The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Mauritania and Brazil.
|Plug Types||C||A, B, C|
|Frequency of electrical current||50Hz||60Hz|
Mauritania uses Plug Type C.
In Brazil there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
Socket Type C
(Mauritania) to Plug Type A
Socket Type C
(Mauritania) to Plug Type B
Brazil also uses Socket Type C, which is used in Mauritania. If using an appliance that has a Type C Plug in the Type C Sockets of Brazil, you will not need an adaptor.
Check if your appliance is compatible with the voltages used in Brazil
The voltage, 110V, is used in parts of Brazil but not in Mauritania.
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 voltages used in Brazil (110V and 220V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, and you wish to use it in parts of Brazil where this voltage is present, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Brazil.
The frequency of electrical current found in Mauritania (50Hz) differs to that found in Brazil (60Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
