The 10 A rated adapter is compatible with both Type L & Type C sockets whereas the 16 A rated adapter is compatible only with Type L sockets.

The universal receptacle of the adapter accepts plugs from devices of all countries of the world so do not worry about compatibility with your device while purchasing one.

However, be sure to check for your devices' voltage requirements to see if you need a voltage converter in addition.

  • As mentioned above the compatibility of the Type L plug varies with its Amp rating and so there are two types of Type L plugs available.
  • The 10 A Type L Adapter has 3 round pins lined up in linear manner and spaced 5.5 mm apart from each other with a diameter of 4 mm in thickness.
  • The middle pin is the grounding pin as is in the 16 A Type L Adapter as well. However, the 16 A version has thicker pins - 5 mm thick and they are separated by a distance of 8 mm between themselves in a linear pattern.
