Who doesn’t love traveling? Are you purchasing every daily needed electrical product every time you visit different countries? Is the Converter or adapter not working? Are you frustrated with the wrong information about the plug outlets and voltages?
Common Voltages around the Globe
When talking about voltages and electricity frequencies, you need to know that most of the countries of the world surround between the single voltage of 110-120v and dual voltage of 220-240v. Such as, North America has a voltage of 120v at 60 Hz where Europe provides 230v at 50 Hz. Any electric device has an information label where you can get to know about its voltage.
Common Electric Plug Outlets
Similar to the voltage, the electric plug outlet too matters! When you insert your device’s plug into a socket, it perfectly fits in your country’s socket. But the case may be different when you are visiting abroad. You should know that there is no international standard for plug outlets. There are 15 different types of electric plug outlets available at present. The US Department of Commerce International Trade Administration, ITA has assigned all of the plug outlets. For the ease of explaining, we are going to number the different plug outlets from A to onwards. These numbers are completely random.
Though these are easy to come and you can purchase any of the adapters to plug in your devices into the socket of another country but you may not find the same adapter that can input the plug of your country. So, before any visit, do a little homework and collect the adapter from your country.
