Shop for 220v to 110v Adapter at Reasonable Price

Jun 8th 2015 at 12:37 AM

Did you know that there are 15 different types of electrical outlet plugs currently used around the world? Each of these types has been assigned an identifying letter by the United States Department of Commerce International Trade Administration (ITA). It should be noted, however, that these identifications are completely arbitrary and don't necessarily mandate anything. For informational purposes, the following are some general things you should remember when shopping for adapters to fit foreign sockets:

• Type A – Type A plugs are mainly used in the US, Mexico, Canada, and Japan. They consist of 2 pins, are not grounded, and are almost always 100 to 127 volts.

• Type B – These plugs are widely used in the same places as Type A plugs, as they are socket compatible with plug type A. They consist of 3 pins, are grounded, and support 100 to 127 V, consistently.

• Type C – Type C plugs are more widely used in Europe, Asia, and South America. They consist of two round pins and support 220 to 240 volts.

• Type D – These are 3-pronged plugs that are mostly used in India. They are grounded and can support up to 220 to 240 volts.

• Type E – Type E plugs feature 2 round pins and are socket compatible with plug types C, E, and F. they are primarily used in Belgium, France, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.

• Type F – These plugs are widely used in Europe and Russia, except for Ireland and the UK. They feature 2 pins and support voltage ratings between 220 and 240.

• Type H – Type H is exclusively used in Israel, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. These plugs have 3 round pins and can be used with socket types C and H.

• Type I – Type I pins feature 2 or 3 pins, (1 vertical, 2 angled). They are mainly used in New Zealand, Australia, China, and Argentina.
