Voltage and power plugs in Belgium



Everywhere in Belgium the standard voltage is 220V.  If you're bringing equipment with you that uses only
100V (North America, Japan, Korea) you should not connect it to the Belgian power net.
However, light fixtures are OK provided that you replace the light bulbs with 220V bulbs purchased in Europe.


Power plugs:

The Belgian power plug is the western European type, with two round pin-holes.  Plugs from the UK, North and
South America, and Asia will prove useless in Belgium.  Plug adaptors are not easy to find in Belgium or
elsewhere in Europe, so you might want to purchase them before coming to Belgium.
We keep some in stock for our tenants but please don't count on us having enough for everybody.
