Key Features to Consider While Purchasing Electrical Socket

Below are some features that you may like to consider while planning to buy electric sockets for your use:

  1. Purpose of the Socket - You can buy the best socket to suit your requirements only when you know the purpose that the socket is needed to serve. So, you may like to know the voltage, current, etc., that you need from a socket to buy the best one. It is good to choose a socket according to your requirements.
  2. Efficiency and Reliability – Electrical sockets serve a fundamental purpose in residential infrastructure, facilitating the distribution of electricity throughout the home. It is imperative to ensure that these sockets are designed to conduct electricity both swiftly and efficiently. Consequently, the selection of electrical sockets must prioritize reliability, safety, and efficiency.
  3. Quality of material used – The material used to produce the socket is also important to consider in terms of the suitability of the socket. Not many may consider it an important feature while buying a socket. However, the fact is that it is indeed a crucial thing to take note of. This is because the material used in a socket determines the socket's resistance. Hence, pick sockets with robust and high-quality materials to reduce the risk of electrical hazards and regular replacements.
  4. Warranty available and durability – Whenever you buy any electrical equipment, it is very important to consider things like warranty and durability. A sturdy socket will last long and offer durability without any functionality issues.
  5. Compatibility - It is also equally important to check the socket well to ensure that it complies with your requirements in your locality, depending on its voltage and other aspects.
  6. Safety is the most important aspect to consider while purchasing sockets. Look for sockets with built-in safety features to help prevent fluctuations and accidents related to power.
  7. Quantity of socket points – Buy sockets depending on the number of required outlets. For example, how many devices do you want a particular outlet to allow, and how much voltage will it require?

Types of Electrical Sockets Available

The socket is the channel through which your electrical appliances receive electric current, allowing them to operate smoothly. Sockets are available in different sizes and shapes depending on their purpose and other features. However, their basic functionality remains the same.

The common sockets available are electrical sockets 3-pin, socket 5-pin, socket 16-amp, etc., which are generally used for different purposes at home and offices. Besides, the voltage of the sockets also differentiates them in terms of the current allowed to pass.

Let’s take a look at some types of sockets:

  • Two-pin sockets – The 2-pin electrical sockets come with two connection slots for connections that are ungrounded
  • Three-pin sockets – The 3-pin electrical socket provides a ground pin that avoids electric shocks coming from the loose wirings.
  • Five-pin sockets – The 5-pin sockets are formed by combining two-pin and three-pin sockets together.
  • Universal or International sockets – The universal sockets are designed to have pinholes to accommodate a diverse range of plug sockets. These are mostly used in countries in Europe and America.
