Varying different combinations of voltages and standards can often be daunting when planning to visit a different country if you've never visited before. These instructions will show you exactly how to power the iPhone 6 when travelling to Anguilla by using a standard 110 volt 60Hz A Type plug outlet, the Anguillans will use NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plugs for wall outlets. If the iPhone 6 doesn't power up or recharges slowly when you are visiting Anguilla from a different country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which come from another country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) sometimes take longer to charge or won't turn on, check your device is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use. If you intend on staying at an Anguillan destination like North Side please read the Anguillan wikipedia page [1] for more information on visiting the area. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6.
