Complicated voltages and standards can often be confusing when planning to travel to another country especially for the first time traveller. The following simple guide will show you what you'll need to supply power to your mobile phone in Dominica by using the standard Type G or D 230 volt 50Hz power outlets, most Dominicansd will typically use the Type G plug outlets. When you are visiting Dominica from a different region please ensure the mobile phone can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.
