Herzegovinian power outlet

Varying different voltages and plugs can all lead to confusion when planning to visit another country if you've never been there before. When planning a vacation to Herzegovina these instructions show powering the iPhone using the Type F or C Herzegovinian 230 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are travelling to Herzegovina from a different country please double check your iPhone can be charged using a 240v supply. If the iPhone was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120 volts make sure that your iPhone is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged when charging it.

This page details the iPhone 1st generation, the original iPhone is missing some features which have since been introduced to more recent iPhones. Visit the Apple category page for a full range of Apple iPhones. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 3 or greater on the iPhone.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPhone in Herzegovina?

If you are travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your iPhone then the best travel adapter for Herzegovina is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Herzegovinians use two different types of power outlets (F and C) and bringing this will ensure that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean that you can travel to multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your type of iPhone can support Fast Charge (note that not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from quicker recharging times with one of these USB power adapters, plus additional support for certain power hungry devices. Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate travel adapters or occupying additional wall outlets. Because you are only bringing a single international travel charger will help keep the overall weight down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of power adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones, tablets and e-readers without needing an additional plug socket.

If you travel to Herzegovina we suggest buying a versatile power adapter like this at your preferred electronics retailer; the power adapter illustrated is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
