Egypt – power supply and plugs

Tagged: , , , , ,

I was well prepared with plugs and adaptors and had no issues the entire time I travelled through Egypt. I took with me a Worldwide adaptor and that solved all my issues that I’ve experienced in the past. Not once did it let me down and found it the best universal adaptor I’ve used.

The power sockets in Egypt are the two prong style known as Worldwide C.

The voltage is 220V 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.

Sometimes the clunkyness of having a number of devices joined together means it can be tight plugging into the wall.

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. Leave a comment below.
