When traveling to Antigua from another nation, use the USB 30-pin Apple cable with a two-pin Type A power charger to charge the iPhone from an Antiguan power outlet and charging the iPhone with a three-pin Type B power plug. An adapter is required if you plan to use a European two-pin plug.
In addition to hotels and hostels, you can also charge your iPhone at some public charging stations. These are called "Cirqut" facilities in English and French. There are currently ten of these public charging points in Antigua, including ones at Heritage Park Zoo and Vauxhall Gardens. Each Cirqut station requires a $0.50 USD fee for twenty-four hour access. To use one of these stations, you will need an EE passport card or a Visa card. Cards without a chip cannot be used at this station.
Cirquts are located outside of major hotels and restaurants and are easy to find. They usually look like this: A black box on top of a white pole has an opening in the middle where you insert your phone. When you push the button, a green light comes on to indicate that your phone is being charged.
These public charging points are a great option for travelers who do not have access to electrical outlets in their rooms.
To charge the iPhone from a French power outlet, you'll need a Type C USB power converter and a USB to Apple 30 pin connection. Normally, Apple includes this USB cord with the iPhone. Begin by inserting the Type C USB power converter into the French outlet. Then connect the iPhone to the converter using the included cable and battery charger. The charger's white plug goes into the wall, while the black plug goes into the phone.
If you want to use your own charging cable, Apple provides three different lengths of it: one for home use, one for office use, and one that can be cut to length.
The iPhone cannot be charged from British or Italian power outlets. However, it will work with German power outlets if there is a spare terminal on the side of the socket. An alternative solution is to buy a European-style adapter and a US-style adapter for $9 and $11 respectively. These adapters can be used to convert voltage levels between countries with similar circuits but different voltages such as UK 120 volts and USA 240 volts. For example, an English speaker might call it "two thirds full" when his or her phone has 80% capacity left.
A USB connection cord and a USB power adapter are included with your iPhone. Plug the dock connection into the dock port at the bottom of your iPhone to charge the battery. Connect the USB end to the USB power adapter, and then connect the power adapter to an electrical outlet. The iPhone beeps to indicate that it is charging. It will stay connected to the power adapter until the battery charge reaches 100%.
