What is the best travel charger for the iPhone 6 in Israel?

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

As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world simply by changing the supplied plugs. If your model of iPhone 6 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these types of power adapters plus additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a 4 port adapter will also allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to buy seperate travel adapters for your trip.
