Complicated region codes and voltages can often be confusing when planning on visiting a foreign country, especially to the first time traveller. These instructions have been specifically written to prevent you having to worry if you'll be able to charge the iPhone 6 Plus when staying in Guyana.This step-by-step guide shows you exactly what you'll need to charge the iPhone 6 Plus when you're travelling to Guyana using the G, A, B or D type Guyanese 220 volt 60Hz power outlets. Most power is different depending on which area you are in so we recommend reading the power supplies and South America page for a full list of countries. When visiting Guyana from another country ensure your iPhone 6 Plus can be used with a 240 volt supply. If your iPhone 6 Plus originated in a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110v) ensure your device is dual voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up. These instructions assume that you have installed Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 6 Plus.

What is the best power adapter for the iPhone 6 Plus in Guyana?

If you are travelling with more than your iPhone 6 Plus then the best travel charger for Guyana is a multiple USB port charger which includes compatible plugs such as a 4 port USB travel charger. There are four standards of wall outlets that Guyanese use (types G, A, B and D) and using a travel adapter like this ensures that you are covered for both types A and G.

Because these types of chargers come with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts will mean you can travel to over 100 countries in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa simply by switching the supplied plugs over. If your iPhone 6 Plus can support Fast Charge (note not all USB devices can) then you'll benefit from much quicker recharging times with one of these USB power adapters, plus additional support for certain power hungry devices.

Unlike other travel chargers having a 4 port charger will allow you to power multiple devices at the same time without needing to pack multiple travel chargers on your Guyanese trip. By only needing a single USB travel charger will keep the size and weight down, making it perfect to fold up and store in hand baggage whilst travelling as well as being suitable for charging your iPhone 6 Plus at an airport or on the plane. Due to their space saving flexibility these types of travel chargers can be used when back at home as well as abroad so when you're not on holiday they can be used overnight charging multiple tablets, phones and e-readers with just a single plug socket.

If you travel regularly we suggest searching for this type of flexible power adapter at an electronics retailer. The multipurpose travel charger illustrated below is the 4 Port USB Wall Charger which has been successfully tested with multiple USB devices in numerous different countries around the world on a daily basis.
