Electricity in American Samoa - voltage and frequency

All power sockets in American Samoa provide a standard voltage of 120V with a standard frequency of 60Hz.

You can use all your equipment in American Samoa if the outlet voltage in your own country is between 100V-127V. This is mostly the case in the US, Canada and countries in South America.

The standard frequency in American Samoa is 60Hz. If this frequency differs from the frequency used in your home country, please use caution when plugging in your devices. Check the small print on the device to see if the device can handle the frequency. Please note we regularly check our electricity information with the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC)

Small print on the device or power adapter indicates what voltages the device can work with. If you see 100-240V 50/60Hz printed, the adapter is rated to work on all voltages used worldwide. Please note that power plug adapters only convert plug types and do not convert voltages.
