Power Adapters for Samoa
Samoa’s power outlets are Type 1, which is good news for people travelling from New Zealand, Australia and China who all have the same type of power outlet. The electrical current in Samoa is 230v AC 50Hz, so if you are coming from a country such as the Americas, your electrical devices will either have a 110v/240v switch on the item or you will need to make sure your travel adapter also converts voltage. We make sure to highlight the travel adapters that do and don’t in this list of the best travel adapters for Samoa.
For a more in-depth look at electricity in Samoa, see our guide, Samoa Electrical Outlets & Power Plugs.
1. A Cheap and Easy Travel Adapter with Surge Protection
If you don’t want to be fussed with over-the-top travel adapters, then this Samoa travel adapter is a cheap yet reliable option. The dual ports on the adapter allow for the US and European connectors, as well as a few other countries, so check the link to see if your home country is included. We like that the adaptor protects your devices should there be an electrical surge. Plus, it’s bright purple so it’s unlikely that you’ll leave it behind! Note that this adaptor is not a voltage converter.

2. BESTEK Adapter + Converter Multi-Plug
Speaking of voltage converters, if you’re coming from the Americas then this universal multi-plug adapter and converter will be a trusty travel companion for many trips to come. Use this multi-plug to convert electrical devices that usually use 110v 60Hz to Samoa’s 230v 50Hz, which protects your devices from burning out and causing electrical fires. The multi-plug has four different output sockets so you can use it all around the world.

3. OREI USB-to-Samoa Adapter
Not only does this cheerfully colourful travel adaptor for Samoa have a US input for our American friends, but it has two USB inputs! These compact travel adapters with three inputs mean that you can make the most of the usually limited power outlets available in some fales in Samoa. We also like that they have a grounded connection and surge protection. Note that this one also doesn’t convert voltage.
