Various combinations of standards and plugs can all lead to confusion when planning to stay in another country if you've never visited before. These guidelines were specifically written to prepare visitors wanting to power their mobile phone abroad.If you're planning a holiday to Serbia these instructions show how to supply power to the mobile phone by using their standard Type F or C 230 volt 50Hz wall outlets. You will find power supplies are different depending on which area you are visiting so please read the power supplies and Europe page for a full list of countries. When travelling to Serbia from a different country please ensure your mobile phone can be charged using a 240v supply. If the mobile phone was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check the mobile phone is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) else you may need to use an additional voltage converter to avoid the device from overloading during charging. If you're planning on staying in a place like Belgrade or Novi Sad please refer to the Serbian country page on Wikipedia [1] for more indepth information.

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.

What is the best power adapter for any mobile phone in Serbia?

If you are travelling with more than your mobile phone the best international travel adapter for Serbia to buy is a multiple USB adapter which includes swappable plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. Serbs use two different types of power outlets (types F and C) and bringing this ensures that you are covered for type C.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 volts to 240 volts will mean you can travel to multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by changing the heads. If your type of mobile phone is compatible with Fast Charge then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times by using one of these USB power adapters, plus additional support for more power hungry devices.

Having a four port adapter means you can recharge multiple devices simultaneously without needing to bring seperate travel chargers on your Serbian trip. By only packing a single USB travel charger will help keep the overall size down, making it perfect to store in hand luggage and on hand for recharging your mobile phone at an airport or on the flight. Due to their space saving versatility these types of chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple smartphones, tablets and speakers without using up an additional wall outlet.

For those travelling to Serbia we recommend buying this type of versatile power adapter at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose power charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for powering multiple USB devices in numerous foreign countries.
