Which plug adaptor do I need when travelling from Algeria to Cameroon?
The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Algeria and Cameroon.
|Plug Types||C, F||C, E|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||50Hz|
In Algeria there's more than one plug type in use.
What type of plug does your appliance have?
Your Appliance has Plug Type C
In Cameroon there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type C
(Algeria) to Plug Type E
Cameroon also uses Socket Type C, which is used in Algeria. If using an appliance that has a Type C Plug in the Type C Sockets of Cameroon, you will not need an adaptor.
Your Appliance has Plug Type F
In Cameroon there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
The voltages found in Algeria (230V) and Cameroon (220V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.
Good to know
Frequency of Electrical Current
The frequency found in Algeria and Cameroon is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
