Electricity:

  • Voltage: 230 V
  • Frequency: 50 Hz
  • Power sockets: type C / F
  • If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V - 127V (as in the US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a plug adapter and power (voltage) converter. To be sure, check the label on the appliance. If it states 'INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz', it can be used in all countries of the world (like chargers for tablets/laptops, photo cameras, cell phones, toothbrushes). If the frequency in the Netherlands (Holland) (50 Hz) differs from the one in your country, it is not advised to use your appliances, but you can try at your own risk.
