Jersey power outlet

When packing for a trip to Jersey it can often be helpful to know if you can use any common electronics when you arrive. By not knowing which power socket to expect you are likely to bring the wrong adaptor, therefore needing to buy or borrow a suitable adaptor when you're there which might be incompatible and cause problems with your iPhone 6 Plus. Various combinations of region codes and plugs can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country for the first time traveller. The following guide tells you exactly what you'll need to power your iPhone 6 Plus when going to Jersey by using a standard 230 volt 50Hz G Type Jersey power outlet, with the Channel Islanders using 13 amp plugs for charging. You will find power changes regionally therefore we suggest reading the Europe page for a complete list of regions and countries. When visiting Jersey from another region make sure your iPhone 6 Plus can be charged using a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure your iPhone 6 Plus is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from overheating during charging. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
