Travel Adaptor for Denmark

There are multiple socket types used in Denmark (E / K). Type K is the most commonly found so a UK 3 pin to type K adaptor should allow you to connect your appliances in many cases. If you want to be sure though a better option may be to invest in a worldwide adaptor that is a single unit capable of connecting to multiple socket types.

Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK 3 pin plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply.

Voltage - The mains voltage in Denmark is 230 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

Frequency - The frequency in Denmark is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.

Special considerations - Type E was added from July 2008.[7] Type F was added from November 2011.[8] Type C wall sockets are prohibited in houses build after April 1975.[9] All new sockets must be childproof.[10] 400V three-phase power is very common; The plugs/sockets used are either IEC 60309-2, or the Danish IP20 - mostly know as "komfurstik" or "380V-stik". Type C plugs fit into Type K sockets, but the opposite is not true. Denmark"s connectors have standard pin diameter and spacing, but its outlets may have different housing depths which may interfere with some adaptors.
