Complicated frequencies and region codes can all cause confusion when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never visited before. When going to Luxembourg these useful instructions show how to supply power to your mobile phone using their F or C type 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When you are visiting Luxembourg from a different country check that the mobile phone can accept a 240 volt supply. If the mobile phone originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure the device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when powering up. If you intend to stay at a Luxembourg place like Luxembourg City or Esch-sur-Alzette we suggest referring to the Wikipedia entry about Luxembourg [1] for further information on visiting the area.

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 all the latest phones please visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
