Electricity in Brazil - voltage and frequency

All power sockets in Brazil provide a standard voltage of 220V with a standard frequency of 60Hz.

You can use all your equipment in Brazil if the outlet voltage in your own country is between 100V-240V. This is mostly the case in Europe, Australia, United Kingdom and most countries in Africa and Asia.

The standard frequency in Brazil 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.

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.
