Fiji – power supply and plugs


Tagged: , , , , ,

If you’re coming from Australia, New Zealand or Britain, the power supply and plugs are easy. If you’re coming from other destinations, you’ll need to do bring the appropriate plugs and convertors.

Most of the larger hotels an resorts in Fiji offer universal outlets for both 240v or 110v appliances or 11ov adaptors. If you are coming from the U.S. you’ll need to source an Australian 3 pin design.

Note that many cameras, modern laptops, smart phones etc. that require charging accept power inputs that range from 110v – 220v and therefore do not require a power convertor.

And now for voltage. It’s 240V and the standard frequency is 50Hz. For Australians, Kiwis & Brits, that means you can take your electrical appliances without a voltage adaptor. For everyone else, you’ll need to investigate an adaptor for the current. They aren’t too expensive and easily sourced at airports if required.

I never saw any adaptors in stores so bring what you need from home. If in doubt, bring all the adaptors you have. They weigh very little and you’ll have peace of mind that one of them will work.

I’ve also written an article on how I carry my chargers and earphones. Click here to read it.

Now it’s your turn. Share your stories of making adaptors and voltage work overseas.
