      If the standard voltage in your country is between 220V and 240V you can use your electric appliances in Bali. but if you are not sure if this , you can check a label on your appliance. It will state the voltage and frequency. If you find ‘INPUT: 100-240V, 50-60 Hz’, it can be used in all countries of the world. This is mostly in the case of chargers for laptops, photo cameras, cell phones, shaving machines and electric toothbrushes.

      And if the frequency of your country differs from that in Bali (50 Hz),it is not advised to use your appliance. Otherwise if there is no voltage difference, you could try to use the appliance for a short time. Be careful with Rotating, moving and time related appliances like clocks and electric fan heaters.

The travel adapter in Bali

         In Bali you can expect the 2 pin socket and plug as used in larger parts of Europe. Whether you are staying in a private villa or a hotel you should be able to get an adapter if you ask for one. The pins are round, not flat or rectangular .

If you come from Australia, Japan, United State of America, Malaysia, United Kingdom, Canada, some country in Africa , and Singapore you will most likely simply need a plug adapter .

      In the other hand If you bring an adapter from abroad then make sure that it fits into a round socket. There are some adapters that come with a square plug which would not fit into the sockets on Bali. Because the sockets are slight into the wall, they are not flat-even with the wall !
