The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parellel pins. Although the amrican and japanees plugs appear identical. The natural pin on the american plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the japnees plug both pin are the same size. As a result japnees plug can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pin on Type A & Type B Plugs have a hole near the the tip that fits into 'bumps' found on the contact wipers of some socket, so that the pin are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some socket have spiring-action blades that grip the sides of the pin, marking the hole obsolete.

The type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected.As with the type A plug,the amrican and japness version very slightly.
