Do you know which AC power plug and wall socket are​ used on your destination when traveling? The official sources on the web are not always up-to-date or reflecting on what's used by common people in some countries.

This app contains information about wall plugs, sockets, and voltage in over 250 countries and regions. Also features an easy to use navigation, free text search and option to save your favorite destinations. Each plug type and the socket are illustrated with clear, ​sharp images that you can share with friends.

An essential app for travelers


Anyone who has traveled abroad understand the frustration of not being able to use your electronic devices because you can't charge or turn them on due to electrical plug incompatibility.
This app is an absolute must have for anyone who travels. Because it not only describe the plugs supported in the destination country, in a complicated country like Brazil it even shows the different voltage of the main cities there.

Even if you only travel once to abroad, you can't go wrong with this app.

Plugs of The World

D. Hill

This is a simple, well designed electronic outlet reference application that makes it easier for users or travelers to know what power sources are available in other areas around the world. Users of the app can search by country, by type of plug, and by color areas on a map. In case users are unfamiliar with certain plugs by name the app shows a image of the exact power source. For those who travel a lot and are power users of devices or just may need to look up a power source once or a few times this app is great to have.

Simple & Elegant


A must have for the world traveler! A simple and elegant user interface. You can favor the countries you visit more often for easy access.

Be aware that when you open the app you'll see the main page which says Plugs of the World. I thought the app was still in the process of opening but you have to click the blue plugs menu in the upper left corner to start using the app.
