Moldovan power outlet

Various region codes and plug types can all be daunting when planning to stay in a different country if you've never visited before. When you're going to travel to Moldova the following instructions show charging your mobile phone using the standard types F or C Moldovan 220 volt 50Hz wall outlets. When you are visiting Moldova from a different country check your mobile phone can accept a 240v supply. If the mobile phone originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts ensure that the mobile phone is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) else you may need to use an additional transformer to stop the device from overheating when powering up.

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 a specific mobile phone visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
