I want to set a scenario inside for you. I’m sure that there’s also a chance that this has happened to you a few times. So you’ve bought a new electronic device or appliance that’s imported. Perhaps you had it ordered online, or you bought it in a store where imported products can be bought, or you asked someone coming home from a foreign country to buy it for you. But as you un-box it, try to make it work, you find out that the electrical socket outlet it needs to be plugged into is not available in this country! That’s an immediate bummer. Although not all is lost since there are a lot of adaptors that can be purchased for that very purpose. But wouldn’t it be a little more convenient if there’s no need for such in the first place? I mean, it gives room for having it misplaced, and if it gets broken, you know that it’s pretty much useless. So knowing this, what should you do to avoid being disappointed? The quick and easy solution is to KNOW your electrical socket outlets.

Commonly used socket outlets vary from country to country. There are almost 20 different socket outlets being used throughout the whole world today. This will explain why an imported electric product from a country that has a different standard socket outlet will not match your country’s standard socket outlet. In this country, there is a basic of 5 different types. By the end of this article you will be acquainted with them so that next time, when you’re buying an imported electric appliance, you can discern whether or not the sockets in your house can welcome them without the need for adaptors.

Meiji Universal Socket Outlet


This type of socket outlet will accept most kinds of plugs. It can accept Type A, or the most common one with two parallel blades, Type B, or the plug with two parallel blades with a circular ground a little above the middle of the two blades, and Type C, with two roundish, circular pins. Most adaptors have their receiving end with this type of socket because it accepts plenty of kinds of plugs. Having most of your electrical socket outlets as this is very convenient.

Parallel Outlets

Parallel with ground.

Also called the Type B electrical outlet, this type of socket outlet includes two blades with a ground in the middle. This is especially useful if you use a laptop charger. Although more common, this socket outlet is not as universal. You can only fit a Type B or a Type A plug.

Meiji outlets

Parallel flat blades.

It’s also called Type A. This is the single most common socket outlet in this country, but unfortunately, it’s also the most exclusive. It’s for this reason that you buy adaptors – since Type A sockets can only accept one kind of plug.

Round to Flat Universal Outlets

Round to flat outlet.

This outlet is more common than the parallel with ground, but it’s less common than the parallel flat one. This outlet will accept Type A as well as Type C – two round pins. This also offers quite a convenience since it accepts two types of plugs. That means that you won’t need an adaptor.

Aircon Outlet Philippines

Three-pin rectangular.

Officially labeled as Type G, this is the kind of outlet that is usually needed by air conditioning units. This is very exclusive and is of British origin. However, most households or buildings that use air conditioning units in this country have that one outlet just for the air conditioner. Sometimes, not even adaptors can accept a Type G plug, that’s why a special socket is needed.

There you go! It’s a quick list that should guide you through – not only in buying electrical appliances, but in deciding what’s the most convenient socket to have in your house.

Have you ever experienced pulling out the adapter charger of your mobile phone and had the shoLight Switchesck of your life because the whole outlet got plugged out as well? Or have you heard of an incident wherein someone was turning on or off a switch and by doing so, his or her finger pressed all the way to the utility box inside it? If you or someone you know has had this type of EMBARRASSING EXPERIENCE, let us help you overcome it. But for those who have not, by reading this article, we can assure you that it won’t happen to you.

You need 3 things

When a switch or an outlet is being installed, as you already know, you need 3 things: a utility box, wire (AWG #12) and the switch with plate or outlet with plate. You first remove the plate; Outlet Platesand then screw together the body of the switch or outlet then put back its plate. The problem however is that the plates of the switches and outlets sold in the market are mostly of plastic strap in nature. This strap is found at the back sides of the switch and outlet nearest to the plate. And usually, HERE IS WHERE THE PROBLEM BEGINS.

Plastic strap is not strong enough

Due to excess pressure, wear and tear and overuse, the switch or the outlet moves deeper into plate, thus the mishaps mentioned earlier happens. The plastic strap is not strong enough to take on the pressure, the repeated turn on/s and off/s to your switch and the plug-in and out/s to your outlets.

Be sure to spend wisely

But the inevitable and necessary gesture of turning on and off your switch lights helps you to save energy. The same thing goes for plugging-in and out your flattening iron and other appliances after use, correct? Yes! This act also avoids unwanted damages and expenses to your house. But what do you do about your wiring devices? Should you really just keep buying them every so often? Take note commodities keep increasing, be sure to spend wisely.

Make use of full metal straps

We propose that you use Meiji switches and outlets. This eliminates the problems of the previously mentioned issues because only Meiji’s switches and outlets make use of full metal straps to the plate so that your switches and outlets are protected. As the company has been in the electrical business for more than 20 years now, it has developed Meiji wiring devices to the markets’ ultimate need.

Non-fading polycarbonate

Meiji switches and outlets have a non-fading polycarbonate glossy-white finish. Using it for long periods of time would not be a problem both physically and aesthetically but is in fact expected. It could easily match and blend in with the interior of your home.

Practicality, mix-and-match, and cost efficient

The Meiji Classic Series has a complete line of wiring devices including telephone modular outlets, door bell push buttons, computer outlets, surface type switches and outlets and many others. Aside from its aesthetics and durability, it also promotes practicality with its mix-and-match feature. In case you would want to combine a switch together with your outlet so that you no longer need to plug-in and out your appliance, but just turn on the switch; you may do so with Meiji wiring devices. Being so. it is very cost efficient because not only does it save you the time and effort to plug-in and out an item, but also saves you the money to buy another set of outlet, switch and wires because it got worn-out.

Parallel screw type terminals

Meiji outlets also have parallel screw type terminals as its unique feature. This is because in the Philippines, the wire size commonly used is 3.5mm2 (AWG #12 Stranded) thus the conventional snap type connection cannot accommodate the thickness of the said wires. Given Meiji’s parallel screw type outlet feature, you can easily connect the 3.5mm2 wires into the pair of spacious screw type slot and interconnect several outlets in one circuit, making it a better and more convenient choice.

Safety and reliability

Aside from its features, you can also be assured of the safety and reliability of Meiji’s wiring devices as it has ICC Certificates and passed international tests.

Don’t underestimate your home for a lesser cost of wiring devices. Choose Meiji wiring devices-less hassle, better living.
