Overview of the most important 2- and 3-pole devices

Since the boundary between 2- and 3-pole devices is relatively blurred, it is not really possible to make a 100% division between devices.

Normally, however, devices which do not use much power, in other words below 500 watts, are 2-pole:

  • electric toothbrushes
  • razors
  • charging stations for USB-capable devices like mobile phones, iPods and iPads, etc
  • coffee-makers
  • navigation devices
  • video cameras

More powerful devices (above 500 watts) normally are 3-pole:

  • laptops
  • PCs
  • hairdryers
  • hair straighteners
  • irons
  • vacuum cleaners
  • televisions
  • power drills
  • kettles
