Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. This isn't as complex as it appears, with only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used throughout the world this article shows exactly what you'll need in advance to power your iPhone 6 Plus in Serbia. If you are visiting Serbia this page contains instructions showing you how to power the iPhone 6 Plus using their F or C type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power sources will change regionally so we suggest that you read our Wiki Connections travel power sockets guide where you'll find a full list showing countries. If visiting Serbia from a different region check your iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240v supply. If the iPhone 6 Plus originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to avoid the device from being damaged during charging. If you are planning on visiting a place like Belgrade we also suggest referring to the Wikipedia.org page about Serbia [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area.

What is the best travel charger for the iPhone 6 Plus in Serbia?

If travelling to multiple countries the best travel adapter for Serbia to buy is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two types of plug sockets that Serbs use (types F and C) and using a power charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied heads over. If your iPhone 6 Plus is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using 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 individual travel adapters on your trip to Serbia. Because you are only needing to bring a single international USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage whilst travelling. Due to their space saving versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple smartphones, tablets and e-readers with only a single wall outlet.

If you travel frequently we suggest buying this type of flexible power charger at your preferred electronics retailer. The power charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
