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 Zimbabwe in Guyana 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 Guyana (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.

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

This is a very cheap adapter without loose terminal and finger protection; it does have earth pass-though (good); but no good grip because of so many different supported plugs. We recommend to use a more expensive option if available.

This adapter is probably illegal in some countries, we put it here for educational purposes; it does not have earth connection but it allows earthed plugs to be connected to it. It has no finger-terminal protection. Try to go for a more expensive and safer alternative.

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.
