The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Algeria and Japan.
|Plug Types||C, F||A, B|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||50Hz, 60Hz|
In Algeria there's more than one plug type in use.
What type of plug does your appliance have?
In Japan there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
The voltages found in Algeria and Japan are significantly different.
Some appliances are compatible with multiple voltages. To find out if your appliance is one of them, check the appliance label and/or instruction booklet.
Is your appliance compatible with the voltage used in Japan (100V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Japan.
The frequency of electrical current found in Algeria (50Hz) differs to those found in Japan (50Hz and 60Hz).
The frequency of electrical current in Japan varies from one location from the next. Eastern Japan (including Tokyo, Yokohama, Tohoku and Hokkaido) uses 50Hz while Western Japan (including Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Shikoku and Kyushu) uses 60Hz.
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
