Portugal uses power outlets and plugs of types C & F. Click here to see how they look like.
Type C – The standard European plug. Commonly used in Europe, South-America and Asia, but also in quite a few other countries. Plugs of type E and F will also fit in a type C outlet.
Type F – Used in almost all European countries and Russia. Also known as the Schuko plug. Plugs of type C and E will also fit in a type F socket.
For Portugal, you will need a standard European, 2-pin adaptor.
All power sockets in Portugal provide a standard voltage of 230V with a standard frequency of 50Hz.
You can use all your equipment in Portugal if the outlet voltage in your own country is between 220V-240V. This is the case in most of Europe, Australia, the United Kingdom and most countries in Africa and Asia.
If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V-127V (which is most common in the US, Canada and countries in South America) you might need a voltage converter in Portugal.
The standard frequency in Portugal is 50Hz. If this frequency differs from the frequency used in your home country, please use caution when plugging in your devices.
