Information on The Type H Electrical Outlet

The Type H, or Israeli 16 A/250 V unearthed, plug is incompatible with other sockets. It is rated 16 A but the thin flat pins often caused the plug to overheat when connecting larger appliances. In 1989, the plug was revised from using flat pins to 4 mm round pins. Sockets made since 1989 accept both the old and new plugs, and also Type C plugs. Today, the older Type H sockets that only accept the standard Type H plugs are very rare in Israel.
