The voltage in Thailand is 220 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. So, if you are bringing appliances, electronics, or tools from the United States or anywhere else with a 110-volt current, you will need a voltage converter , or you’ll burn out whatever you plug in.
What plug sockets are used in Thailand ? For Thailand there are four associated plug types, types A, B and C. Plug type A is the plug which has two flat parallel pins, plug type B has two flat parallel pins and a grounding pin and plug type C has two round pins. Thailand operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.
Thailand’s electrical system is 220V at 50Hz and Thailand uses Type A and Type C electrical plug types. Fortunately, more and more electronics sold today can handle both 110V or 220V interchangeably, with the biggest consideration being the type of plug that you plug into the wall socket.
Using a USB 30 pin connector with a two pinned Type A power adapter to power your iPhone with a Thai power outlet. In order to supply power to your iPhone from a Thai power outlet you’ll need a Type A USB power adapter and a USB to Apple 30 pin cable (usually included with the device by Apple).
Many Thai outlets will take an American 2 prong bladed plug . The problem is with the voltage. If your required voltage is only 110 volts (normal voltage for US ) you will fry your device! Most chargers now will take a range of voltage from 110 to over 220 volts.
The United States and Canada use a supply voltage of 120 volts ± 6%. Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, North America , Central America and some parts of northern South America use a voltage between 100 V and 127 V.
You might need a voltage adapter for Thailand . Thailand voltage is 220 Volts at 50Hz while American voltage is 120 Volts at 60Hz. However, if your device is 110 Volts and you plug it in a 220 Volts Thai outlet, you will fry it. In this case, you need a voltage adapter to make your devices usable in Thailand .
If you want to charge the iPhone from a Thai power outlet you will need to use a Type C USB power adapter and a USB to Apple 30 pin cable (Apple should normally supply this USB cable when you buy the iPhone).
You can use your electric appliances in Thailand , because the standard voltage (220 V) is (more or less) the same as in the United Kingdom (230 V). So you don’t need a voltage converter in Thailand , when living in the United Kingdom .
You can use your electric appliances in Thailand , because the standard voltage (220 V) is (more or less) the same as in Australia (230 V). So you don’t need a voltage converter in Thailand , when living in Australia .
In Singapore the supply voltage is 230V . If the appliance is a single voltage rated appliance, it will need to operate at the same voltage as the supply voltage of the country i.e. 230V .
In the UK, the declared voltage and tolerance for an electricity supply is 230 volts -6%, +10%. This gives an allowed voltage range of 216.2 volts to 253.0 volts.
You can use your electric appliances in Thailand , because the standard voltage (220 V) is (more or less) the same as in India (230 V). So you don’t need a voltage converter in Thailand , when living in India .
Apple products, such as your iPhone , iPad and laptop, are dual voltage , therefore you do not need a converter. You can tell if you if your electronic device is dual voltage by looking on the voltage rating on the device.
Adapters are generally much cheaper to buy in Thailand than in your home country. If you don’t find one at the 7-11, go to MBK or Pantip Plaza – there’s plenty to choose from there.
