Charging iphone 5 in burma and thailand

Jump to last reply

I live in the US and have an iphone 5 with the usual charging cord.

I'd like to take this phone with me so that my family might contact me in the case of emergency. I realize that outlets in Asia are different than those in the US and that the current is 220 instead of 110.

I have been unable to get a straight answer from Apple or online as to what converter I need to be able to charge my iphone while in Burma and Thailand. A plug converter? A currency converter? Both?

Particular product recommendations, including those I could purchase at Amazon or at Radio Shack, much appreciated.

Chris
