The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Benin and Burundi.
|Plug Types||E||C, E|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||50Hz|
Benin uses Plug Type E.
In Burundi there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type E
(Benin) to Plug Type C
Burundi also uses Socket Type E, which is used in Benin. If using an appliance that has a Type E Plug in the Type E Sockets of Burundi, you will not need an adaptor.
The voltage found in Benin and Burundi is exactly the same (220V). You will not need a transformer.
The frequency found in Benin and Burundi is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
