  Indonesian Plug
by pangtidor

The electricity voltage in Indonesia is 220V 60Hz with two rounded prong plug (see the picture). Most of the receptacle will be provided for that kind of plug. You may find the adaptor for three squared prong plug in the supermarkets/shopping centers even in the provinces BUT IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO GET THE US PLUG TYPE (THE TWO SQUARED PRONG PLUG) ADAPTOR. Make sure you will bring the adaptor from your home country. Some international flights and a domestic flight (Garuda Indonesia) will sell the universal adaptor onboard in case you forget to bring it. The universal adaptor could be found in the business center of 3+ stars hotels. Check your appliances power too (hair dryer, chargers, or other electronic devices), especially if you are a backpacker or going to stay in a home stay/Indonesian relatives-friends houses. Some houses, especially in the villages will just have less than 1000W of electricity supply. Furthermore, in some areas there might be a schedule of the brown out due to the heavy rain, power crisis, or power source maintenance. Charge your electronic devices whenever you can once a day; do not wait until the battery is finished/low. Who knows the brown out will come and you will be out of supply.
