Travel Adaptor for Tahiti

The electrical sockets used in Tahiti are type C and type E. These are 2 variants of the same socket - one grounded (with an earth pin) and the other ungrounded. You will therefore need a UK 3 pin to type C/E adaptor in order to plug in your appliances.

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 Tahiti is 220 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

Frequency - Both 50Hz and 60 Hz are in use in Tahiti . The UK operates at 50 Hz so if the area that you are travelling to runs at this frequency it will not cause any issues. If the area that you are going to operates at 60 Hz it makes little practical 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.
