                there are two 120V AC lines that come to each house. these lines are 180 degrees out of phase from one another. what this means for you, peabrain euroscrote, is that small appliances can use a single 120V line, while heavy duty appliances use both which ends up being 240V due to the phase difference.

                    Wouldn’t the tools be rated for the higher voltage, but use less current? P=IV, so doubling the voltage would double the power if the tools drew the same amperage. That would be cool for some power tools, but for others it would be too much for the job.

                      Your microwave probably has the dish spin or has a fan in it or something that disturbs the water.
                      You can get exploding water if you microwave still water until it reaches a heated superposition where the temperature is above the boiling point but the water itself isn’t boiling.
                      Then when you disturb the water it suddenly starts boiling violently… which is why it explodes.
                      It’s like those crystallizing vids where you have a liquid and then they throw a tiny crystal in and then suddenly the entire liquid turns to crystal.

                    Only distilled or if you boil it for like 5 minutes and introduce a fork or something cold when you take it out. So yeah, not happening when it boils in like 30s or so.

          It has zero benefits over 240V and upgrading is super easy.

            220v at 13 amps isn’t enough to power most large appliances like stoves and dryers. Our 220v outlets typically supply 60 amps.

              A stove, yes that takes more than 13amps, in the uk stoves are hard wired on a separate circuit.

              But a dryer, what the fuck kind of dryer do you have that takes more than 13 amps, does "dry" mean to you "render to ash"?

          Poland here. We use Type E also known as French one or type C
          – round shape
          – ground bolt coming from socket, not plug
          – so not only it’s polarized, but you simply cannot force to insert plug in any retarted way

          It will take at least decade or two to get rid of USB A to USB C cabling.
          Just look how long it took to get rid of RS-232 (COM ports) to be fully replaced by USB. Fortunately LPT managed to disappear quicker.

        Type C is a good companion for anything that doesn’t need ground.
        Fits E, F, J, K and N and is more compact so extension cables can snug in a few extra sockets without increasing size.

      First get the world to adopt a common power grid, then we can talk about common outlets.

          Basically every country except for the uk uses radial circuits. The uk also used radial circuits before ww2, ring circuits were mandated after the war to use less wire.

          To my understanding, there basically to ways to wire a building radial and ring.
          On radial, each section of a building, usually each room, has it’s own pair of wires connected to the breaker switch box.
          On ring the whole building is on a single huge ass parallel circuit.

          There are a 4 problems with that:
          1) The installation is fragile. One broken wire or short circuit will cut power for the whole building.
          2) The wires will have to handle more current creating more heat and more noise.
          3) The noise will propagate to the whole building (only really a problem if you use precision analog electronics though)
          4) It’s harder to expand/modify.

      Type L is all you need in a standard home. Image is wrong, it’s not installed sideways, ever. Sure, lack of obvious polarization is not perfect, but it’s not a big deal 98% of the time.

      1) it’s not like you walk into your neighbors house and now can’t use their wall plug, you have to travel
      2) each of those is also specific to certain countries electrical systems and ensures that devices not rated for the voltage/amperage aren’t used

      USB type-C like everyone else mentioned especially as everything becomes battery powered and graphene battery tech or similar allows you to recharge 0 to 80 in 5 minutes. As battery wh/kg keeps going up even microwaves will become battery powered, the USB connection will basically only serve to keep the battery topped off.
