Travel plug guidebook

When traveling abroad it can happen that the plug of the power supply for the shaver, the hairdryer, the laptopor the charging cable of the mobile phone is not compatible with the socket in the hotel room. This is not only a problem with long-distance travel, but also in England the Euro plug type C, which is common in Germany and other European countries, is not supported. In these cases is a travel adapter, also Travel Plug called, mandatory for power supply of the entrained devices required. But not only the socketsbut also the frequency, the voltage and the current vary in different countries.

Criteria to consider when choosing one Travel Plug must be taken into account

Those who want to make sure that their valuable devices can also be used during a trip abroad, should already be informed during planning about which mains voltage and which sockets are common in the destination country. If you are traveling to a country that does not come with the usual 230 Volt voltage from the socket, you must bring along a suitable travel adapter. So that the voltage can be converted, a transformer must be in the Travel Plug be integrated. If, however, the devices that are taken on the trip, also support the unusual voltage, a travel adapter without integrated transformer is sufficient.

Furthermore, when choosing a travel plug, it should be ensured that it is equipped with a metal arrester for Schuko sockets. Otherwise, unfortunately, as with some models, no grounding available. Of course, still only one device should be selected, which has been tested by the TÜV.

Which one Travel Plug is suitable for the destination?

Depending on the travel destination, the correct travel adapter type must be selected so that the power supply of the devices carried along is ensured. For example, those in Asian countries, the CIS, Japan, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Cuba, Canada, and the United States, for example, must have at least one travel plug type B, such as the Type B Hama model Travel Plug be packed.

If you are traveling to China, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, the Fiji Islands and some other countries, you need to bring a type I plug, such as the type I adaptoo travel plug.

On the other hand, if you travel to the UK, the Middle East, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Cyprus, Mauritius, the Seychelles, Malta, Dubai, Kenya or one of the many Commonwealth countries around the world, you need a travel plug type G, for example the practical 2-seater Set travel plug type G by Brennenstuhl.

In some countries, such as Uruguay, Chile, Tunisia, Spain, Greece, Italy and the Maldives, a type L travel adapter such as the Adaptare Travel Adapter is required.

A travel plug type J, for example the set of four Brennenstein may not be missing in your luggage, for example, when traveling to Switzerland, Liechtenstein and some other countries.

Of course, if only one country is visited, not all types listed must be taken, but only the one suitable for the destination country.

Frequent travelers do not have to buy all types of travel plugs individually and have them on round trips in their luggage. Space-saving alternatives to various individual adapters are the product Skross World Travel Adapter Pro + USB and the Universal World Adapter by MAXAH.

Buy electronics abroad

Anyone who buys electronic or electrical equipment in a country where a travel plug for the use of devices purchased in Germany should buy, should remember that in this case, a travel adapter is required in reverse. When purchasing, it is therefore important to obtain information on whether the products offer support for 220, 230 or 240V. In order for a new 110V device bought in the US not to be damaged by a mains voltage of 220 to 240V, a transformer such as the Bronson VT 200 is needed, which transforms the voltage down to the required 110V and thereby ensures proper operation.
