I have to say that I'm not sure that it is safe to use the chargr in an adaptor. I seem to remember hearing that it is not a good idea to use a transformer in a transformer, which is what you would be doing. Someone with a bit more technical savvy may be able to clarify there.

A phone charger for your phone brand can be purchased quite cheaply. You could also consider borrowing from an American guest or member of staff - their charger is fine in Ja.

The U in USB stands for Universal - so that will work anywhere LOL

I just charged my US phone in the UK with an adaptor and all is well. Having said that, the adaptor should also include a voltage converter.

most mobile phone and laptop chargers will operate off of 110 or 220 volt inputs. You need to check your chargers. Jamaica runs 110 volts with a US style plug in the wall outlets. If your chargers say they will take input voltage from 110-220, all you need is the plug style adapter. If your charger says it needs input voltage of 220, then you will need the voltage converter. Hope this helps. PLease let me know if you have any other questions.
