Technical specification
  • The Type N Adapter has 3 round pins in the shape of an obtuse angled triangle. One of the 3 pins is a grounding pin.
  • Do not confuse the Type N Adapter with the Type J Adapter because they look quite identical but the Earthing pin is spaced differently for both adapters and hence they cannot be used interchangeably.
  • So make sure you do not mistakenly try to jam your Type N Adapter into a Type J socket thinking it should fit because of the identical shapes.
  • Type N adapters are rated 220-240 V and 10 A.
