The power plugs and sockets in Colombia
For Colombia, there are two associated plug types : the type A and the type B. Check the following pictures :
Type A : Is the plug type which has two flat parallel pins, is mainly used in Central and North America , Japan and China. This plug socket works only with plug type A.
