What Voltage of Electricity Is Used in Australia?

Answer

There is no standard frequency and mains voltage throughout the world, therefore the number of times the current changes direction per second, is not the same. Plug holes, plug sizes, plug shapes and sockets are also different in many countries. Outlets in Australia generally accept 1 type of plug and the electricity is 240 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second.

The electricity voltage in Australia is 230 V, which is the same in all of Europe and most of South America, Africa, Asia and New Zealand. This also means that standard 230V equipment can be used in most parts of the world, with only a minor change in the equipment's electrical plug for a specific country.
Electricity voltage in Australia is 240V AC, 50Hz, alternating at 50 cycles per second. The standard 3-pin earthed power outlets are all rated at 10Amps. The Australian mains plug configuration was formalised as Standard C112 in 1938.
