Complicated region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning to travel to a different country if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of standards used in the world this guide shows exactly what to buy in advance to charge your iPhone 6 Plus in Togo. This guide shows what you'll need to supply power to your iPhone 6 Plus when you are travelling to Togo by using the standard 220 volt 50Hz Type C Togolese wall outlet, with the Togolese using a Europlug for charging. If visiting Togo from another region please make sure the iPhone 6 Plus can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPhone 6 Plus originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the iPhone 6 Plus is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
