How is Thailand Power Plugs?

Two prongs and three-prong receptacle are the two major power plugs in Thailand. Most sockets in Thailand are type A with two prongs, missing the third grounding prong at the bottom. The partial place is three-prong receptacle, which accommodate both flat prongs (like in the U.S. and Japan) and round prongs (like much of Europe and Asia).  


Can I Use My Digital Products in Thailand?

If the standard voltage in your country is in between 220 - 240 V (like UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa), you can use your own electric appliances in Thailand.

If you have an appliance with a 3-prong plug but the wall offers only a 2-prong receptacle, then it is recommended that you NOT break off the third prong but instead buy an adapter plug at the hardware store.

If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100 V - 127 V (like US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a voltage converter in Thailand.


Can I Buy the Transformer or Adapter Plugs in Thailand?

Yes. Adapter plugs to go between the different receptacles can be purchased for cheap at hardware stores all over. You'd better buy an adapter plugs in advance for notebook computer, phone chargers, razors, etc. You can buy it in any 7-11 convenience stores in Thailand if you forget to take.
