What fuses are used for plugs in countries other than the UK?

None! The UK is the only country in the world to protect its people with fused mains connectors. Every other country relies on the consumer unit (sometimes known as the ‘fuse box’) for protection.

As a result the UK has the safest electricity supply in the world.

For information about the plugs and voltages used throughout the world complete with images of each one visit our International Mains Voltages page. For information about mains wiring and UK plugs visit our Mains Wiring page.
