The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Algeria and Burkina Faso.
|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?
In Burkina Faso there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type C
(Algeria) to Plug Type E
Burkina Faso 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 Burkina Faso, you will not need an adaptor.
In Burkina Faso there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
The voltages found in Algeria (230V) and Burkina Faso (220V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.
The frequency found in Algeria and Burkina Faso is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
