Voltage

Exact voltage

Perfect! This is very good! You will not need any sort of voltage adapter (they are always big, heavy and they can't handle too much energy. i.e. might have problems with hairdryers). You can plug your devices to the electric network grid in Namibia without requiring a voltage adapter.

Plugs Type

Some connectors are used in both countries

You will be able to plug the devices directly in Namibia (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.

Adapters

Lists of adapters you can use in your travel:

Adapter: generic

Front Back

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

This adapter is extremely generic without loose terminal and finger protection, it does have earth pass-though which is a good thing; but it will not have a good grip because it support so many different plug types in only three generic slots; we don't recommend this adapter unless no better alternative can be found. i.e. a more expensive one.

Hertz

Equal Hertz

This is the perfect situation. You will not have any clock shift issue with the same Hertz.
