Types of Powerpoints

Our General Purpose Outlets (GPOs) are Type 1, at 230 volts and have a maximum current rating of 10 amps in Australia. There’s a wide variety of these outlets available across multiple styles, colours, pricing and purposes. Not all power points are created equal, and some are better suited to the task at hand. These are the most common types found in Australian homes:

Double Power Point

A double power point is the standard, familiar electrical outlet with two side-by-side sockets and a switch for each. Again, there’s a near-endless number of styles to choose from, with options to suit the aesthetic of your home.

Older homes may suffer from each outlet being a single power point. This wastes much of their electrical potential and forces you to rely on double adaptors and multi-outlet power boards. Upgrading a single outlet to a double power point in key areas of the home is a no-brainer. The process is typically straightforward, with little-to-no necessary switchboard upgrades required.

Power Point with Extra Switch

The double power point receives an extra switch in the middle for activating other features such as a light or ceiling fan. This helps reduce the clutter of having a separate switch and power point close by.

Of course, a power point with an extra switch will only benefit an easy-to-reach area.

So, these options work well in kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, and garages. An electrician must rewire the connection to the light or ceiling fan so that it can be controlled by the additional switch on a power point.

USB Power Point

If your power points are fitted with USB outlets, you won’t need to fight partners and siblings for the phone’s wall charger connection. Select models of double power points are equipped with two USB connections for charging phones and tablets with ease.

If you are worried about USBs becoming outdated, the latest model power points are also fitted with USB Type-C ports, which are the slimmer charging ports becoming more important as the standard for new technologies.

Smart Powerpoint

Smart powerpoints are a great way to connect and expand the smart home without having to equip a whole bunch of new technologies.

Have a professional fit your smart power point, and you can activate appliances from a smartphone. This saves you from bending over and getting out of bed. Plus, there’s the safety benefits. Have you left the iron on? Turn it off remotely from your phone. How good!

Outdoor Power Point

An outdoor power point looks distinct when compared to its indoor counterpart. An outdoor power point will typically have the outlets angled downwards or concealed from the rain, along with an additional weather and dustproof rating. In Australia, they must have a minimum IP67 rating to keep appliances and the house protected from faults.

Equip these around the entertainment area or shed to make your time outdoors much more secure and convenient.

FAQs – All You Need to Know About Powerpoints

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors reveals the answers to your questions about powerpoints.

Electricians recommend replacing power points every 20 years and suggest rewiring to the same timeframe. However, natural wear and tear, rodents and shoddy DIY work can all affect these systems and increase the risk of electrical shocks and even a fire.

If your power point shows cracks or isn’t working correctly, you should have it tested, repaired, or replaced ASAP, regardless of its age.

Yes – a damaged electrical outlet can cause a fire. Sparks could catch internal insulation or cause the plug and appliance to burn and melt. This is a greater risk for older homes and those without safety switches in the meter box. So, more great reasons to consider upgrading your electrical systems.

A 3 phase power supply is a type of electrical outlet that can transmit three times the power of a standard residential power point. The 3 phase is common to commercial and industrial facilities.

Most homes don’t require 3 phase, but it will always depend on the requirements of electrical appliances around the home. Speak to an electrician about your electrical needs for more information.

Definitely! Our trained electricians can provide the outlet and add any necessary data cabling so you can update your home to be more versatile with USB wall outlets.
