What is the voltage in Indonesia?

In Indonesia the standard voltage is 230 V and the frequency is 50 Hz. You can use your electric appliances in Indonesia, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220 – 240 V (as is in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa).

So, do I need a voltage converter in Indonesia?

If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100 V – 127 V (as is in the US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a voltage converter in Indonesia. You can find voltage converters at Amazon. You can also consider a combined power plug adapter/voltage converter.

What kind of money do they use in Bali?

Bali, one of the Indonesian islands in the South Pacific, uses Indonesia’s rupiah as its main form of currency. Travelers heading to the island must ensure they have an understanding of the rupiah in advance to avoid being given an incorrect amount of change or an unfair exchange rate.

Do I need a plug adapter for Australia?

The plugs in Australia have two flat metal pins shaped live a “V” and some may contain a third flat pin in the centre. * Note: Visitors from New Zealand do not need either a voltage converter or power adapter. Your appliances will work in Australia.

What type of plug is used in Australia?

The plugs in Australia have two flat metal pins shaped live a “V” and some may contain a third flat pin in the centre. * Note: Visitors from New Zealand do not need either a voltage converter or power adapter. Your appliances will work in Australia.

Is China plug same as Australia?

In China most wall sockets look like this, having a three pin plug which is common to Australia and New Zealand. The two vertical pin socket is widely used, and if you buy cheap appliances in China they will mostly come with this plug. Taiwan uses the same standards as US and Canada.

What is a US plug?

The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around.

What is an US plug?

AC power plugs and sockets are devices that allow electrically operated equipment to be connected to the primary alternating current (AC) power supply in a building. Electrical plugs and sockets differ in voltage and current rating, shape, size and type of connectors.

What is a US plug and EU plug?

This adapter allows European (except UK and Ireland) appliances to be used in the United States. It converts two round prongs European plug to two flat prongs American plug. This adapter can be used safely for supply voltage up to 250V, and current up to 6A.

What is a EU plug?

The Europlug is a flat, two-pole, round-pin domestic AC power plug, rated for voltages up to 250 V and currents up to 2.5 A. It is a compromise design intended to connect low-power Class II appliances safely to the many different forms of round-pin domestic power socket used across Europe.

What is US plug type?

The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly.

What type of adapter do I need for South Africa?

Universal Travel plug adapter for S. Africa – 3 round pin plug. Good for Grounded or Non-grounded plugs from other countries. Note: This does not convert the voltage from 110V to 220/240V. You will need a Voltage Converter for that.

What does US Plug mean?

Europe’s electrical system is different from ours in two ways: the voltage of the current and the shape of the plug. American appliances run on 110 volts, while European appliances are 220 volts. Today’s gadgets are “dual voltage,” which means they work on both American and European current.

Are electrical outlets AC or DC?

Stationary appliances that use electricity directly from an outlet – lamps, refrigerators, washing machines – use AC power. Because the electric grid provides AC, the electricity must get converted to DC when you want to charge a portable device. This conversion is done by a “rectifier”.

Why are there holes in the prongs of an electrical plug?

If you were to take apart an outlet and look at the contact wipers that the prongs slide into, you would find that they have have bumps on them. These bumps fit into the holes so that the outlet can grip the plug’s prongs more firmly. It also improves the contact between the plug and the outlet.

Why are there holes in the prongs of a plug?

If you were to take apart an outlet and look at the contact wipers that the prongs slide into, you would find that they have have bumps on them. These bumps fit into the holes so that the outlet can grip the plug’s prongs more firmly. It also improves the contact between the plug and the outlet.

Why are there three prongs on a plug?

The idea behind grounding is to protect the people who use metal-encased appliances from electric shock. The casing is connected directly to the ground prong. With the case grounded, the electricity from the hot wire flows straight to ground, and this trips the breaker in the breaker box.

What is the purpose of the ground prong?

Briefly, the purpose of the third prong is to act as a ground connection to improve safety in the event of either a short circuit within the appliance that otherwise might result in delivering a shock to the user, or a surge delivered to the appliance due to lightning or another malfunctioning device attached to the

What is a ground wire used for?

The ground wire is an additional path for electrical current to return safely to the ground without danger to anyone in the event of a short circuit. In that instant, the short would cause the current to flow through the ground wire, causing a fuse to blow or a circuit breaker to trip.

What will happens if we connect neutral to ground?

A second problem with connecting the ground to the neutral happens if your neutral wire breaks between the outlet and your service entrance. Given a ground to neutral connection, this will cause the chassis of your device to be at the “hot” voltage, which is very dangerous.

How does an earth cable work?

The earth wire creates a safe route for the current to flow through if the live wire touches the casing. You would get an electric shock if the live wire inside an appliance, such as a cooker, came loose and touched the metal casing. This breaks the fuse and disconnects the appliance.

What happens if you touch live and neutral?

If a fault occurs where the live wire connects to the case, the earth wire allows a large current to flow through the live and earth wires. This overheats the fuse which melts and breaks the circuit. If a faulty live wire touches the inside of the plastic case there’s little risk as the case is an insulator.

Can a neutral wire be connected to ground?

In the electrical trade, the conductor of a 2-wire circuit connected to the supply neutral point and earth ground is referred to as the “neutral”. All neutral wires of the same earthed (grounded) electrical system should have the same electrical potential, because they are all connected through the system ground.

What kind of money do they use in Bali?

Bali, one of the Indonesian islands in the South Pacific, uses Indonesia’s rupiah as its main form of currency. Travelers heading to the island must ensure they have an understanding of the rupiah in advance to avoid being given an incorrect amount of change or an unfair exchange rate.
