Is Hong Kong 110 or 220?
Electricity in Hong Kong is supplied at between 220 and 240 volts. This is twice the standard voltage than in North America and some Latin American countries which run on 110 volts.
China uses generally 220V, 50HZ, AC (Hong Kong is 200V; Taiwan is 110V). If you are from the countries where the standard of 110-120 volts at a frequency of 60 Hz is available, you need to have converters for your domestic electric devices to be used on your trip to China.
- In China the standard voltage is 220 V and the frequency is 50 Hz. You can use your electric appliances in China, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220 - 240 V (as is in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa). You can also consider a combined power plug adapter/voltage converter.
- Electricity. There are three types of plugs used in China – three-pronged angled pins, two flat pins (the most common) or two narrow round pins. Electricity is 220 volts, 50 cycles AC.
- Electricity and Voltage. The standard electrical voltage in Hong Kong is 220 volts AC, 50Hz. Most hotel bathrooms also have outlets for 100 volts, but if not, you will need a transformer for any appliance or electrical equipment. The majority of electrical outlets in Hong Kong take a three-pronged UK-style plug.
