(If this is not correct, perhaps your plugs are from another country's system. You can start again choosing another country of origin.)

Considerations for Brazil

Multiple readers have reported that Brazil uses mostly type "C" and 220V (hotels and big cities). Officially the plug type "N" is the definite and standard nowadays, it can be used with plugs type "C". How much and and to what extend the standard is enforced is unknown to us and it will depend on where you go, expect high variance in its enforce.
Considering Brazil is a big country, it might be possible your location might be using 110V and flat type plugs (A & B). Sockets type "I" are less common but still possible to find them, i.e. in an air-con. We keep the lesser common outlet-types and voltages in our database for your consideration.
