Complicated region codes and voltages can all be daunting when planning on visiting another country especially if you've never been there before. If planning a trip to Falkland Islands the following useful instructions show how to charge your iPhone 4 by using their standard 240 volt 50Hz G Type wall outlet, the Falkland Islanders will use a 13 amp plug for power outlets. You will find power supplies vary depending on which country you are travelling to so please read the power supplies and South America page for a full list of regions and countries. When visiting Falkland Islands from another region ensure that your iPhone 4 can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone 4 was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) make sure your iPhone 4 is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overheating whilst powering it. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4.
