Adapters

What do the adapters in Israel look like? It's my understanding there are many different looking outlets depending on the age of the building. We will be all over Israel.

I used my standard two round prong European adapters and had no problem.

Lived in Tel Aviv for the past 2 yrs and all sockets I saw around the country were EU style. As previous reply said, the 2 round prongs which is called "type C."

If you are using a two-pronged plug, the same two prong adapters that work in "southern Europe" will work in Israel. Here is an example: https://www.amazon.com/Ceptics-Europe-Asia-Plug-Adapter/dp/B0084OPT8C/. Rick also sells these here: https://store.ricksteves.com/shop/p/european-power-adapter

If you need a three-pronged adapter, those are unique to Israel: https://www.amazon.com/Ceptics-Israel-Palestine-Travel-Adapter/dp/B01N7VKQ7Z

I'm not sure about "many" different types of outlets; my internet reading identified two, and the three prong plug adapter I linked will work in both (the reason it has round prongs, rather than flat "blades" which would only work in one outlet style). I only had two-pronged devices, and used the same adapters I use in Continental Europe with no problems. I don't remember what the outlets actually looked like.
