What is the power plug type or adapter for Indonesia?

I am traveling to Jakarta this coming December and wondering what kind of power plug type does Indonesia use? Do I need a converter?
– Gerard

Indonesia uses the power plug type of 2-pin, voltage is 220 volts / 50Hz, similar to European countries. So depending where you are from, you may need a converter to a 2-pin head that looks like this:

Tips: Better to bring your own converter than to buy it here in Indonesia. But make sure it comes with a round head to be able to fit into the power points here.

Also not that power blackouts are not infrequent here in rural areas, especially where demands can be high.
