Summary

The table below summarises the plug types, voltage and frequency of electrical current in both Uganda and Hong Kong.

UgandaHong Kong
Plug TypesGG, D, M
Voltage240V220V
Frequency of electrical current50Hz50Hz

Plug Adaptors

Uganda uses Plug Type G.

Your Appliance has Plug Type G

In Hong Kong there's more than one socket type in use. You may require more than one adaptor.

Adaptor 1 of 2

Socket Type G
(Uganda)
to Plug Type D
(Hong Kong)

Adaptor 2 of 2

Socket Type G
(Uganda)
to Plug Type M
(Hong Kong)

Hong Kong also uses Socket Type G, which is used in Uganda. If using an appliance that has a Type G Plug in the Type G Sockets of Hong Kong, you will not need an adaptor.

Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Uganda (240V) and Hong Kong (220V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

Good to know

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency found in Uganda and Hong Kong is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
