Which plug adaptor do I need when travelling from Algeria to Gabon?
The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Algeria and Gabon.
|Plug Types||C, F||C|
|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
No adaptor needed
Gabon uses Socket Type C, which is the same as the plug type of your appliances from Algeria. You will not need an adaptor.
Your Appliance has Plug Type F
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type F
(Algeria) to Plug Type C
The voltages found in Algeria (230V) and Gabon (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 Gabon is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
