Various combinations of region codes and voltages can all lead to confusion when planning to travel to a new country, especially if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used throughout the world this guide tells you exactly what to pick up in advance to power your Samsung Galaxy S4 . These instructions have been specifically written to prepare travellers wanting to power their Samsung Galaxy S4 when staying in Guyana.When you are planning a holiday to Guyana this page contains useful instructions showing charging the Samsung Galaxy S4 by using their standard G, A, B or D type Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz power outlets. Most power will change regionally therefore we suggest reading the South America page for a complete list of regions and countries. When travelling to Guyana from a different country please check the Samsung Galaxy S4 can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your Samsung Galaxy S4 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overheating during charging. If you're planning on taking a trip to a Guyanese city like Georgetown or Linden we also suggest reading the Guyana page on Wikipedia [1] for more details.

We recommend referring 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 from the Samsung Galaxy range which will connect to the Guyanese power outlet.
