Different combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country especially to the first time traveller. The following step by step guide will show you exactly how to charge your Samsung Galaxy S4 when you are travelling to Anguilla using their standard 110 volt 60Hz Type A power outlet, the Anguillans will use a NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plug for power outlets. Power supplies are different depending on which area you taking a trip to so we recommend that you read the Wiki Connections world power supplies list for a full list showing powering devices in different regions and countries. If your Samsung Galaxy S4 slowly recharges or doesn't turn on when you are travelling to Anguilla from another country then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Electrical devices which come from a different country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts can take longer to charge or won't turn on, check that the device is dual-voltage (usually marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use. If you are planning to visit a city like North Side we also recommend reading the Anguilla Wikipedia web page [1] for further information on the location.

Refer to the Samsung Galaxy S4 instruction manual [2] for more information on the operation of the mobile phone and visit the Galaxy page for more phones in the Samsung Galaxy range which will connect to the Anguillan power outlet.

When travelling to more than one country then the best international travel charger for Anguilla to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger [6].

Because these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa just by switching the included heads over. If your Samsung Galaxy S4 can support Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much quicker charging times by using one of these types of power adapters, and compatibility with more power hungry devices. Having a 4 port charger will also allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to bring seperate power adapters. By only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will keep the size down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for recharging your Samsung Galaxy S4 at the airport or on a flight.
