Nowadays, people can’t imagine their lives and travelling without electronic devices. When travelling abroad, you may face up with a problem of charging your gadgets. So it will be useful to have some knowledge about electrical mains and electrical standards.
There are two main types of electrical voltage and frequency in the world. The first one is an American standard of 100-127 V/60 Hz with A and B plugs. The other one is a European standard of 220-240 Volt/50 Hz with C - M plugs.
In Kazakhstan we use sockets of European standard (C, E, F types) with 220 Volt/50 Hz. That means, most tourists from Europe (e.g. exception is the UK, where different plug is used), as well as from India, Turkey, Tunis, which also use European electrical standards, will not have issues with plugging in. As for travelers from the USA, Japan and other countries with different standards, they should stock up some adapters prior to arrival in Kazakhstan. However, if you forgot to bring along adapters in a fuss of trip preparations, do not worry. You can find special points of charging for electronic devices with various plugs at the airports of major cities. Later, you can buy appropriate adapter for personal usage in your destination, just pop into a shop that sells consumer electronics in major cities.
