Charging any mobile phone from a power outlet in Togo

How to connect a Togolese power outlet to any mobile phone

Togolese power outlet

Varying complicated standards and plugs can all be confusing when planning on visiting a new country especially if you've never visited before. If visiting Togo the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the mobile phone using the 220 volt 50Hz C Type Togolese plug outlet, the Togolese will use a Europlug for charging. When travelling to Togo from a different region ensure the mobile phone can be used with a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check that your mobile phone is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to stop the device from overloading during charging.

These instructions are for a generic mobile phone and assume the phone has a standard micro USB port, Bluetooth connectivity and a headphone socket. For all the latest phones please visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
