Plug Adaptors

Bahrain uses Plug Type G.

Your Appliance has Plug Type G

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

You will need this adaptor:

Socket Type G

to Plug Type C

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

Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Bahrain (230V) and Gibraltar (240V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

Good to know

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency found in Bahrain and Gibraltar is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
