Hay 15 tipos diferentes de tomacorrientes en uso en el mundo hoy en día. Estos han sido asignados letras por la Administración de Comercio Internacional (ITA) del Departamento de Comercio de los Estados Unidos, comenzando con A y siguiendo el alfabeto. Los enchufes tipo A/B son los utilizados en los Estados Unidos y Japón, el tipo G se encuentra en el Reino Unido, el tipo D es el usado para viajar a la India, el tipo E/F son usados en países como Francia, Alemania y España, el tipo G es el utilizado en el Reino Unido, el tipo H es el utilizado en Israel, el tipo I es el utilizado en Australia, el tipo J es el utilizado en Suiza, el tipo K es el utilizado en Dinamarca, el tipo L es el utilizado en Italia, el tipo M es el utilizado en Sudáfrica, el tipo N es el utilizado internacionalmente, y el tipo O es el utilizado en Tailandia.

Es importante tener en cuenta que estos tipos de enchufes y tomacorrientes no siempre son compatibles entre un país y otro. Por lo tanto, se necesita verificar los estándares del país al que se viaja para asegurar que tus dispositivos reciban la cantidad de electricidad que necesitan. Para ello, es necesario contar con un adaptador de enchufe, que permite conectar un transformador o un convertidor de un país a la toma de corriente de otro país. Esto nos permitirá cargar nuestros gadgets sin problemas durante nuestros viajes.
