What are the different types of plugs used in the world?

When you go on a trip out of the country, it can be a real headache to connect your devices to a power outlet.

There are no less than 14 different types of plugs/outlets (male and female) in the world.

Each country, or group of countries, has adopted a type of power outlet based on its power grid, current voltage, or current electrical protection standards. That's why you will need an AC adapter in your suitcase.

This guide will help you take stock of the different types of electrical outlets.
