Title: Power Plug Adapters: Your Perfect Travelling Companions!

Power Plug Adapters Your Perfect Travelling
Companions! Machines and Electricity are among
the greatest inventions of human history. Today,
we live with new species of electronics and rely
heavily on the gadgets. Similarly, gadgets also
depend on the energy sources. They require
power from external sources to work in a
seamless manner. The following example will cast
light on this aspect When our smartphone
or laptop pings or vibrates it
displays a notification- Low battery,
please connect to a charger- We
immediately realize that the gadget is energy
deprived. We attach it to a cable, a power cable
cord and connect one of its ends to the device
and the other to the wall.
We use power plug adapters to make these
connections. Power plug adapters are the tools,
which form an essential part of the circuit that
lets us charge the battery. It has other common
names like plug packs, domestic mains adapter,
plug-in adapter, wall wart, power brick, and
line power adapter.
Travel Power Plug Adapters These days, keeping
the gadgets charged up becomes a necessity while
travelling. If you are going to nearby town
or state, normal adapters and chargers
remain very useful. However, if you are
going abroad, you should know the
difference of voltage and outlets. When you
travel abroad, you will face the need of a
different type of power plug adapter. In many
cases, travelers need an adapter to fit the plug
into a different shaped outlet, as well as
a voltage converter so you do not fry your
electronics. The voltage requirement depends on
the device and country. It usually has a clear
print on the item. Thus, it totally depends on
the place you are traveling before you choose
a type of power plug adapter. After
knowing what you are plugging in, you may
need a single adapter, several, or a universal
adapter with different types. There are various
types of travel adapters available in the market.
Few of which are compatible in more than 150
countries. They come in a zip bag, which make
it easier for travel purposes. It denotes
the type of adapter and along with that,
it also mentions the countries in which, this
power plug adapter is in use. Travelers
can easily choose one of them in accordance
of their needs.
The appliances, which are battery backed
and chargeable, use Power Plug Adapters. They
are also in use with devices having no
power source when plugged in the wall
socket. The types of power cables available
in the market are Universal Power
Adapters They are aftermarket purchases and are
costlier than AC or DC power plug adapters. You
should opt for the Universal Power
Adapters to handle all types of charging
conditions effectively. Universal chargers use
various types of interchangeable tips and pins.
These tips and pins are like 4 way X connectors
and six-way star connectors, also known as spider
connectors. The universal chargers provide
additional functionality across different
voltages and sizes. It enables the universal
charger to function virtually in all the possible
charging environments. AC Power Adapters These
are the adapters, which generally come along
with your laptop purchase. The main
electrical supply is of alternating nature
and the battery backed laptop requires direct
supply of current. We plug one of the units of
the adapter into the wall socket.
The adapter consists of another unit coupled
in the circuit, which is a step-down
transformer. It rectifies the alternating
current supplied by the wall outlet to direct
current power on which the device functions. The
third and the final unit of the AC power plug
adapter, connects the transformer with the
device. This completes the circuit. DC Power
Adapters These are generally aftermarket
purchases even though few laptop manufacturers
do provide these adapters with the
purchase. Most of the other cables, which
charge the appliances from a source of
direct current, do not require the
need of conversion from AC to DC
adapters. They are the simple adapters, which we
find in the car power plugs and batteries. These
adapters can charge batteries without the need of
an external power source. Apart from these power
cable types, the buyers ought to know various
other specifics about the charging cables such as
the voltage and power output. As different
countries have varying voltages and plug
socket designs, you should know the type of
power plug adapter you may need while traveling.
At times, you need to charge your power plugs
with various connectors and make them universal
