Power Plugs

The power supply in South Korea is a standard 220 voltage and accessed by mostly type F plugs as seen above. This is the type used in the majority of Europe. When traveling to South Korea be aware that your appliances may need a voltage converter as well as a power adapter. To see what is needed for your electrical gear, go through the 2 steps below for each electrical item you plan on packing.

Step 1

Check the label of your charging cables or appliance. If you only see a single number like 120V (as shown), your device is considered SINGLE VOLTAGE ONLY and will need a voltage converter for South Korea. Please note SINGLE VOLTAGE over 200 watt (hair dryers, irons, kettles etc) are not recommended for international travel.

On the other hand, if you check your label and see a number-set like 100-240 V your device is considered dual voltage. In this case, you will only need a power adapter. You can shop online for adapters in your country below.

Step 2

The product links below have been researched to find the best solution for the country you are traveling from. They are affiliate links, meaning we receive a commission from purchases made through links.

While some products are the same in nature, clicking on your country guarantees you are taken to the correct store. In each case, products with E/F type adapters were chosen over c type. Our experience has been that C type sockets can slip out when any weight is attached.

This product is a set of 3 with F type sockets that will function in Korea. The product recommended here is NOT a voltage converter, read appliance/device labels carefully.

United States Adapter Only Set

The standard voltage in South Korea is 220v but 110-120v in the United States. Appliances or devices under 200 watt that are SINGLE VOLTAGE (110v ~ or 120 v~ on appliance label) need a voltage converter. We recommend the Ceptics Travel Voltage Converter - SWadAPt - A, B, C, E/F, G, I as a reputable product with the adapters necessary for South Korea. Please read the product description carefully to determine suitability for your needs.
