New Zealand’s electricity network works at 230 volt AC (50 hertz). Most of NZ hotels & motels also have 110 volt AC sockets to charge electric shavers. An adaptor will however be required to be able to use any of the electrical equipment that tourists may bring into the country. These adaptors can be purchased at any electrical goods suppliers or local hardware stores.
Electricity supply is usually good and reliable; most of New Zealand’s Electric Power is produced by Hydro electric power stations located in the South Island.
