Which electrical plugs and voltages are used in China?

The People's Republic of China uses type A, G and I electrical plugs with a voltage of 220 V at 50 Hz.  However, both Chinese type A and I do not match American and Australian type A and I standards.  Chinese type A prongs, for one, are shorter and do not have holes near their ends.  Chinese type I plugs, in turn, do not have the same dimensions as those in Australia.  Officially, Chinese type A outlets are the standard even though type G outlets can also be found.  In all cases, however, the voltage and frequency of the current should be the same.
