The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Pakistan and Nigeria.
|Plug Types||C, D||D, G|
|Frequency of electrical current||60Hz||50Hz|
In Pakistan there's more than one plug type in use.
What type of plug does your appliance have?
In Nigeria there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.
In Nigeria there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type D
(Pakistan) to Plug Type G
Nigeria also uses Socket Type D, which is used in Pakistan. If using an appliance that has a Type D Plug in the Type D Sockets of Nigeria, you will not need an adaptor.
The voltages found in Pakistan (220V) and Nigeria (240V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.
The frequency of electrical current found in Pakistan (60Hz) differs to that found in Nigeria (50Hz).
Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequencies. Some exceptions are:
