Varying different combinations of frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on travelling to a foreign country to the first time traveller. The following step by step instructions tells you exactly how to power the iPhone 5C when you are visiting Myanmar by using the standard Type G, C, D or F 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. When you are visiting Myanmar from a different country make sure that the iPhone 5C can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPhone 5C was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overheating when charging it. If you intend to stay at a city such as Yangon or Mandalay read the Myanmar country Wiki page [1] for further details prior to the location. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.

What is the best power charger for the iPhone 5C in Myanmar?

When you are travelling with more than just your iPhone 5C then the best international travel charger for Myanmar is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Myanmas use four different types of plug sockets (G, C, D and F) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for both types C and G.

Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries around the world simply by switching the included heads over. If your model of iPhone 5C supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these power chargers along with additional compatibility with more power demanding devices. Having a 4 port adapter means you can charge more than one device at the same time without needing to bring multiple travel chargers or occupying additional power outlets. Only bringing a single travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage. Due to their versatility these types of power chargers can be used at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying a versatile travel adapter similar to this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world on a daily basis.
