Technical specification
  • The Type D Adapter has 3 round pins arranged in a triangula pattern with the uppermost pin larger in diameter and length than the other two equally sized pins.
  • The Adapter is rated at 220-240 V and 5 A.
  • Often times the Type D and Type M sockets are paired next to each other on a switchboard so make sure you identify your socket correctly before plugging the adapter in.
  • A Type M plug has larger pins since it is used for larger appliances, so look out for larger holes in the socket - if your adapter is hanging loose it is likely you plugged it into a Type M socket
