Electric currant in the Philippines…

Hi to all of you…

I’m planning to move from Vietnam to the Philippines in a few months.

I did some researches, but I am far from being an expert. I would welcome the advice of an expert electrician.

On a website I read: In the Philippines the standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 60 Hz. (I really thought it was 110)

On the same website I read: In Vietnam the standard voltage is 110 / 220 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. (A note says: Vietnam is moving toward standardizing on 220V, but 127V outlets might still be found… which is not my case) For example, both my refrigerator and freezer, and small appliances, are 220-50 (but one is 220-240 and 50-60).

Just recently I was in the Philippines, and I found out that most hardware stores have convertors from 220 to 110… but do I need one to convert from 50 to 60?

Any good advice will be welcome.
Thanks.
Jaypee
