Complicated combinations of standards and sockets can often be daunting when planning on visiting another country to the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets being used throughout the world this guide shows exactly what you'll need to purchase in advance to power the mobile phone in Kyrgyzstan. This page was specifically written to assist visitors wanting to charge the mobile phone when going abroad.This page contains a guide showing what you'll need to power the mobile phone in Kyrgyzstan by using their Type F or C Kyrgyzstani 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. If travelling to Kyrgyzstan from another country check your mobile phone can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure that the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating when charging it. If you are planning to visit a Kyrgyzstani place such as Bishkek or Osh we also suggest referring to the Kyrgyzstan Wikipedia web page [1] for more information on the location.

This how-to guide is for a generic mobile phone and assume the phone has a standard micro USB port, Bluetooth connectivity and a headphone socket. For a specific mobile phone visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.

Charging any mobile phone in Kyrgyzstan

What is the best power adapter for recharging any mobile phone in Kyrgyzstan?

When travelling with more than your mobile phone and visiting multiple countries the best travel adapter for Kyrgyzstan to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Kyrgyzstanis use two different standards of wall outlets (F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by switching the plugs over. If your model of mobile phone is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times by using one of these types of power chargers, along with support for certain power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other chargers this will also allow you to power multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring multiple power chargers for your trip to Kyrgyzstan or using up additional wall sockets. By only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the weight down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage and suitable for recharging your mobile phone at an airport or on a plane. Due to their flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used back at home so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers and using only a single plug socket.

We suggest buying this type of versatile travel charger at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose power charger illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully with multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
