Varying different voltages and plugs can often lead to confusion when planning to travel to another country if you've never been there before. When you are visiting Honduras the following useful instructions show how to power your iPhone 5C by using their standard types B or A 110 volt 60Hz wall outlets, a majority of Catrachos will use the Type B plugs in their wall outlets. If the iPhone 5C charges slowly or does not power up when you are visiting Honduras from another region then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which originated from a different country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) may take longer to charge or won't turn on, check that your iPhone 5C is a dual voltage device (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.
