Complicated combinations of frequencies and standards can all be confusing when planning on visiting a new country if you've never been there before. This page was specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge your Samsung Galaxy S4 when you are visiting Honduras.When you are going to travel to Honduras the following instructions show how to charge the Samsung Galaxy S4 using the standard B or A type 110 volt 60Hz wall outlets, you'll find a majority of Hondurans normally use the Type B sockets in their plug outlets. If the Samsung Galaxy S4 charges slowly or does not power up when visiting Honduras from a different country please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically devices which originate from another country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts may take longer to charge or won't turn on, check that the device is dual-voltage (normally marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use. If you intend on travelling to a Honduran destination such as Tegucigalpa or San Pedro Sula please read the Honduran Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth details.
