If you are planning a holiday to Honduras it can be useful to know if you'll be able to charge any common devices like mobiles and tablets when you're there. By not knowing which power supply is being used in Honduras you could end up either weighing yourself down with unnecessary spare adaptors or bring the wrong power adaptor, leaving you having to buy or borrow a potentially overpriced adaptor when you're there. Various frequencies and region codes can often cause confusion when planning to stay in another country, especially if you've never visited before. This page was specifically written to prevent travellers needing to worry if they can charge their iPhone when abroad.This page contains instructions which shows what you'll need to charge the iPhone when you are in Honduras by using their Type B or A Honduran 110 volt 60Hz plug outlets, most Catrachos typically use the Type B sockets in their wall outlets. If the iPhone charges slowly or does not power up when travelling to Honduras from a different country check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Typically electrical devices which originated from a different country which use a higher voltage (for example 240 volts) either take longer to charge or won't power up, check your iPhone is dual voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to ensure proper use. If you intend to visit a Honduran city such as Tegucigalpa we recommend reading the Honduras Wikipedia web page [1] for more indepth details.

What is the best travel adapter for the iPhone in Honduras?

If you are travelling to multiple countries and bringing more than just your iPhone the best international travel charger for Honduras is a multiple USB port adapter which includes compatible plugs like a 4 port USB travel charger. Hondurans use two different standards of plug sockets (types B and A) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for type A.

Because these chargers come with interchangeable plugs and handle 100 volts to 240 volts it makes them ideal for multiple countries in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa simply by switching the supplied heads. If your type of iPhone can support Fast Charge then you'll benefit from faster recharging times with one of these USB travel chargers and additional compatibility with certain power demanding devices like tablets.

This will allow you to recharge multiple devices at once without needing to buy multiple power chargers. Because you are only bringing a single USB travel charger will also keep the weight down, making it ideal to store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being on hand for charging your iPhone at the airport or on a flight. Because of their flexibility these types of power chargers can be used when back at home not just abroad so when you're not travelling they can be used under your bedside table charging multiple tablets, smartphones and speakers and using only a single power outlet.

If you travel to different continents we recommend buying an adaptable power adapter of this nature online. The power adapter illustrated here is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested for charging multiple USB devices in numerous countries on a daily basis.
