What voltage and frequency in Madagascar?

In Madagascar the standard voltage is 127 / 220 V and the frequency is 50 Hz.

  • Watch out! In Madagascar more than one voltage is being used (127 / 220 V).

It can depend on the region, the city or even the hotel which voltage you will come across. Your appliances work on 230 V. So please check locally if you can use your appliances!

If the local voltage is 127 V, you need a voltage converter. Some say you can carefully try to use your appliances in Madagascar without a converter. Most likely they won't be damaged, but may not function optimally. If you don't want to take any chances, use a converter. You can find voltage converters at Amazon. Because you also need a power plug adapter, you should consider a combined plug adapter/voltage converter.

To be sure, check the label on the appliance. Some appliances never need a converter. If the label states 'INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz' the appliance can be used in all countries in the world. This is common for chargers of tablets/laptops, photo cameras, cell phones, toothbrushes, etc.
