Where are they used?

Where are they used?

The Chinese plug is rated 10A 250V; a larger 16A version with larger pins is also in the standard for higher current applications.  The three pin plug has live and neutral pins set at a 60 degree angle similar to the Australian, but the 2 pin plug has parallel pins. 

Regardless of plug or socket type, domestic voltage is 220V 50Hz.  The Chinese-type plug is used in mainland China / PROC People’s Republic of China. 

The former British and Portuguese dependencies of Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR respectively use different plugs.  The separate nation of Taiwan (Republic of China) also uses a different type plug also – see plugfinder or relevant country pages.

Chinese GB2099 – China standard – an overview

The IRAM 2073 standard – an overviewWhilst visually similar to the Australian type, the Chinese plug has thinner, 1mm longer pins and no sleeving on the live and neutral pins; only the Chinese plug has CCC approval. 

Chinese sockets have the earth aperture at the top, which is the opposite of Australian sockets: this orientation is colloquially called the emu foot socket in Australia, as it resembles that bird’s footprint. 

The Argentinian plug is similar, but has reversed polarity.  Chinese manisleads must be on Chinese-approved RVV cable – see bulk cable page for more information on Chinese RVV flex.  Our expert technical team is on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have.
