Since the voltage standards and power cord plug standards are different in various countries in the world, the power cord plugs used at home and abroad are all different in length, so what are the differences?
Generally speaking, there are roughly two types of voltages used for indoor electricity use in various countries in the world: 100V～130V, and 220～240V.
The voltage types used in common countries are as follows:
100V: Japan, South Korea;
110～130V: China Taiwan, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, Cuba, Lebanon;
220～230V: China, Hong Kong (200V), Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, India, Singapore, Thailand, Netherlands, Spain, Greece, Austria, Philippines, Norway, etc.
1. Let me talk about my great motherland-China. Most of the 3C national standard plugs are used in China. The national standard plug blade is flat, and the Argentina and Australian regulations are similar to ours.
2. American plugs are used in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Colombia, the Philippines, Thailand and other countries and Taiwan, and are characterized by one round and two flat.
3. British standard plugs are used in Hong Kong, Britain, India, Pakistan, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Maldives, Qatar and other countries and regions, and are characterized by three square heads. In addition, the UK also has a 2-pin socket, which is generally used for electric shavers. The voltage is relatively small and not suitable for the voltage of Chinese electrical appliances.
4. European standard (German standard) plugs are used in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Spain, Sweden and other EU countries as well as South Korea, Russia and other countries. The feature is two round heads. .
