Travel Adapters

A travel adapter has become an essential for using electronic devices when you travel. If the voltage or plug type differs from those within your country then you will need an adapter. Power outlets have different shapes in different parts of the world, so you will need an adapter to convert the shape of your home plug types to the shape of the outlets in the region of the world you're travelling to.

There are many types of plugs used across the world. For example a European plug will typically be a Type C, whereas a US plug type will be a Type A. However in Asia you can find that there is a mix of plug types being used.



North America

The voltage of North America is 120 volts, with most electrical goods operating at around 110 volts. The plug type is two prongs with a third optional round pin.

Brazil, Mexico, Japan, some part of Egypt, Thailand and Peru also use this type of power adapters

UK and Ireland

The voltage for UK and Ireland is 230 volts with most electrical goods operating at between 220 - 240 volts. The United Kingdom and Ireland outlets require a unique 3 flat rectangular pronged plug type.

Europe

Using the same voltage as the UK and Ireland of 230 volts with most electrical goods operating at between 220 - 240 volts. The difference though is Europe operates on a 2 round prong outlet.

These adapters offer a single adaptation from your electronic device, to you destinations electric output. So for example this could be a UK three prong plug to a European 2 Pin plug.

Multi Regional Adapters

These adapters offer multiple plug type options with multiple output options for travelling to different regions. So for example an adapter could have up too three types of plugs as the source and then have up to three types of plugs for the outlet.
