The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Australia and American Samoa.
|Plug Types||I||A, B, F, I|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||60Hz|
Australia uses Plug Type I.
In American Samoa there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
American Samoa also uses Socket Type I, which is used in Australia. If using an appliance that has a Type I Plug in the Type I Sockets of American Samoa, you will not need an adaptor.
The voltages found in Australia and American Samoa 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 American Samoa (120V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in American Samoa.
The frequency of electrical current found in Australia (50Hz) differs to that found in American Samoa (60Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
