St Pierrais power outlet

Different combinations of region codes and plug types can often lead to confusion when planning on visiting another country, especially to the first time traveller. If you are staying in Saint Pierre this page contains useful instructions showing you how to charge your iPhone 5 by using a 230 volt 50Hz Type E St Pierrais power outlet, the Saint-Pierrais will use a CEE 7/5 French socket for power outlets. If travelling to Saint Pierre from a different country ensure that the iPhone 5 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure your iPhone 5 is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power converter to avoid the device from overheating whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5.
