Nigeriens use six different types of power outlets (D, A, B, C, E and F) and using a power charger like this will ensure that you are covered for both types A and C. Because these types of chargers are supplied with interchangeable pins and can handle 100 to 240 volts it makes them ideal for over 100 countries around the world just by switching the heads.
