Israel power plug adapter voltage

You felt embarrassed to admit how many times when you forgot to bring the right electric adaptor for your vital appliances – your laptop, and your mobile phone. And you must go and buy a converter or adaptor at the airport, or oat an expensive tourist trap. Or you have a doubt about if your appliances will work in Israel or not because the multi-voltages and plugs make you confusing.

So what do you need to know?

Israel Voltage Requirements

In domestic electricity system in Israel is setup to support the following:

  • The Voltage of 230 volts single phase, which is similar to most European countries.  
  • The Frequency of 50 Hertz, also as in most of Europe.

        You coming from the United States or from any country that supports 110 volts, you may also need a converter to 220/230 volts.  The most modern devices such as mobile phones and laptops have a built-in transformer.  But if you have a 110 device, you do need an all-in-one converter and adaptor.

Adaptors Travel for the Israel Electric Plug Socket

Do you know that there are 15 different types of electrical outlet plugs in the world today?  So it can get confusing…

     In Israel, the traditional power socket uses plug type H.  Plug type H is unique to Israel and the West Bank. And this plug is grounded and has three round pins. This socket has three roundish pin holes to accept the H plug, and this type is unique but it is also working with plug C.

   In another hand, the newer versions of the ‘H’ socket from the past two decades can also support the standard double-pin, European C type plugs. But not always because the older sockets or some odd ones still don’t. In the newer hotels or the renovated ones, you will probably also find European C type sockets.  This plug type of sockets is common in South America, most of Europe and parts of Asia.  

  • The travelers from the United States and the United Kingdom will need adaptors that  can support C
  • and/or H sockets and plugs .
