Varying different combinations of standards and plugs can often cause confusion when planning to stay in a different country, especially if you've never been there before. These instructions were specifically written to help prepare travellers wanting to charge their iPhone 6 Plus abroad.When you're visiting Nauru these instructions show how to power the iPhone 6 Plus using their standard 240 volt 50Hz Type I power outlet. If travelling to Nauru from a different region check that the iPhone 6 Plus can be charged using a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from overloading during charging. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
