Wonpro II Safety Shutters - the world's BEST, most compact, most easy to use design

  • "Safety Shutters" and "insulated power pins" are designed to prevent "accidental shock by 220v electricity", which can be deadly - This was why close to 150 years ago when the world was starting building electricity power plants, the great Mr. Thomas Edison insisted that US has to stay with 110v electricity to prevent too many human death by 220v electrical shock. 

  • "Safety Shutters" are British engineers answered to Mr. Thomas Edison's challenge. The UK socket is required to have built-in safety shutters. They apply the same rule to UK plug adapters, but couldn't really enforced it because there is no good adapter meeting their requirements.

  • Nowadays, more and more European countries are seeing this as an absolutely requirement to protect child safety. Lately we have seen a surge in demand on plug adapter with built-in safety shutters from Switzerland and other countries - even from Germany and France, which refused to adopt even the design of "insulated power pins" from the very beginning.

  • Our 25 years OLD safety shutters are half inside the plug adapter and half outside the plug adapter. This forces the very strange shape of WAS plug adapter and doubles its size. To meet the European requirement of 'no single plug pin can open the live socket' ... and leaving the other plug pin hanging outside, which is most dangerous situation to get shocked by 220v electricity ... To meet this requirement WAS is very difficult to use with all European plugs, and pretty much impossible to use with any US plug.  This is why WAS plug adapters DIED in the US market - It is a good design but completely unusable.

  • Our new safety shutters is one of our 3 new biggest innovations (pending 20 years of Innovations Patents). It solves 98+% of the WAS problems:

    • EA plug adapters with our new safety shutters are extremely easy to use with ALL European plugs.

    •  No problem with US 'curve end' plug, very easy to use.

    • For the small market still use US 'flat end' plug, simply insert the US plug at 45 degree. Problem solved.

    • US, Japan, Taiwan, etc. all use Type A and Type B plugs. All other countries have converted to use 'curve end' Type A/B plugs. Only a small market in US still use 'flat end' plug.  We estimate this 'flat end' Type A/B plugs are less than 30% ~ 40%, and continue to shrink its market share as we speak - because US manufactures want to export products to Japan, Taiwan and other countries.

    • In other words, we only have very minor issue with less than '0.4 plug' out of more than 20 different plugs out there This is why we claim we have solved 98+% of the OLD safety shutter problems.

    • Last but not the least, our Wonpro II new safety shutters are  completely contained inside the plug adapter itself. It requires no additional infrastructure to hold the old safety shutters which are half outside of the plug adapters. This makes our EA plug adapter with built-in safety shutters and EP plug adapter without safety shutters the exact same size. We built EP plug adapter because of the above strange plug adapter history in US. But we sincerely hope that US customers will be convinced and slowly adopt the EA adapters as the new standards - because most of our adapters are shipped to 220v countries to support our export needs.

Plug Adapter Burn Test


 Sources of the above "Plug Adapter Country Chart" super table:

In order to provide the most comprehensive plug adapter selection guide, we've combined information from the following sources, with proper modifications, additions, corrections, etc. based on the best of our knowledge:

(1)  World Electric Guide and Electricity around the world

The database from these two sites are considered to be the most accurate and most up-to-date.  Fortunately, information from these two sites are extremely similar, if not identical.  After a long research, we've chosen to use

◘    Table of Electrical Systems used worldwide from World Electric Guide as the baseline of the above super table, and

◘    Plugs and sockets from Electricity around the world as the baseline of the next section on "Plugs and Socket Types".

(2)  International Electric Supplies and Travel Oasis

World Electric Guide from the former and International Wall Outlet Plug Adapter Guide from the latter also contain a very comprehensive plug adapter database linked to specific Wonpro plug adapters.  These two databases are identical.

However, it is our opinion that information from these two sites is a bit obsolete / incorrect. Nevertheless, we still include their information in the above super table - mostly in smaller green font (see more detailed explanation later).

(3)   Plug Adapter Country Chart-2007

This is the double-column table we used for the last 5 years.  The same information is now merged into Column 5 in the above super table, "Wonpro Universal Plug Adapters". 

In addition, "Wonpro Country-Specific Power Cords" has been added to Column 6 in this super table. 


Plug adapters in  Bigger Blue Font  are the first choices.  Those in  smaller burgundy font  are the secondary choices.

For example, there are many pairs of  "WA-9, WA-9C"  listed side by side for many countries in the above table; i.e.,

WA-9,  the Schuko plug adapter with 4.8mm pin size, is the recommended choice for this country (an exact match).

WA-9C,  the ungrounded and smaller EU plug adapter with 4.0mm pin size,  can also be used too (a little "loose connection").

Plug adapters in smaller green font are listed as still being used in many countries. 

This is based on information from several different sources on the internet. They seem to depict a very different world from what  World Electric Guide  presents here.  Based on our experience, however, we believe the info from World Electric Guide is more    up-to-date. For example,  WA-10  is widely reported (by the other camp) as still used in many countries. To be on the safe side, and to make our database the most comprehensive one, we decide to append  WA-10  and  a few similar plugs  to the end of the corresponding country's plug adapter list,  That is, we believe "More information is better than less information",  and we believe "Over-prepared" is a much lesser crime than "Under-prepared" when it comes to international traveling.

This approach effectively makes Wonpro's new Plug Adapter Country Chart  the most comprehensive and the most COMPLETE plug adapter database.

Both WA-16 and WA-17 can be used with Type I socket. For simplicity, only the grounded WA-16 is listed for Type I socket. The ungrounded WA-17 is implied, but not explicitly listed.

WA-6 is listed for Type A socket. WA-5 is listed for Type B socket.  They are two different plug adapters for two different socket types.

There is no WE-109C power cord. Although Type C plug (the EU plug) is very popular, Type C socket is being phased out.  Type C plug and its adapter WA-9C  is very popular because it can mate with socket Types E, F, J, K, and L across Europe and many other countries. Type C socket, on the other hand, is an older and ungrounded socket type,  Nowadays most countries demand grounded sockets to be installed in new buildings - Type C socket is being replaced by socket Type E / F / J / K / L (depending on the country).  Therefore, there is no ungrounded WE-109C power cord - For the same safety reason, all power strips should use grounded power cord!

Countries with both Type A and Type B outlets, WE-106 with "removable ground pin" is the ideal choice. 

US uses both Type A and Type B outlets. Since all US wall outlets are Type B, WE-105 is the choice of power cord for US.

Because of its small plug head,  WE-112 can be used with both recessed and non-recessed outlets in Italy.  That is, there are two types of plug adapter WA-12 and WA-12A,  but only one power cord WE-112.

The same is true for WE-111.  There are two types of plug adapters WA-11A and WA-11,  but only one power cord WE-111 for both recessed and non-recessed Switzerland sockets.

Please note that the information presented here is based on the best of our knowledge.  We, however, have no way to guarantee all information to be 100% accurate and up-to-date all the time - not only because this is a constantly changing world, but also because it is a real “jungle” out there!

Plug Adapter FAQ

Naming         “WA” stands for “Wonpro Adapter”. The suffix characters ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ after the number are mostly based on our own production history. We tried, but there is no unified consistent meaning on how this suffix is used.

 

WA-9             This is the Schuko type grounded plug adapter - its grounding is the flat metal on the bottom and on the side. Half of the WA-9 plug adapter is to be buried inside the recessed outlet. It uses the larger pin size: 4.8mm, 4.8mm. Note that WA-9 is specifically designed to meet the requirements of both Type E and Type F outlets:

  • Type E outlet (ground contact at the bottom, for France)

  • Type F outlet (ground contact on the side, for Germany)

In other words, WA-9 is used in Germany, France, and their countries they occupied during the colonial time - i.e., WA-9 is used for most of the continental Europe.

 

WA-9A          Ungrounded, smaller pin size: 4.0mm, 4.0mm,  for non-recessed outlets.

 

WA-9B          Ungrounded, bigger  pin size: 4.8mm, 4.0mm,  for non-recessed outlets.

 

WA-9C          This is the new EU plug (European Union plug). It has the extra inlay plastic to connect to a recessed outlet.
The idea behind the EU plug is to use only the common parts among all types of European plugs so that it can be used everywhere in Europe. It does so by:

  • Remove the grounding pin (the most uncommon part)

  • Use the smaller 4.0mm pin size

As a result, WA-9C can be used in Italy, but with no grounding. Similarly, WA-9C can be used in Germany, but with no grounding and with a slightly loose connection (pin size is 4.0mm, not the Schuko 4.8mm). Note that due to the unique design of the UK outlet, however, WA-9C can NOT be used in UK.

 

WA-10L        South Africa uses both WA-10 and WA-10L. Our customers have told us that WA-10L is now more popularly used in South African.

 

WA-11          The flat Switzerland plug adapter for its non-recessed outlet.  WA-11 can not be used with its recessed outlet (too short).

WA-11A       The inlay Switzerland plug adapter for its recessed outlet.  WA-11A can be used with its non-recessed outlet, but with  slightly loose connection (smaller surface contact).
 

WA-12          The flat Italy plug adapter for its non-recessed outlet.  WA-11 can not be used with its recessed outlet (too short).

WA-12A       The inlay Italy plug adapter for its recessed outlet.  WA-11A can be used with its non-recessed outlet, but with slightly    loose connection (smaller surface contact).
 

WA-14          The Israel plug adapter with round pins. This is the new standards.

WA-15          The Israel plug adapter with flat pins. This is the old standards - still in use in many old buildings.
The latest and newest socket is a little "recessed" (only a few mm) and thus requires a small inlay to make connection.   We do have plans to design and produce a new model
WA-14N to solve this new problem.  Until then, WA-9C is your best choice to connect with this new socket.  On the other hand, only a small number of them are in used today.
 

WA-16           The old style of grounded Australia/New Zealand/China plug adapter.

WA-16N        The new plug adapter required by Australia - WA-16A is exactly identical with WA-16 except its two power blades are "insulated" (half way covered by plastic) - as an extra safety protection to prevent accidental electrical shock, a design following the European standards.  Note that WA-16N can be used wherever WA-16 is used.

News Update: The Australia government is now enforcing this new standards!

 

WA-17           Ungrounded version of WA-16.

WA-17N        Ungrounded version of WA-16N.  Note that WA-17N can be used wherever WA-17 is used.

News Update: The Australia government is now enforcing this new standards!

WA-20          The latest and newest socket is a little "recessed" (only a few mm) and thus requires a small inlay to make connection.   We do have plans to design and produce a new model WA-20N to solve this new problem.  Until then, WA-9C is your best choice to connect with this new socket.  On the other hand, only a small number of them are in used today.
