The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Azores and Antigua.
|Plug Types||B, C, F||A, B|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||60Hz|
In Azores there's more than one plug type in use.
What type of plug does your appliance have?
In Antigua there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type B
(Azores) to Plug Type A
Antigua also uses Socket Type B, which is used in Azores. If using an appliance that has a Type B Plug in the Type B Sockets of Antigua, you will not need an adaptor.
In Antigua there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
The voltages found in Azores (220V) and Antigua (230V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.
The frequency of electrical current found in Azores (50Hz) differs to that found in Antigua (60Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
