How to identify Type I Adapter and Socket?

Our Type I Adapters
- The Type I Adapter has 3 long, thin flat pins arranged in an inverted triangular shape that looks like a V.
- The third lowermost pin is the grounding pin and there are Type I plugs without the grounding pin (plug with only 2 pins) as well.
- Type I adapters are rated 220-240 V and 10 A.
- While using the adapter in Australia, their standard rating is 10 A but sockets rated 15 A are also found and the hole for the ground pin is wider in the 15 A socket accordingly.
- So make sure that your adapter is rated for 10 A since a smaller ground pin will fit into the 15 A socket but a larger 15 A ground pin on the adapter will not go into the 10 A socket.
Guidelines for use
Make sure the device you need to charge or use is switched off.
Check the Voltage guide to see if yo uneed a Voltage Converter
If you require a Voltage Converter, then plug your device cable or charger into the Voltage Converter first and then plug the Voltage Converter into your Type I Travel Adapter.
If you aren't using a Converter, plug the device cable/charger directly into the Type I Travel Adapter.
If there's a switch beside the wall socket, make sure it is in the OFF position before you plug in your device.
