Plug Type C

Used in: Europe, with the exception of the UK, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta (see complete list of countries on the right)


The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs.


Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
