Power Adapters for Every Device
For the oft traveled passenger, an essential component for every trip is the power adapter. Drawing a
similarity to the infamous quote, one should never leave home without it. Due to each nation's need
to demonstrate its power inflections via shapes and numbers of pins, plugs and points, this
component thus becomes an essential item in one's carry-on case.
In this current age of increasing mobility, one is presented with the opportunity to work,
communicate and be entertained within the confines of one's laptop computer or gadget of choice.
For the go-getter who always scans the air space to find a wireless network to connect to, power is
next on his mind as the battery bars on his device flash a warning message. Passengers in airport
terminals are contented to connect to wireless networks and wired power sockets. Upon shift of
locale into the airplane, some may reluctantly shut down their devices as though parting is such
sweet sorrow from a dear friend.
To cater to passengers' need to continue with their computer activity, some airline companies equip
their fleet of airplanes with suitable power adapters. These forms of in-seat power source are not
the same as plugging one's power socket into the nearest wall point. Depending on airlines, some
provide power points for alternating current which comply by the nation's specifications. Usually
this is the most convenient as they work with standard connectors and do not require a change in
voltage supply. Other forms may use a port similar to cigarette lighters in cars.
There is also another commonly seen port in airplanes and require an additional adapter to connect
to the cigarette-type adapter. Since most power ports in airplanes provide a relatively low voltage, a
suitable adapter is normally required to power a computer of higher capacity. More often than not,
airlines only allow passengers to utilize their in-seat power source for actual work and not to charge
By having an adapter which can connect to multiple sources and devices, this should resolve one's
dilemma in having to cart a bagful of accessories.
