Trinidad power outlet

Various combinations of frequencies and standards can all be confusing when planning on staying in a foreign country especially if you've never visited before. This page is a step by step guide telling you how to power your iPhone 6 Plus when you are visiting Trinidad using their standard Type B or A 115 volt 60Hz plug outlets, you'll find a majority of Trinidadians will use the Type B plugs in their power outlets. If your iPhone 6 Plus charges slowly or does not power up when you are visiting Trinidad from a different country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally devices which come from a different country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check that your iPhone 6 Plus is a dual voltage device (you'll find these are usually indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to ensure proper use. If you intend on taking a trip to a place like Port of Spain or San Fernando read the Trinidad Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth details on travelling to the location. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
