Different combinations of voltages and standards can all be confusing when planning on visiting a new country if you've never been there before. This page contains step-by-step instructions showing exactly what you'll need to charge the iPhone 6 Plus when you are visiting The Isle of Man using their standard 240 volt 50Hz Type G plug outlet, with the Manx using a 13 amp plug for wall outlets. If travelling to The Isle of Man from a different country ensure that the iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240v supply. If the iPhone 6 Plus was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v ensure that the device is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional transformer to avoid the device from being damaged when powering up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.
