Electricity in Iceland
Iceland uses Northern European electrical standards (50 Hz/220 volts) so converters may be required for small electrical appliances brought from home. Some appliances such as chargers for laptops, digital cameras or mobile phones, may already be compatible with multiple voltages and may just need a travel adapter. Iceland uses the standard Europlug socket with two round prongs. Sample adapters – Joomfeen Universal Travel Adapter | European USB Wall Plug
