Some Keys For Using Your Devices In the Brazil
If you are thinking to travel to Brazil it is important that you know about the voltage, if necessary adapter, plugs, etc. In this article, we gather all the information regarding the types of plugs, power supply, electricity, voltage, and frequency of the alternating current for Brazil.
In Brazil, the electricity is at 220 volts, with a majority of hotels that are also 110 volts.
The common voltage in Brazil is 127/220 V. And the standard frequency is 60 Hz.
The plugs and sockets are of type N.
- The standard voltage: 127/220 V.
- The standard Frequency: 60 Hz.
- The pins are of T=type N.
The Voltage and The Frequency in Brazil:
You can use your electrical appliances in Brazil, as long as the voltage of your country is between 110V and 127V as in the United State, Canada and most countries in South America.
But if in your country the voltage is between 220V and 240V as in Spain, United Kingdom, Australia and the most of countries in Asia and Africa, you will need a converter or voltage transformer in Brazil.
To make sure check the label on your electrical appliance. If the label ‘INPUT’ specifies: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz ‘, it can be used in all countries of the world for tablets, laptops, cameras, cell phones or toothbrushes.
Be careful, if the frequency of the alternating current in Brazil (60 Hz) differs from your country of origin, we do not
advised you to use your electrical objects. You want to take a chance? Then try it.
The Travel Adapter for brazil:
You will need to consider what to take with you, to ensure you can use your personal electrical appliances safely whilst abroad. And this normally includes the use of a travel adaptor, which is a device that simply makes you plug any UK electrical appliance into a foreign electrical socket. But it is important to note that it does not convert the voltage or frequency.
Which plug adaptor do you need when traveling from the United States of America to Brazil?
The voltage, 220V, is used in parts of Brazil but not in the United States of America. Some appliances are compatible with multiple voltages.
But if your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, and you wish to use it in parts of Brazil where this standard voltage is present, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Brazil.
The voltage, 110V-120V, which is also present in the United States of America, is not exactly the same to what’s used in Brazil, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer when using sockets with this voltage.
But be sure to carefully check the voltage before using your appliance in sockets in Brazil. You may need to contact a local, an electrician, or the local government to find out in situations when the power sockets are not labeled with their voltages.
