tage Output:-240 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second
Himachal Pradesh is one of the most visited destinations in India, as
far as tourism is concerned. Such is the popularity of the state that
people come here from far away countries, to revel in its natural
splendor. If you are one of those who are coming to Himachal Pradesh
from any city outside India, it is advisable to gather information like
currency used in the state, voltage and electric current, etc. As far as
the latter is concerned, we can tell you that the voltage output in the
state is around 220-240 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second.
In case you are planning to bring electrical appliances, like hair
dryer, electric shaver and iron, along with you, it is necessary to
ensure that they are compatible with the voltage in Himachal Pradesh. In
case they are not, it is advisable for you to get voltage converters.
They adjust the existing electric current in such a way that it becomes
compatible with the electrical appliances. There are basically three
types of voltage converters available in the market - resistor-network
converters, transformers and combination converters.
Amongst these three, the first one is mainly used in case of high
voltage appliances, as it works on 50-1600 watts. The second one i.e. a
transformer should be used for low voltage appliances that can easily
work in the range of 50-100 watts. Finally, we come to the combination
converters, which support high as well as low voltage appliances. As for
the plugs, the sockets in Himachal Pradesh accept plugs with either two
or three (arranged in a triangle) round pins. In case of any variation,
use of plug adapters is advised.
