Complicated combinations of standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning to visit another country to the first time traveller. These guidelines were specifically written to stop people having to worry if they'll be able to power their iPhone 6 when they're abroad.The following step-by-step instructions shows what you'll need to power the iPhone 6 when you're travelling to Guyana using their standard Type G, A, B or D 220 volt 60Hz plug outlets. If travelling to Guyana from a different region make sure that the iPhone 6 can accept a 240v supply. If the iPhone 6 was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that the device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from over-heating during charging. If you plan to visit a Guyanese place such as Georgetown we recommend reading the Guyanese Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth information on travelling to the location. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6.

What is the best power charger for recharging the iPhone 6 in Guyana?

When travelling with more than your iPhone 6 then the best travel adapter for Guyana to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [12]. There are four types of power outlets in Guyana (types G, A, B and D) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and G. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries around the world just by changing the plugs over. If your iPhone 6 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these types of power adapters, plus compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets.

This will allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to buy multiple power chargers. Only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the weight and size down, making it ideal to store in hand luggage. Due to their space saving versatility these types of travel adapters can be used back at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple phones and tablets using just a single plug socket.

We recommend searching for this type of flexible power adapter at an electronics retailer - the power adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [12] which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries on a daily basis.
