How to connect a Jersey power outlet to the iPhone 4

Jersey power outlet

Various voltages and standards can often be confusing when planning to travel to another country, especially for the first time traveller. This guide shows what you'll need to charge the iPhone 4 when staying in Jersey using their 230 volt 50Hz G Type plug outlet, with the Channel Islanders using a 13 amp plug for charging. If travelling to Jersey from another country please ensure the iPhone 4 can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v make sure the iPhone 4 is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from overheating when charging it. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4.

What is the best power adapter for recharging the iPhone 4 in Jersey?

When you are travelling with more than just your iPhone 4 then the best international travel power adapter for Jersey is a multiple USB charger which includes swappable plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. As these types of chargers come with interchangeable plugs and can handle from 100 volts - 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries around the world just by changing the supplied heads over. If your iPhone 4 is compatible with Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from much faster recharging times by using one of these types of power chargers plus compatibility with more power hungry devices like tablets.

Unlike other travel adapters having a four port charger will also allow you to recharge more than one device simultaneously without needing to buy seperate power chargers for your trip or occupying additional power outlets. Only bringing a single travel charger will keep the overall size and weight down, making it ideal to fold up in hand luggage as well as being on hand for charging your iPhone 4 at an airport or on the plane. Because of their space saving flexibility these types of adapters can be used when back at home so when you're not travelling they can sit under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, phones and speakers without needing an additional power outlet.

We suggest buying this type of flexible power adapter at an electronics retailer. The power adapter illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for recharging multiple USB devices in numerous different countries.
