St Lucian power outlet

Different combinations of standards and plugs can all be daunting when planning to travel to another country especially to the first time traveller. The following step by step guide shows you how to charge your mobile phone when you're in Saint Lucia using their standard 240 volt 50Hz Type G St Lucian power outlet, the St Lucians will use a 13 amp plug for charging. You will find power will differ depending on which area you are travelling to so we recommend reading the North America page for a complete list of countries. If you are visiting Saint Lucia from a different country please ensure your mobile phone can be used with a 240 volt supply. If the mobile phone was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v ensure that the device is dual-voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to stop the device from over-heating during charging.

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 all the latest phones please visit the Mobile phones page for a full list of makes and models.
