The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Angola and Vietnam.
|Plug Types||C||A, C, G|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||50Hz|
Angola uses Plug Type C.
In Vietnam there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
Socket Type C
(Angola) to Plug Type A
Socket Type C
(Angola) to Plug Type G
Vietnam 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 Vietnam, you will not need an adaptor.
Check if your appliance is compatible with the voltages used in Vietnam
The voltage, 127V, is used in parts of Vietnam 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.
See examples of appliance labels
Is your appliance compatible with the voltages used in Vietnam (127V and 220V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, and you wish to use it in parts of Vietnam where this voltage is present, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Vietnam.
The frequency found in Angola and Vietnam is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
