When organizing a holiday it's useful to know if you can use your essential gadgets like cell phones or tablets when you arrive. But by not knowing which wall socket is used in Saint Vincent you could pack the wrong power charger, thereby leaving you needing to buy or borrow a suitable power adaptor on arrival that might be incompatible and cause damage to your iPhone 6. Various combinations of region codes and sockets can often be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. If travelling to Saint Vincent this page has useful instructions showing charging the iPhone 6 by using their Type G, C, E, I or K 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets, you will discover a majority of St Vincentians normally use Type G power outlets. If you are visiting Saint Vincent from another country make sure that the iPhone 6 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone 6 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts double check the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from being damaged when charging it. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6.
