Anguillan power outlet

Different region codes and voltages can all be daunting when planning on travelling to another country if you've never visited before. This page is a simple guide telling you exactly what you'll need to power your iPhone 3GS when going to Anguilla using a standard 110 volt 60Hz A Type Anguillan power outlet, with the Anguillans using NEMA 1-15 ungrounded plugs for power outlets. You'll find power supplies will vary depending on which country you are travelling to so please read the power supplies and South America page for a full list of countries. If the iPhone 3GS charges slowly or does not power up when you are visiting Anguilla from another region then check that it is compatible with a 110 volt power supply. Devices which originated from another country which use a higher voltage such as 240 volts either take longer to charge or won't turn on, so check the device is dual voltage (usually indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional converter to ensure proper use. These instructions assume that you are running Apple iOS 6 or greater on the iPhone 3GS.
