Socket Type G
(Belize) to Plug Type D
Zimbabwe also uses Socket Type G, which is used in Belize. If using an appliance that has a Type G Plug in the Type G Sockets of Zimbabwe, you will not need an adaptor.
Check if your appliance is compatible with the voltage used in Zimbabwe
The voltage, 110V, which is present in Belize, is significantly different to what's used in Zimbabwe.
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 Zimbabwe (220V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Zimbabwe.
The frequency of electrical current found in Belize (60Hz) differs to that found in Zimbabwe (50Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
