This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, M into outlets type: I.

This is a very cheap adapter without loose terminal and finger protection; it does have earth pass-though (good); but no good grip because of so many different supported plugs. We recommend to use a more expensive option if available.

Adapters you can buy

You can buy the following multi-purpose adapters from Amazon. Please also take a look at the recommended gadgets for your trip.

Hertz

Equal Hertz

This is the perfect situation. You will not have any clock shift issue with the same Hertz.
