Anguillan power outlet

Various combinations of voltages and region codes can all lead to confusion when planning to visit another country for the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used in the world this article shows exactly what to purchase in advance to power your iPhone 4S . This page contains useful instructions showing you what you'll need to power your iPhone 4S when staying in Anguilla using the 110 volt 60Hz Type A Anguillan power outlet, with the Anguillans using NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plugs for charging. If the iPhone 4S charges slowly or does not power up when you are visiting Anguilla from another country please check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Normally electrical devices which originated from another country which use a higher voltage such as 220 volts sometimes take longer to charge or won't power up, so check the device is a dual voltage device (you'll find these are normally marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to ensure proper use. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4S.
