How to connect a Grenadian power outlet to the iPhone 5C

Grenadian power outlet

Complicated region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to visit a different country if you've never visited before. When visiting Grenada the following instructions show charging your iPhone 5C using their 230 volt 50Hz G Type power outlet, the Grenadians will use 13 amp plugs for wall outlets. When you are visiting Grenada from a different country check your iPhone 5C can be used with a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.

What is the best power charger for the iPhone 5C in Grenada?

If travelling to more than one country the best travel charger for Grenada is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world simply by switching the plugs. If your iPhone 5C is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power chargers plus support for certain power demanding devices. Having a four port charger means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power chargers. Because you are only bringing a single travel charger will help keep the weight down, making it perfect to store in hand baggage. Due to their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers with only a single plug socket.

We suggest buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer. The power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous countries.
