Plug vs. Plug

November 5th, 2009

A fun piece over on Crave on CNET UK looking at the merits (merits which include things such as looking like a smiley face) of power plugs and plug sockets of the world.

05-11-2009 10-31-59Sure, it's a fun piece, but it does help to hammer two things home to people:

  • The voltage that you get your power at in your country might not be the same as the voltage in another country.
  • Plugs and sockets vary wildly from country to country.

Oh,and finally, no one who's ever stepped bare-foot on a UK plug (which is almost designed to lay with the metal prongs in the upright, also known as laughing, position) would give the thing 10 out of 10!
