The type that works in europe, ie 2 pin round, work in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, it some places in both Cambodia and Vietnam you will also find 3 pin square sockets, the same as you find in the UK, but these tend to be in the better hotels and they are universal sockets so they will accept the 2 pins as well in any case.
These adaptors are very easy to find in Thai markets that cater for tourists and are cheaper than buying them here.
Also the North American style two flat pins works in Thai electrical sockets.
Thanks guys, that saves me a bit of hassle so i dont have to go looking for a new one
This is a great reference for travellers..
I read the link posted above, and just want to double check... is any type of converter needed for north american two flat pin systems to plug in since there is a slight difference in voltage and current? Just don't want to break any electronics or damage the outlets.
There is actually an extreme difference in voltage, between North American and Thailand. Thailand is almost double the voltage. You will either need to bring only "universal" electronics. or a voltage transformer.
Check you equipment. Much of the newer electronics is "universal" - it switches automatically. Thailand is 220 volts AC (220 VAC) 50 hertz/cycle (50 Htz). If your stuff lists these standards, you're OK.
Thanks So much Curt!
