Foreign Power and Electricity Converters in India
The electricity in India is 240 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second.
Note, some of the 5 star hotels in India may provide both foreign electricity adapters and step-down power transformers that will support American appliances. However, it is not common, and that will typically only be provided in the top of the line hotels.
Also, the outlets in India typically accept the following types of plug:
- Two round pins
- Three round pins arranged in a triangle formation
So, if your appliance’s plug or the foreign power converter you have has any other shape, you will need a plug adapter as well, or you will need to acquire another unit that will support those plugs.
