Slovenian power outlet

Various combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country especially to the first time traveller. This page contains step-by-step instructions which shows exactly what you'll need to supply power to the iPhone 6 when travelling to Slovenia by using their Type F or C Slovenian 230 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Most power supplies vary depending on which area you are travelling to therefore please read the Europe page for a full list of countries. If you are visiting Slovenia from a different region please make sure your iPhone 6 can accept a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure your device is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to prevent the device from being damaged when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6.
