Orissa is a magnificent state, full of natural beauty, exotic wildlife and splendid monuments. It is home to some of the most exquisite pieces of architecture in India and draws tourist from various parts of the world. It is obvious that those who come to Orissa, even for vacation purpose, will bring along a few electrical appliances, to ensure that their stay here is comfortable. The most commonly used appliances are iron, hair dryer, electric shaver, etc.
However, while making use of all these, they need to have information
on the electric current in the state. The voltage in Orissa is somewhere
around 240 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. In case the
tourists carry any appliance that is not compatible with this voltage,
they will need to use voltage converters that can easily adjust the
electric current. There are three types of electricity converters in
The first one is resistor-network converter that supports 50-1600
watts. Then, we have the transformer, supporting 50-100 watts. Last, but
not the least, is the combination converter that is a combination of the
above two. Another thing that is to be kept in mind is the plug used in
the appliance. If the plug is other than the one with two round pins or
three round pins (arranged in a triangle), then you will need to carry a
plug adapter also.
