AC Plug Adapters for South Africa
Example Plug Grounded Universal Receptacle to Old British 16A (BS546) Plug
Grounded Universal Receptacle to Old British 5A (BS546) Plug
The universal receptacle on these adapters will accept most worldwide plugs except the 16 amp "large" British BS 546 (Indian/South African) plug.  In many countries less-commonly-used outlets may be found.  Therefore, we do not guarantee the accuracy of this information. Use this adapter if your appliance supports 110~120 AND 220~240 volt electricity (consult your appliance's label or manual).
AC Voltage Conversion for South Africa
Example Transformer Two-Way Transformers
For use with electronic devices. A step-down transformer will convert the 220~240 volt electricity in South Africa to the 110~120 volt electricity required by your device.  Select a transformer that supports at least as many watts as is required by your appliance. Use a step-down transformer and the adapter above if your appliance supports ONLY 110~120 volt electricity (consult your appliance's label).
Electrical Specifications in South Africa
Voltage: 230 Volts Grounded AC Plug Adapters do not convert voltage.  If your appliance does NOT accept 220-240 voltage, serious damage can result if you do not also use a Two-Way Transformer to convert the supplied voltage to 110-120 volts.  
Frequency: 50Hz North American 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60 Hz (cycles). Most international 220-240 volt electricity is generated at 50 Hz (cycles). This difference in cycles may cause the motor in your 60 Hz North American appliance to operate slightly slower when used on 50 Hz.  Devices such as clocks may not function normally at 50Hz.
