Varying complicated combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning on travelling to a foreign country especially if you've never visited before. With only a handful of different types of common standards used in the world this guide shows exactly what to buy in advance to charge your iPhone 5C in Belarus. This page has been specifically written to prevent travellers worrying if they can power the iPhone 5C when going to Belarus.This guide shows what you'll need to supply power to your iPhone 5C when you're visiting Belarus by using the standard Type F or C Belarus 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. When you are travelling to Belarus from another region please make sure the iPhone 5C can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPhone 5C originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the iPhone 5C is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overloading when powering up. If you plan on visiting a city such as Minsk or Homel refer to the wikipedia.org page about Belarus [1] for more information on visiting the area. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.

What is the best power charger for the iPhone 5C in Belarus?

If you are travelling with more than just your iPhone 5C or visiting multiple countries then the best international travel power adapter for Belarus to buy is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Belarusians use two different types of plug sockets (F and C) and using a travel charger like this ensures that you are covered for type C. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts to 240 volts will mean that you can travel to over 100 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa just by changing the included plugs. If your iPhone 5C is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from quicker charging times with one of these power adapters, and additional compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Having a 4 port adapter means you can power multiple devices at once without needing to pack seperate power chargers or using up additional wall outlets. Only needing to pack a single international USB travel charger will also keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage. Due to their flexibility these types of adapters can be used when you return home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones and tablets without using up an additional wall outlet.

We suggest buying an adaptable power charger similar to this at an electronics retailer - the multipurpose travel adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries around the world on a daily basis.
