					Many factors serve to emphasize the uniqueness of a country from its neighboring
nations. Perhaps one of the most apparent is the difference in the propagation and
utilization of electrical power. Since electricity is a force that is measured based on
voltage and frequency, one would think that a device which works in a certain region
would do the same when plugged into a power socket across the world. However, this
remains yet a challenge as, more often than not, the plug does not fit the socket. This
dilemma has stricken many a traveler and caught them unawares. Rather than risking
the chance of turning up unshaven for an important meeting, many lug along power
adapters in the hopes of matching the correct shape, size and pins to power up their
grooming appliances.
  Electrical power supply within a country or region is also very much like vanilla ice
cream. Although the assumption is that there is usually one standard flavor, there may
be variations according to geographical locations. One locale may demonstrate
tendencies to follow standards of a neighboring country as compared to its national
precepts. Other factors driving the varying numbers may be caused by changes in
order to comply by the coming together of nations to form regional unions.
Fortunately, power adapters are not required as changes normally present themselves
as variants in the levels of current, voltage and frequency. In the event these variants
are minimal, most appliances should still be able to tolerate and function within a
certain upward and downward percentage.
  In line with increasing statistics of travelers, the universal version of this adapter was
designed to alleviate all woes arising out of mismatched plugs to points. This became
a relief to many as having to bring the correct version was normally the bane of an
inexperienced tourist.
