Electricity in Libya - voltage and frequency

All power sockets in Libya provide a standard voltage of 230V with a standard frequency of 50Hz.

You can use all your equipment in Libya 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 Libya is 50Hz. 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.
