Voltage in India

Voltage in IndiaThe voltage & current supply in India is different than the rest of the world. Electricity in India is 240 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. In case the devices you are carrying do not accept 240 volts at 50 hertz, you will be required to carry a voltage converter. You can either buy one from here or get one from your home. There are basically three types of voltage converters that are available and adaptable to the Indian voltage. They are given below.
  • Resistor-network converters: 50-1600 Watts
    Can be used for appliances like hair dryers and irons.
  • Transformers: 50-100 Watts
    Can be used continuously for items like battery chargers, radios, laptop computers, cameras, MP3 players and camcorders.
  • Combination converters: Has a combination voltage of resistor network and transformers. One can switch from one mode to another by a switch provided for this purpose.
India uses different types of plugs unlike the ones used in western countries. The plugs are usually the round pin type instead of the flat pin plug that most countries in the West use. It advisable that you carry a combination plug adapter that is available very easily in most electrical shops.
