Plug Types by Country / Electrical Plug Types by Country 2023

What Countries Use the Type A or Type B Plug?

If you are from the United States, this is a plug that will immediately look familiar to you. It has two flat prongs, and frequently a third prong that is meant to be used as the “ground.” If the cord does not have a ground plug, the wire should still work; however, not every Type A power outlet has a prong for the ground (if it has a ground, it is a Type B plug), so you need to keep this in mind. In addition to the United States, this type of power outlet is found throughout all of North and Central America. It is typically used in Japan as well; however, the Japanese prongs might be a bit smaller. This means that Japanese devices should work fine in plugs in the United States, but the reverse is not always true.

What Countries Use the Type C Plug?

The type-c plug is used in all countries in Europe except for the United Kingdom and Ireland. This means that you will find this plug in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and every other country throughout Europe. It is probably the most widely used international plug, and it is also called the Europlug. It has two round prongs and it is not always grounded. Even though the socket is changing slightly, cords that fit in Type C plugs will also fit into a wide variety of other plugs, including Type E.

What Countries Use the Type D Plug?

The Type D plug is used mainly in Namibia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and India. It is not nearly as common as many of the other plugs on this list, but there are a lot of people who use it. There are three large, round pins that are in the shape of a triangle. Devices that work with Type D plugs typically do not work with any other type of plug.

What Countries Use the Type E Plug?

The Type E plug is frequently found throughout Eastern Europe and some parts of Africa. Some of the most common countries where you will see this plug include Tunisia, Morocco, Slovakia, and Poland. If you are in older buildings in France or Belgium, you may see this type of plug as well. There are two large, round prongs along with an “Earth” pin that fits in between the two larger prongs. Devices that fit with the Type C plug should work fine with this plug as well.

What Countries Use the Type F Plug?

Devices that work with the Type C plug will also work well with the Type F plug. This is an older plug that was designed in Germany just after the end of the First World War. Therefore, you will see this plug in older buildings in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands. You may also see this plug in older buildings and Scandinavian countries, such as Finland, Norway, and Sweden, as well.

- Most sockets in Somalia and Somaliland are universal sockets which accept types A, B, C, D, E, F, G, I, O, and sometimes also types J, K and L.
- Most sockets in Mongolia are universal sockets which accept either types A & C or types A, B, C, D, E, F, G, I, & O.
