Liberian power outlet

Complicated region codes and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in another country, especially if you've never been there before. This isn't as complicated as it appears, with only a handful of different types of sockets used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what you'll need to pick up in advance to power your Samsung Galaxy S4 . If you're staying in Liberia this page has instructions showing you charging the Samsung Galaxy S4 using the Type B, A,C, E or F Liberian 240 volt 50Hz power outlets. If you are visiting Liberia from another country double check the Samsung Galaxy S4 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) make sure that 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.

Please refer to the Samsung Galaxy S4 instruction manual [2] for further information on the operation of the mobile phone and visit the Galaxy page for more phones from the Samsung Galaxy range which will connect to the Liberian power outlet.

What is the best travel charger for recharging a Samsung Galaxy S4 in Liberia?

If travelling to more than one country or bringing more than just your Samsung Galaxy S4 then the best travel adapter for Liberia is a multiple USB port adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [13]. Liberians use five different standards of wall outlets (types B, A,C, E and F) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for both types A and C.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by changing the included plugs over. If your Samsung Galaxy S4 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of travel adapters along with support for more power demanding devices like tablets.

Having a four port adapter means you can recharge more than one device at once without needing to bring seperate travel adapters. Because you are only packing a single lightweight travel charger will also keep the size down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand baggage while travelling as well as being convenient for recharging your Samsung Galaxy S4 at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and e-readers with just a single wall outlet.

We suggest searching for this type of flexible travel charger online. The multipurpose power adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger [13] which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
