Is this a euro or usa plug?

In the back of the jeeps they both have a small inverter

I can't tell if it's an upside down USA or Euro one

Has anyone used it and know? DSC_0149.jpg

That looks Euro to me.
Doesn't look anything like mine. Mine is a very typical North American style plug-in

I have my cell phone plugged into it, with the cord routed up between the seats.
The Dash Cam is plugged into the "front" power port

For reference this is just Uk. Main land Europe uses a different type of outlet.

I've ordered a pack of euro adaptors. Will see if they fit once they turn up.

What do you think it is then?

After looking at this chart it looks more like the type G for the UK to me (upside down in picture)....Euros have the round pins. Perhaps this is a type of universal 220-240V receptacle.

Well it's not a typical euro plug. Could feel it didn't want to go all the way in probably due to no earth

Could it be the Aus type I? DSC_0150.jpg

No UK one much bigger. Tried this right at the beginning. Its definitely a 3 pin needed just unsure which one

My US truck has the type B in the chart so not likely one of ours. Too bad the owners manuals do not show more information as to what the inverter's output receptacles are.

I've looked at this and the Aus one. I make you right and for the sake of a few quid I'll give it a try

Need one for both the wife's and my Jeep

They are cheap. If they fit I can buy some better quality ones. Ideally I need to change the back plate but no idea where to get that tbh

Since the trucks were bought from a UK dealer they likely have seen this issue and know what to do. Perhaps time to question them?

It's not a UK plug, the picture makes it look similar but it's far smaller. I'll get a picture. No way will you get a UK plug in there
