Curacaon power outlet

Different frequencies and standards can all be daunting when planning on staying in a different country, especially to the first time traveller. This page contains a step by step guide showing exactly what you'll need to charge the iPhone 6 Plus when you are travelling to Curacao using the standard C, A or B type 127 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Power sockets change from country to country therefore we suggest reading the power supplies page for a full list of countries. If the iPhone 6 Plus doesn't power up or recharges slowly when travelling to Curacao from a different country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically devices which originate from another country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts can take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check that your iPhone 6 Plus is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use. If you are planning on visiting a Curacaon city such as Willemstad refer to the Curacao Wikipedia page [1] for further details on travelling to the location. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
