Travel Adaptor for Madagascar

There are multiple socket types used in Madagascar (C / D / E / J / K). Type C/E is the most commonly found so a UK 3 pin to type C/E adaptor should allow you to connect your appliances in many cases. If you want to be sure though a better option may be to invest in a worldwide adaptor that is a single unit capable of connecting to multiple socket types.

Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK 3 pin plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply.

Voltage - Multiple voltages are in use in Madagascar . It is essential therefore that you check what the voltage is locally before you plug in an appliance. In some countries different sockets are used for the different voltages but this is not necessarily the case so always check first. UK appliances will generally operate satisfactorily with a voltage anywhere in the range 220V - 250V. If the local voltage is in the range 100V - 127V you will need to check your appliance for compatibility. Some appliances are marked 100 - 240V either on the equipment itself or the power supply (if it has one). If it is not marked as able to accept the local voltage do not plug it in! In order to operate incompatible appliances you will need a transformer.

Frequency - The frequency in Madagascar is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.
