Where are they used?

Where are they used?

South Korea uses the KCS8305 which is equivalent to the European CEE7 standard plugs and sockets, but with Korean KTL or KC approvals.  The earthed and unearthed 16A types have 4.8mm pins spaced 19mm apart and are the same as the Schuko and CEE7/7 type plugs used in Europe. 

The Korean version of the 2.5A Europlug has straight slightly thicker 4.8mm untapered pins and can be sometimes up-rated to 3A.  Both types are rated up to 250 Volts.  Domestic voltage is 220V 60Hz, and there is a requirement for sockets to have child-proof shutters.

 

North Korea The People’s Democratic Republic of Korea – DPRK or North Korea – uses the two pin European style plugs as South Korean at 220V, along with two pin US style plugs at 110V. 

North of the 38th parallel, despite coal and hydroelectric power stations, the electricity transmission grid is poor, resulting in rationing and blackouts, especially in regions farther away from Pyongyang. 

We have less information on North Korea, and exporting there may require additional licences.
