Guadeloupe power outlet

Varying different combinations of region codes and sockets can all be confusing when planning on visiting a new country if you've never been there before. If you're staying in Guadeloupe these useful instructions show how to power the iPhone 5S using the standard D, C or E type 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. Most power sources will vary depending on which country you travelling to therefore we recommend reading the WikiConnections global power supplies list for a full list of powering devices in different regions and countries. When you are visiting Guadeloupe from another country please double check your iPhone 5S can accept a 240 volt supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure that your device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from over-heating when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5S.

What is the best power charger for recharging the iPhone 5S in Guadeloupe?

When travelling with more than your iPhone 5S then the best international travel charger for Guadeloupe to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [10]. Guadeloupians use three different standards of plug sockets (types D, C and E) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for type C.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your type of iPhone 5S can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster recharging times by using one of these travel adapters and additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets.

This will allow you to recharge more than one device at once without needing to buy multiple travel chargers. Because you are only packing a single USB travel charger will also keep the weight down, making it ideal to fold up in hand baggage while travelling and on hand for charging your iPhone 5S at the airport or on a flight. Because of their flexibility these types of power chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and e-readers and using only a single power outlet.

If you travel to Guadeloupe we recommend buying a multipurpose power adapter of this nature at an electronics retailer, the power adapter illustrated here is the iKits 4 Port USB Wall Charger [10] which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
