This plug adapter changes the shape of an appliance's plug so that can plug into a "Type F" German CEE 7/4 "Schuko" style electrical socket or a "Type E" French CEE 7/5 socket. It can plug into a "Type B" North American NEMA 5-15 or Japanese JIS C 8303 Class I Grounded socket.
The receptacle end of the adapter can accept any standard household plug type from any country, except the "Type M" South African SABS1661 (Old British BS-546 "Large") plug. The plug end is a NEMA 5-15P.
10 Amps capacity at 240V, 15Amps at 120V.
This travel plug adapter is compatible with "Type B " North American NEMA 5-15 and Japanese JIS C 8303 Class I Grounded sockets. Although the two standards are technically different, they are practically interchangeable, and are grouped together under the general, unofficial "Type B" classification.
The adapter's socket is universal. It will accept any standard household grounded or non-grounded appliance plug, with one exception: the South African SABS1661 plug (which is actually an old British standard, the 15A "large" version of the BS-546 plug.) Different types of plugs fit into the socket end of the adapter as shown below. Grounded Schuko plugs, whether the "Type F" German style with side grounding clips, or the "Type E" French style, will fit into the socket end of the adapter, but the grounding connection will not be made.
