What kind of power sockets are used in Turkey?
European two round pin sockets are widely used in Turkey as everywhere in continental Europe. Because outlets are built into the wall, not all two-pin adaptors will fit, especially if you’re switching from a huge British Standard three-pin grounded plug. Check to see if your adaptor is compatible with these inset plugs.
Most hotels include adaptors, although not all types of plugs are covered. Adaptors can also be obtained at Istanbul’s shops and market stalls. If you need to charge your phone again, USB plug chargers are frequently available at shops and markets.
Turkish Electric Plugs & Sockets
Turkey operates on 220 volts, 50 Hz, with round-prong European-style plugs that fit into recessed wall sockets /points.
Check your appliances before you leave to discover what you’ll need to plug in while in Turkey.
Many products with built-in power adapters (such as laptop computers and digital cameras) can be connected into either 110-120-volt or 220-240-volt sockets/points and will automatically adjust to the voltage, (however you’ll need a plug adaptor that fits into the recessed wall socket/point).
Most guests today have multiple electronic gadgets to charge in their hotel rooms, including cellphones, digital cameras, computers or tablets, and electric toothbrushes. If you bring a power strip, you’ll just need one plug adaptor to plug it into a Turkish outlet, and then you may put all of your non-Turkish devices onto it.
