Take extreme care: the electric network is not homogeneous
Different voltages are used within the countries. So perhaps different voltages are used in different regions or cities. You will have to exercise extreme caution about this. Before pluging any electric device, you should check your device voltage and you must ask a local for the voltage used in the electric network. If you move to different city or region, you should ask again. Using electric devices in different voltage network could incurr in a broken device and even fire. Please read further the page for more information.
On the positive side, nowadays many devices will switch automatically to the network voltage and they will work just fine, i.e. mobile phone chargers are typically multi-voltage (but please, do actually check your own).
High-power devices don't usually handle different voltages due to the high-currents involved i.e. anything that its main purpose involves generating heat (or cold) like hair driers, baby bottle warmers, kettles, etc. On the contrary, modern low-power devices are likely to auto-detect and auto-adapt to different voltages i.e. usb chargers, laptop chargers, etc.
You might either need a step up voltage converter, a step down voltage converter, or maybe, nothing at all. When a country electronic grid is not homogenous, there is not much we can help but ask you to exercise caution.
Some connectors are used in both countries
You will be able to plug the devices directly in Cameroon (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.
Lists of adapters you can use in your travel:
This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, D, G, I, M into outlets type: C, E, F, L.
This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B into outlets type: C, E, F, L.
Adapters you can buy
This is the perfect situation. You will not have any clock shift issue with the same Hertz.
Finally, by the way ...
