What power sockets are used in Zimbabwe?
In Zimbabwe, the power sockets used are of Type D and Type G.
Type D sockets have three round pins in a triangular pattern. They are rated for a voltage of 220-240 volts and a frequency of 50 hertz. This type of socket is commonly used in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and other countries.
Type G sockets, also known as British Standard BS-1363, are rectangular in shape and have three rectangular pins. They are rated for a voltage of 220-240 volts and a frequency of 50 hertz. This type of socket is commonly used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and other countries.
It’s worth noting that while Type D sockets are still prevalent in some older buildings in Zimbabwe, the country has been transitioning towards using Type G sockets in recent years.
If you’re planning to visit Zimbabwe, it’s advisable to carry a universal travel adapter that can accommodate both Type D and Type G sockets to ensure compatibility with the local power outlets.
