Plug Adaptors

Egypt uses Plug Type C.

Your Appliance has Plug Type C

No adaptor needed

Iran uses Socket Type C, which is the same as the plug type of your appliances from Egypt. You will not need an adaptor.



The voltages found in Egypt (220V) and Iran (230V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.
