Guadeloupe power outlet

Various combinations of standards and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country, especially to the first time traveller. This guide has been written to help prepare travellers wanting to power their iPhone when they are travelling to Guadeloupe.This page is a useful guide which shows exactly what you'll need to charge the iPhone when you're travelling to Guadeloupe using their standard D, C or E type Guadeloupe 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Most power supplies will change depending on which region you travelling to so please read the WikiConnections travel power supplies guide for a complete list showing charging devices in different regions and countries. When travelling to Guadeloupe from another region ensure that your iPhone can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure the device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from over-heating whilst powering it.
