3 most frequently used electric plugs

Cathy 2016-10-28 18:32:52

"Have you exported the flat irons to Thailand before? Here we used different plugs from you. "

There are altogether 14 types of plugs according to the IEC, plug type A to N.


Here I listed three of the mostly used plug types for flat irons, curling irons and other home appliances.


Plug Type A

Used in: North and Central America(US, Mexico), Asia countries Japan, China, Thailand and so on

The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size.


Plug Type B

Used in: North and Central America(Canada, US, Mexico),  and Japan, Thailand, Taiwah

The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly.
Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.


Plug Type C

Used in: Europe, except for the UK, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta

The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres.
Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
