Complicated combinations of standards and plugs can often be daunting when planning on travelling to another country, especially if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of sockets being used throughout the world this article tells you exactly what you'll need in advance to power the mobile phone in Grenada. If you're visiting Grenada this page contains instructions showing you how to charge your mobile phone using their 230 volt 50Hz G Type Grenadian wall outlet, with the Grenadians using a 13 amp plug for power outlets. When you are travelling to Grenada from another region please ensure that the mobile phone can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check that the mobile phone is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overheating when charging it.

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.
