The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Azores and Ecuador.
|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 Ecuador there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type B
(Azores) to Plug Type A
Ecuador 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 Ecuador, you will not need an adaptor.
In Ecuador there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
Check if your appliance is compatible with the voltages used in Ecuador
The voltages, 120V and 127V, are used in parts of Ecuador but not in Azores.
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 Ecuador (120V and 127V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, and you wish to use it in parts of Ecuador where these voltages are present, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Ecuador.
The frequency of electrical current found in Azores (50Hz) differs to that found in Ecuador (60Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
