Seychellois power outlet

When organizing to travel it can often be helpful to know in advance if you'll be able to power your common electronics such as mobile phones or tablets when you're there. Without knowing which plug socket is used in Seychelles you are more likely to bring the wrong adaptor, therefore leaving you having to purchase a potentially expensive charger on arrival that could be incompatible and damage your iPhone 5C. Different region codes and voltages can all be confusing when planning on staying in another country especially if you've never been there before. If planning a trip to Seychelles the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the iPhone 5C by using their standard 240 volt 50Hz Type G wall outlet, the Seychellois will use a 13 amp plug for charging. You'll discover that power sockets differ depending on which area you are travelling to so please read the list of World power supplies for a complete list of regions and countries. When you are travelling to Seychelles from another country ensure that your iPhone 5C can accept a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone 5C was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110v ensure your iPhone 5C is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overloading when powering up. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 5C.
