Faroese power outlet

Different combinations of standards and sockets can all be daunting when planning to travel to a different country especially for the first time traveller. This page is a guide showing you what you'll need to charge the iPhone 4 when staying in Faroe Islands by using the E, C, F or K type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power supplies will vary from region to region so we recommend reading our Wiki Connections travel power connections page for a complete list of powering devices in different regions and countries. If you are travelling to Faroe Islands from a different country check that the iPhone 4 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure the iPhone 4 is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged during charging. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4.

What is the best power charger for recharging the iPhone 4 in Faroe Islands?

When you are travelling to multiple countries the best travel power adapter for Faroe Islands to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Faroese use four different types of plug sockets (E, C, F and K) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the plugs over. If your model of iPhone 4 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these travel adapters, and support for certain power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other travel chargers having a four port charger means you can power more than one device at the same time without needing to bring individual power chargers for your trip. Because you are only needing to pack a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage. Due to their space saving versatility these types of power adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple phones and tablets without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying this type of versatile travel adapter online. The power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
