The electric power supply is 110 volts AC, with a frequency of 60 hertz.
Power outlets use a plug design that is primarily standard within the US, hence many visitors
from outside the US will need to purchase a plug converter. The majority of battery chargers for
mobile phones and laptops will accept a wide range of input voltages, hence a voltage converter
will probably not be needed.

overseas bank cards and credit cards are accepted for most other currencies. Two major banks
are located within easy walking distance.
