Adapter plug adapter france spain
In the world there are at least 14 different types of plugs, something that forces tourists to travel equipped with adapters, and online shoppers to check the compatibility of appliances before purchasing them in other markets. If you are in France or have recently traveled there, you may have noticed that hotels or residential areas have the so-called French plug. For this reason, Simon has created an exhaustive selection of French plugs.
At Simon you can find high quality French plug sockets. These bases are manufactured with metal components that carry halogen-free thermoplastic insulation and are compatible with the different mechanisms offered by Simon in its corresponding ranges.
On the other hand, if you are looking for covers for these French sockets, we also have these products. Of them we emphasize those that incorporate some safety devices that carry French side grounding.
Voltage in France
In France , plugs and sockets are of type C or E. Type C has two round pins and type E has two round pins and a hole for the grounding pin of the plug.
If the voltage in your country is between 220V – 250V (as in Europe, Australia and most of Asia) you can use your equipment. If your appliances are only made for 100V – 127V (as in the USA, Canada and most South American countries) you cannot use them and will need a voltage converter or a voltage converter with a type C or E adapter. If the voltage frequency in your country is different from that in France (230 V), some devices may not work properly.
Check the device markings before traveling. Each electrical device has a label (often on the charger) indicating in which volt and frequency range it operates, for example “INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz”. If this range is also found in the destination country, you do not need a voltage converter, just check the type of plug / socket. More information about the voltage converter can be found here.

The main reason why not all countries use the same type of plugs is due to a non-globalized technological development and to the fact that it has not been possible to reach a consensus to homogenize them among manufacturers and countries.
Looking back, the race to popularize the use of electricity began at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. However, at that time it was impossible to predict that the world would change so much and that we would travel around the world loaded with electrical appliances.
The result is that today there are 16 different types of plugs in the world. Each of them is given a letter to name it. We can find from the type A plug to the type N plug. We are going to repair all the plug models in the world.
The type C is composed of two round and parallel pins while in the wall socket we find the two holes where it is connected. What we colloquially know as the male and the female, expression that we use for most of the cable connections.

I did not expect how good this entry would be and the truth is that it is super effective.if you have a device from usa and you want it in Europe this is a good solution (as long as the amperage is correct).
I used it to be able to work with my laptop (American charger), but sometimes when I plugged it in, the current block of the charger emitted an electrical noise. Fortunately there were no problems. Additionally, I tried to use it to connect a Nintendo Switch to a TV but I could not do it, I could only charge the console.
Adaptateur prise 220v Japon vers prise 220v EUpour utiliser en France ( et partout en Europe sauf GB) un chargeur de batteries d’appareil photo d’batteries acheté au JaponDe construction sérieuse, les contacteurs japonais du chargeur sont bien enclenchés et fixés dans cet adaptateur sans crainte de les voir remuer et créer des faux contacts. Beaucoup moins encombrant et plus fiable que mon adaptateur universel .
How to you sell an item intended to convert power that says on the front PRETTY MUCH IMPOSSIBLE TO READ BY THE WAY…!!!! … THAT IT DOESNT EVEN CONVERT THE VOLTAGE. Help me to understand if you would like?.
