Voltage

Similar voltage

The voltage is not exact, but the difference is usually tolerable by electrical devices. Its mostly safe to plug your electrical apparatus from Afghanistan in Pakistan without a voltage adapter. If you have any concerns with a special device i.e. a medical device, you probably want to seek further professional help.

Plugs Type

Some connectors are used in both countries

You will be able to plug the devices directly in Pakistan (please read other sections of this reports in regards to voltage, etc.). Perhaps you will need adapters for some sockets, but it is usually easier to find adapters at destination if your plug is already being used in the country. Sometimes different cities uses different systems, you might need to do a bit more of research. If you find more information please let us know.

Front Back

This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, D, G, I, M into outlets type: C, E, F, L.

This adapter has a safety protection so you don't plug only one terminal into the adapter while touching the other with your finger, because it is generic, when you buy it pay attention to this safety mechanism. Overall a good adapter that has the earth connection pass-though (notice the the metallic connector on the side.)

Hertz

No equal Hertz

This is not a big issue. Unless you are using an electric alarm clock or some motors when speed is an issue. Explanation: Some alarm clocks uses the frequency of electricity network to measure time. So, time shifts could be experimented. Almost every home electronic device works perfectly with different Hertz.
