What is the best travel adapter for the iPhone 6 in Djibouti?

When you are travelling to multiple countries or bringing more than just your iPhone 6 then the best international travel adapter for Djibouti to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger [8]. Djiboutians use two different standards of plug sockets (types E and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these chargers are supplied with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts - 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your model of iPhone 6 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices do) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters, plus additional compatibility with certain power hungry devices like tablets. This will allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to buy seperate travel chargers or occupying additional wall sockets. Only packing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up and store in hand luggage while travelling. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple phones, tablets and speakers with just a single plug socket.
