Plug Adaptors

In Anguilla there's more than one plug type in use.

What type of plug does your appliance have?

Your Appliance has Plug Type A

In Bolivia there's more than one socket type in use.

You will need this adaptor:

Socket Type A
(Anguilla)
to Plug Type C
(Bolivia)

Bolivia also uses Socket Type A, which is used in Anguilla. If using an appliance that has a Type A Plug in the Type A Sockets of Bolivia, you will not need an adaptor.

Your Appliance has Plug Type B

In Bolivia there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.

Adaptor 1 of 2

Socket Type B
(Anguilla)

Warnings

Voltage

Check if your appliance is compatible with the voltages used in Bolivia

The voltages, 220V and 230V, are used in parts of Bolivia but not in Anguilla.

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

Appliance label showing a voltage of 120 volts
This appliance is only compatible with a single voltage as only one voltage (120V) is printed on the label.
Appliance label showing a tolerable voltage range of 100 to 240 volts
This appliance is compatible with a range of voltages as it shows two voltage figures with a dash in between them. In this example, the appliance may be plugged into any outlet ranging from 100 to 240V without a voltage transformer, though a socket adaptor would still be needed if the sockets don't match.
Appliance label showing two tolerable voltages: 115 volts and 230 volts
This appliance is compatible two voltages as it shows two voltage figures with a slash between them. Appliances displaying labels like this will have a physical switch located on them somewhere, allowing you to switch between the two voltages shown here. In this example, the appliance may be plugged into an outlet of 115V or 240V (provided the switch is in the correct position) without a voltage transformer, though a socket adaptor would still be needed if the sockets don't match.

Is your appliance compatible with the voltages used in Bolivia (115V, 220V and 230V)?

If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, and you wish to use it in parts of Bolivia where these voltages are present, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Bolivia.

Considerations

Voltage

The voltage, 115V, which is also present in Anguilla, is not exactly the same to what's used in Bolivia, 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 Bolivia. 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.

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency of electrical current found in Anguilla (60Hz) differs to that found in Bolivia (50Hz).

Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:

  • Electric clocks: Some electric clocks use the frequency of electrical current to measure time. If the clock is designed for one frequency, but used with another, time shifts could be experienced.
  • Appliances using motors: If there is a motor load associated with an appliance, the frequency governs the speed in revolutions of the motor. This could mean that the motor will spin faster, or slower than intended and could have a detrimental effect in the appliance's operation. This is of particular concern in power tools and other machinery that uses motors, so if you must use these, you should seek access to a frequency converter.
