Electrical socket (plug type)
27th March, 2008
I tried a quick search and couldnt come up with an answer...what type of electrical sockets are used in thailand? (bringing my laptop)
And is this type also found in Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam?

Just to clarify what I read on the travelfish website:
"Thailand's voltage is 220-240AC, 50 Hertz. The plugs in Thailand are not standardised -- there are at least three different types, some two pin, some three, so bring a universal adapter."
What exactly is the two pin (Australia, North america, or europe), and what is the three pin?

im sure its a 2 pin in most places. but you can buy an adaptor in any major city when you get there.

2 pins is the most common, but I have seen 3 pin (not British 3 pin) around. I think the 2 pin is the same as European 2 pin.

2 Pin is ungrounded, 3 Pin is grounded and may be found in more modern structures. You're on your own using 2 Pin. I've luged a laptop around on two trips for a total of ten months with no problems. If it's rainy season and an electrical storm is nearby I would unplug till the storm is over! Go to a hardware store, they are usally all in the same area, or Tesco and look for an extension cord. They are very cheap. They are plastic, round, about six inches across, two inches thick and have about six feet of cord, winds into the unit. Makes it easy to use your machine anywhere in your room or at the outside table. Look on the power block on your cord. It should say 110/240 volts, which means the power adapter automatically decides which power to use. Sawassdee
