Georgian power outlet

Varying different combinations of frequencies and standards can often be daunting when planning on staying in a new country to the first time traveller. The following useful guide shows exactly how to power the mobile phone when you're visiting Georgia by using the standard F or C type 220 volt 50Hz plug outlets. Power supplies vary regionally so we suggest that you read the Wiki Connections global power sockets guide for a full list showing powering devices in different regions. When you are visiting Georgia from a different country please ensure that the mobile phone can accept a 240v supply. If it originated in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts make sure your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter 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 please visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
