Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on visiting another country, especially if you've never been there before. This guide shows how to charge the Samsung Galaxy S4 when staying in Mozambique by using their F, C or M type 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. When you are visiting Mozambique from a different country check that the Samsung Galaxy S4 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the Samsung Galaxy S4 originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) check that your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional power transformer to prevent the device from being damaged during charging. If you intend on visiting a place like Maputo we also recommend referring to the Wikipedia.org page about Mozambique [1] for more indepth details prior to the location.

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