Power sockets

Which types of power outlets are used in Fiji?

Fiji uses power outlets of type I. Electrical outlets of type A and B, which are common in Canada, are not in use in Fiji.

Mains voltage

What is the Electricity Voltage in Fiji?

The voltage in Fiji is 240 volts.

The voltage, therefore, is higher than the 120 volts in Canada. This difference means that you have to be cautious when using electrical devices purchased in Canada:

You should read the instruction manual of your device and check at which voltage it is safe to use.

If the voltage stated in the user's manual or on the device's power supply differs from the mains voltage in Fiji, you should either not use your device there, or buy a voltage converter before departing.

Utility frequency

What is the utility frequency in Fiji?

The utility frequency in Fiji is 50 Hertz.

The frequency, therefore, is lower than the 60 Hertz in use in Canada. This difference may not be a problem for most of your devices, but you still have to be cautious:

Devices that either measure time, or are equipped with moving and rotating parts, are particularly dangerous! So, if you plan to use shavers, heaters, kitchen appliances or alarm clocks in Fiji, read the instruction manuals to see if these devices are safe to use on the local utility frequency.

If the mains frequency specified in the manual or on the power supply is different from the rate used in Fiji, you should not use the device!
