Europlug Power Plug And Outlet Socket Type C

  • commonly used in Europe, South America & Asia (for a full list, click here)
  • 2 pins
  • not grounded
  • 2.5 A
  • almost always 220 – 240 V (which is same as our electric heat pack voltage)
  • socket compatible with plug type C

Type C is used in all countries of Europe except the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta (see list below).

Type C is probably the single most widely used international plug.

This two-wire plug is ungrounded and has two round prongs. It is popularly known as the Europlug which is described in CEE 7/16. The plug has two 4 mm round pins, measuring 19 mm in length on centres spaced 18.6 mm apart at the base and 17.5 mm apart at the tip. The two pins have 10 mm long insulated sleeves.

They converge slightly, but they are relatively flexible which allows the plug to mate with any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 17.5 – 19 mm centres. The plug is generally limited for use in class II applications that require 2.5 amps or less.

It is, of course, unpolarised.

It is commonly used in all countries of Europe except in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta. It is also used in various parts of the developing world. Whereas type C plugs are very commonly used, this is not the case for type C sockets.

Our electric heat pack power plug is the 2 pin Europlug type C that fits perfectly to type E, F, J, K or N:

If you stay in Malaysia or Singapore (I stay in Singapore), our power plugs are type G:

It's ok, you can use a simple adaptor to help plug in or even plug in directly with help of a 2 pin plastic adaptor - and you're good to go =)

our electrical heat pack europlug 2 pin type c is suitable for use in following countries:

Means that if your country is listed here, you can use our electrical heat packs to help your back pains (see our list of benefits here) or you can be our distributor in your own country too =)
