Features to Consider While Selecting an Ideal Electric Plug

  • Safety - Safety is the primary concern when buying electric plugs. You must look for plugs that have in-built safety features like surge protection, grounding pins, and insulation to lower the risk of electric shock.
  • Voltage – This is the next feature to consider. You must ensure that the plug’s current ratings and voltage should match the gadgets’ requirements that you want to connect.
  • Durable quality – While choosing plugs, make sure to select the ones that are made of durable components to withstand wear and tear.
  • Universal Compatibility – Look for plugs with universal compatibility so that you can use multiple devices.
  • User-friendly – Choose electric plug topsthat come with user-friendly features like simple to insert and remove the device, ergonomic design, etc.

Commonly Used Electrical Plug-Tops

In India, two types of electrical plug tops are commonly used – two-pin and three-pin plug tops.

  • Two-Pin Plugs – As the name suggests, two-pin plugs come with 2-pins, one of which is attached to the ‘hot’ and the other to the ‘neutral’ slot of the socket. The hot pin is joined to the hot slot of the socket and pulls current from the socket to power the load. The neutral pin joined to the neutral socket slot helps the current flow back to the power source and into the socket.
  • Three-Pin Plugs - A three-pin plug has three pins attached to the plug top. Here, the third pin is known as the earthing or grounding pin, which is connected to the ground wire of an electrical system. This pin lies between the hot and neutral pins. The third pin comes in touch with the socket first and ensures a safe route for the device in case of a short circuit.

Uses of 3-pin and 2-pin plugs

  • Three-pin plugs are specifically used for metal body appliances like refrigerators, microwaves, etc.
  • These appliances are earthed or grounded to prevent any leakage of electricity into their metal body
  • The two-pin plugs are used to power devices like TVs, internet routers, etc.
  • So, the 2-pin plugs generally connect low-power-consuming equipment
