Automan,

All the sockets in Belgium are type E. (so with an earth pin).
All of the plugs are combined type E+F, so you can put them in either a type E or type F socket.
(unless it is a device that does not need an earth connection, then it would be a type C plug)

I guess the preference for the type E+F plug is kind of universal throughout Europe, as that allows a manufacturer to just supply 1 universal plug that fits the socket of all European countries (with the exception of the UK and Switserland and....)

I just wish that CurrentCost had also chosen a more 'universal' approach.
But hey, who knows one day they might come out with a type E IAM of a E+F IAM

Just that you know...

Indeed, it seems the EU socket is not very standard :(
