What is the Electricity Voltage in American Samoa?
The voltage in American Samoa is 120 volts.
The voltage, therefore, is lower than the 230 volts in the United Kingdom. This difference means that you have to be cautious when using electrical devices purchased in the United Kingdom:
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 American Samoa, you should either not use your device there, or buy a voltage converter before departing.
What is the utility frequency in American Samoa?
The utility frequency in American Samoa is 60 Hertz.
The frequency, therefore, is higher than the 50 Hertz in use in the United Kingdom. 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 American Samoa, 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 American Samoa, you should not use the device!
