What type of plugs and sockets are used in the Comoros Islands?
When you are going on a trip to the Comoros Islands, be sure to pack the appropriate travel plug adapter that fits the local sockets. But what do those electrical outlets look like? In the Comoros archipelago, types C and E are the official standards. Since type F plugs are identical to type E plugs, they can also be used with type E sockets. The Union of the Comoros has standardized on the same plugs and receptacles as France, just like almost all other former French colonies.
- commonly used in Europe, South America & Asia
- 2 pins
- not grounded
- 2.5 A, 10 A & 16 A
- almost always 220 – 240 V
- socket compatible with plug type C
What is the mains voltage in the Comoros Islands?
Just like in many former French colonies, the voltage in the Comoros is 220 volts and the frequency is 50 Hz.
