have been specifically written to stop visitors having to worry if they can charge the iPhone 6 Plus when they're travelling abroad.This page is a step by step guide demonstrating exactly what you'll need to charge the iPhone 6 Plus when you're travelling to Seychelles using the 240 volt 50Hz G Type Seychellois power outlet, the Seychellois will use a 13 amp plug for wall outlets. Most power is different depending on which area you are in so please read the power supplies and Africa page for a full list of countries. When you are travelling to Seychelles from another country ensure the iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it. If you're planning on staying in a Seychellois city like Victoria or Anse Etoile we recommend reading the Seychellois Wikipedia web page [1] for more details prior to visiting the location. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.

What is the best power charger for recharging the iPhone 6 Plus in Seychelles?

If you are travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your iPhone 6 Plus then the best travel adapter for Seychelles is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger.

Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your iPhone 6 Plus can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters plus additional support for more power hungry devices.

Unlike other chargers having a 4 port charger will allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack multiple travel chargers on your Seychellois trip. By only needing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being suitable for charging your iPhone 6 Plus at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of chargers can be used when back at home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets and phones without needing an additional plug socket.

If you travel to Seychelles we suggest buying a flexible power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer - the travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
