In Tanzania, the local current is 220–240V 50Hz. The sockets accept type D plugs — the three-pronged plugs with round pins common in Britain until 1940s. Power cuts and surges are becoming less common, but may still happen. It is best practice to unplug your devices when you are not using them. Also consider using a power adapter with a breaker for your more delicate electronics.
