Lebanese power outlet

If organizing to travel to Lebanon it's helpful to know if you'll be able to power your vital electronics like mobiles or laptop computers that you are bringing along. But, by not knowing which power socket is being used in Lebanon you are likely to bring the wrong power adaptor, therefore leaving you having to buy a potentially overpriced power adaptor on arrival. Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning to stay in another country, especially for the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of common standards used in the world this guide shows exactly what to pick up in advance to charge your mobile phone in Lebanon. These instructions were written to prevent you needing to worry if you'll be able to charge your mobile phone abroad.This page has useful instructions which shows exactly how to power the mobile phone when you are in Lebanon by using the Type G, A, B, C or D 220 volt 50Hz power outlets, please note that Type G plug outlets are used by most Lebanese. Most power sockets will vary from region to region therefore we suggest that you read our Wiki Connections world power connections list where you'll find a complete list of powering devices in different destinations. If you are travelling to Lebanon from a different region check your mobile phone can be used with a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) ensure the mobile phone is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to avoid the device from overheating when charging it.

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.
