The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Belize and St. Lucia (Winward Islands).
|Belize||St. Lucia (Winward Islands)|
|Plug Types||B, G||G|
|Frequency of electrical current||60Hz||50Hz|
In Belize there's more than one plug type in use.
What type of plug does your appliance have?
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type B
(Belize) to Plug Type G
(St. Lucia (Winward Islands))
No adaptor needed
St. Lucia (Winward Islands) uses Socket Type G, which is the same as the plug type of your appliances from Belize. You will not need an adaptor.
The voltage, 110V, which is present in Belize, is significantly different to what's used in St. Lucia (Winward Islands).
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 St. Lucia (Winward Islands) (240V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in St. Lucia (Winward Islands).
The voltage, 220V, which is also present in Belize, is not exactly the same to what's used in St. Lucia (Winward Islands), but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer when using sockets with this voltage. Be sure to carefully check the voltage before using your appliance in sockets in St. Lucia (Winward Islands). You may need to ask a local, and electrician, or the local government to find out in situations when the power sockets are not labelled with their voltages.
The frequency of electrical current found in Belize (60Hz) differs to that found in St. Lucia (Winward Islands) (50Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
