Most electrical outlets in the Philippines are non-grounded two-pronged outlets of either type A (North-American standard) or type C (European style). Power outlets rarely accept both types of plugs. If you have a US three-pin plug (type B), you will need an adapter to plug in to non-polarized, two-pin outlets.
Is UK plug same as Philippines?
In the Philippines the standard voltage is 220 V and the frequency is 60 Hz. You can use your electric appliances in the Philippines, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220 – 240 V (as is in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa).
What plug adapter do I need for Philippines?
For the Philippines there are three associated plug types, A, B and C. Plug type A has two flat parallel pins, plug type B has two flat parallel pins and a grounding pin and type C has two round pins. The Philippines operates on a 220V supply voltage and 60Hz.

What happens if you plug a 220V into 110v?
Plugging a 220v device into a 110v outlet is not recommended. If you did, it’s highly likely that you’ll damage or destroy the appliance. If your device has no motor, then it’ll perform poorly, running on half the needed energy. If the device does have a motor, then the lower voltage can damage it.
