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


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

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


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

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

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 chargers.
