AC Plugs and International Electrical Power Plugs to be used in different countries

Before traveling internationally, it is important to determine the electrical plug and socket types used in the destination(s) that you are going to visit. First-time travelers to foreign countries may only find out when confronted with the problem of trying to plug their electrical device into a socket with an unsuitable configuration. So it is necessary to do your research.

Generally, AC power plugs are the connectors attached to an electrical device's mains cable, and the socket is fixed on equipment or a building structure and connected to an energized electrical circuit. The plug has protruding prongs, blades, or pins (referred to as male) that fit into matching slots or holes (called female) in the sockets.

Electrical plugs and sockets differ in voltage and current rating, shape, size and type of connectors. Not all areas of a country may use all types of plugs listed for that country, since there may be regional differences based on the power system in a certain area. While many modern buildings and hotels in China for example, feature a single plug that can accommodate a wide variety of different plugs, in most of the other countries local sockets will only accommodate one kind of plug. Check in our FAQ chart for listings.

You may be able to pick up the plugs and adapters you need at an electronics store when you arrive at your foreign destination, but don’t count on it because they can be hard to find. You should make your purchases ahead of time so you’re prepared.
