The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Angola and Netherlands.
|Plug Types||C||B, A, C, F|
|Voltage||220V||230V, 127V, 220V|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||50Hz|
Angola uses Plug Type C.
In Netherlands there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
Netherlands also uses Socket Type C, which is used in Angola. If using an appliance that has a Type C Plug in the Type C Sockets of Netherlands, you will not need an adaptor.
Check if your appliance is compatible with the voltages used in Netherlands
The voltage, 127V, is used in parts of Netherlands but not in Angola.
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 voltages used in Netherlands (230V, 127V and 220V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, and you wish to use it in parts of Netherlands where this voltage is present, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Netherlands.
The voltage, 230V, which is also present in Angola, is not exactly the same to what's used in Netherlands, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer when using sockets with this voltage. Be sure to carefully check the voltage before using your appliance in sockets in Netherlands. You may need to ask a local, and electrician, or the local government to find out in situations when the power sockets are not labelled with their voltages.
The frequency found in Angola and Netherlands is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
