With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what to pick up in advance to power your iPhone 6 . These instructions have been written to stop people worrying if they'll be able to charge the iPhone 6 abroad.This page is a useful guide which shows exactly how to charge the iPhone 6 when you are travelling to Dominica using the Type G or D 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets, please note Type G power outlets will be used by a majority of Dominicansd. Most power will change regionally therefore we suggest reading the North America page for a complete list of regions and countries. When visiting Dominica from a different region please make sure that your iPhone 6 can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure that your iPhone 6 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged when charging it. If you plan on travelling to a Dominicand place like Roseau or Portsmouth we also suggest reading the Dominica Wikipedia page [1] for more details. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6.
