1. Brief introduction of Type A Plug

Type A Plug, also known as NEMA 1-15, is an ungrounded plug with 2 flat parallel pins. Invented by Harvey Hubbell II in 1904, this plug is generally polarized and can only be inserted one way because the 2 blades don’t have the same width, which is suit for type A or B socket.

Type A Plug is mostly used in North and Central America, Japanese Although the American and Japanese plug looks the same, the neutral prong on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug, the 2 prongs have the same size. Therefore, Japanese plug can be used in the United States.
