Varying different standards and plug types can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country for the first time traveller. This page contains instructions telling you how to supply power to the iPhone 5 when you're visiting Nauru using the 240 volt 50Hz Type I wall outlet. Most power changes from region to region therefore we suggest reading the Oceania page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Nauru from a different country please double check the iPhone 5 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone 5 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you're planning on taking a trip to a Nauruan city like Yaren or Denigomudu we also suggest reading the Nauru Wikipedia page [1] for more details. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5.
