Guadeloupe power outlet

Varying complicated combinations of standards and sockets can often be confusing when planning to stay in another country especially if you've never visited before. When going to Guadeloupe this page contains instructions showing how to supply power to your iPhone 5 using the standard Type D, C or E 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. Power sources will vary regionally so we recommend that you read the WikiConnections world power connections guide where you'll find a full list showing charging devices in different destinations. If visiting Guadeloupe from a different country check that the iPhone 5 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure that the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from over-heating when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5.

What is the best travel adapter for the iPhone 5 in Guadeloupe?

If travelling with more than just your iPhone 5 the best travel adapter for Guadeloupe to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Guadeloupians use three different types of plug sockets (types D, C and E) and using a power adapter like this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the included plugs. If your type of iPhone 5 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much faster charging times with one of these travel adapters, plus support for more power hungry devices like tablets. Having a four port charger will also allow you to charge multiple devices at once without needing to buy multiple travel adapters for your Guadeloupe trip. Because you are only needing to bring a single lightweight travel charger will help keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage while travelling and suitable for charging your iPhone 5 at an airport or on a plane. Because of their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets without using up an additional power outlet.

We recommend searching for this type of versatile travel charger at an electronics retailer; the multipurpose travel charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries with perfect reliably.
