Various combinations of voltages and region codes can often be confusing when planning on travelling to a new country especially for the first time traveller. With only a handful of different types of common standards being used in the world this guide tells you exactly what you'll need to buy in advance to charge your iPhone 5 . This page has step by step instructions showing what you'll need to power your iPhone 5 when you are in Tajikistan using the standard F or C type Tajikistani 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. If you are visiting Tajikistan from another country please check the iPhone 5 can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the iPhone 5 is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional transformer to prevent the device from overloading when powering up. If you intend to visit a place like Dushanbe or Khujand we recommend referring to the Tajikistan country wikipedia page [1] for more details prior to visiting the location.

What is the best travel charger for recharging the iPhone 5 in Tajikistan?

When travelling with more than just your iPhone 5 and visiting more than one country the best international travel charger for Tajikistan to buy is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. There are two standards of plug sockets that Tajikistanis use (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

As these chargers come with interchangeable pins and handle from 100 - 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by changing the heads. If your type of iPhone 5 supports Fast Charge (not all USB devices will) then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these types of USB power adapters plus additional support for certain power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port adapter means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate travel adapters or occupying additional wall sockets. Because you are only bringing a single lightweight USB travel charger will help keep the overall weight and size down, making it perfect to fold up in hand baggage as well as being suitable for charging your iPhone 5 at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving versatility these types of chargers can be used when you return home not just abroad so when you're not on holiday they can sit overnight charging multiple phones and tablets using only a single power outlet.

We recommend searching for this type of flexible travel adapter at an electronics retailer. The travel charger illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been tested successfully for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries around the world.
