This guide was specifically written to stop you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge the iPhone when abroad.When travelling to Kosovo these useful instructions show how to supply power to your iPhone using their Type F or C Kosovan 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets.

What is the best travel adapter for recharging the iPhone in Kosovo?

When travelling with more than your iPhone then the best international travel charger for Kosovo is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Kosovars use two different standards of wall outlets (F and C) and using a travel charger like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by changing the supplied heads. If your iPhone is compatible with Fast Charge (note not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times with one of these power chargers and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets. Unlike other chargers having a four port charger will also allow you to charge multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power chargers on your trip to Kosovo. Because you are only packing a single lightweight USB travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage as well as being convenient for recharging your iPhone at the airport or on the plane. Due to 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 under your bedside table charging multiple tablets and phones without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying a versatile travel adapter like this at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries with perfect reliably.
