I would recommend you either buy a travel adapter that has a multitude of plugs and in particular, a 2-pin plug most airports have.

I've arrived in Morocco also and bought one at the airport or if you want to save some money, buy one from the local electrical shop in the town you will be staying in or from the bigger supermarkets.

If you are staying at a hotel, most of the hotels usually provide one or will rent one to you for a daily fee.

Voltage Converters and Transformers Explained

Converters vs Transformers

Worldwide, the voltage of electricity can range from 100V to 240V. It can be very risky to use an appliance with the wrong rating. If you use an appliance in Morocco for more than one or two hours at a time, you might need a transformer or a voltage converter. Make sure your appliance doesn't surpass either of the maximum power ratings for it.


Dual vs Single Voltage Appliances

With just a plug adapter, dual-voltage appliances with ratings between 110V and 240V can be used in Morocco. To work with Morocco's 220V supply, single-voltage 220V appliances will require a converter or transformer. To find out if a voltage is dual or single, check the rating plate.


Travel Adapter Precautions

Certain travel adapters must only be used with double-insulated equipment that is marked with the appropriate symbol; they cannot be used with appliances that need an earth connection. Furthermore, appliance operation might be impacted if the frequency is different from what it is in your home country (e.g. a 50Hz clock running faster on 60Hz). Although plug adapters are typically included with converters/transformers, separate travel adapters might still be required.
