Question:

using my electrical appliances in Cuba?

i'm from the UK and i want to take my GHDs, camera and phone charger, what kind of plug do i need and where can i get one, im going sunday

Answer:

Cuba’s electricity is 110 volts, 60Hz, but most hotels and resorts have 220 volts. Electrical outlets take flat plug prongs. If you’re bringing an electrical appliance, you should check the resort specs before you leave to see if you need an adaptor or converter. You will need an adapter/converter specifically for digital equipment. They're slightly different than the regular adapters for hair dryers, shavers. It's not true that you can take those with you and use them. People from everywhere travel to Cuba and use their cameras, recorders, phones, etc. Most travel, hardware, and department stores will carry these.and electronic stores for sure. See the links below for descriptions of which plugs are for which appliance.

Have an amazing time in Cuba.

You can't use them. Plugs in Cuba use 220 volt and the plugs aren't the same as ours, and even more different from those in Europe. You can get an adapter that will make it fit, but it won't change the voltage/amperage/resistance. As soon as you plug anything in, it will start smoking or instantly catch on fire, even if you are using an adapter. Bring extra sets of batteries and leave the phone at home.
