Travel Adaptor for Peru

There are multiple socket types used in Peru (A / B / C). Type A/B is the most commonly found so a UK 3 pin to type A/B 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 - The mains voltage in Peru is 220 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

Warning triangle Frequency - The frequency in Peru is 60 Hz which is slightly higher than in the UK (which operates at 50 Hz). In practical terms this makes little difference as most travel appliances will run at either frequency. Some items with motors, such as hairdryers and some clocks will run a little faster than intended but it is not likely to be problematic. Check your device - it may say 50/60 Hz which indicates that it is compatible with either frequency. If you are in doubt or have expensive equipment check with the manufacturer first as some equipment may be damaged by running on an incorrect frequency.

Special considerations - Talara 110/220 V; Arequipa 50 Hz
