Plug Adaptors

Belarus uses Plug Type C.

Your Appliance has Plug Type C

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

Adaptor 1 of 2

Socket Type C

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

Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Belarus (220V) and Afghanistan (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 Belarus and Afghanistan is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
