What are the new SA sockets?
By law, all new buildings have to be fitted with SANS 164-2 sockets. These sockets can also include the old three-pin plugs, but they must include the new SANS 164-2 plugs too, and may have switches.
Why does South Africa use the 3-pin plug?
While European two-pin plugs can be used with the new system, South Africa is sticking to three pins. The third pin is an earth pin designed to protect the users from electric shock, Isaac Malapela, business specialist at National Regulator for Compulsory Specification, told Business Insider SA.
