Hello Skooter Blog readers. Hoje phallus on 3 Adapters / Converters Energy Australian standard for European (Australian to EU Power Converter (Black)) acquired na FocalPrice. About the purchase I've talked in the previous article, so today I will talk only about the product.
Those Adapters / Converters Energy Australian standard for European were purchased for a trip I made to Australia, where practically all taken using the Australian standard, also known as Type I, and the voltage range from 220V to 250V, em 50Hz. The tension is not a problem for equipment usually take, which are basically chargers: Cell, camera battery, laptop, of tablet, etc. they usually accept a wide voltage range and both 50Hz and 60Hz. But the plugs need the converter, and although some of the hotels provide free, you can not take chances and not run the risk of having to pay absurd amounts for one of these universal converters sold in airports, or even having to leave the local shops looking for adapters of an unknown city in an unknown country. So, as I have done on previous trips (Canada and USA, Spain and Portugal), adapters bought in advance by the prices quite inviting the Chinese.
The Adapters / Converters Energy Australian standard for European convertem as tomadas australianas para serem utilizadas por equipamentos com plugs no padrão Europeu (Type C), which is exactly equal to the new Brazilian standard when the earth pin is not present (what is the most common boots). Of course I also took other adapters to multiply outlets (you never know how many we find in a hotel room) and to link type plugs (U.S. standard), which is the case of a porter Minh camera (Canada gained no).
It is worth noting that the Australian standard is the same used in China, Argentina and some other countries, although there are differences in polarity. In Brazil this type of plug was also widely used in home appliances before the rise of the Brazilian standard. It is also common to find outlets with 220V plug in such regions where it uses 127V, perhaps to avoid incorrect connections and burning equipment, bizonhamente something that the new Brazilian standard “forgot”, 127V and 220V outlets leaving with exactly the same plug.
Anyway, taken until all type I disappear from Brazil after renovations, those Adapters / Converters Energy Australian standard for European ainda poderão ser bastante utilizado em terras brasileiras. I even took them out of my bag before my last trip (to Curitiba) sure we would not need them, only to get there and find an outlet type I right beside my bed. I paid for the stupidity of having to connect my laptop and cell phone into an outlet farther. And speaking of Curitiba, a bracket: when was the Afonso Pena International Airport in the famous city of Pinhais (até comentei com os Twitter followers), I thought I'd look for the IRS in there and give us a hug in appreciation tax for not taxing anything since my coming from China 2009, but I better not do it. 🙂
As for the quality of Adapters / Converters Energy Australian standard for European, left a little to be desired. Not every round plug that will fit easily in these adapters. And forcing one of them to fit (even at home, auditioning) broke up one of the adapters. My father did a repair on one of them, reinforced with electrical tape and was better than when you came, then ended up being useful anyway. And internally are only two metal parts and no wires, it must withstand high currents. The pins returned by means scorched, because each connection in a socket 220 ~ 250V causes a nice spark, something that seems to be common with these tensions. As I live in a region where it uses 127V can not say with certainty, but readers who live in areas of 220V: Please confirm it in the comments. If I'm not mistaken, I also noticed that in making Fortaleza (which are all 220V).
By precaução, the trip also took some other models of adapters for Australian standard universal, including the grounding pin and appear to be slightly more robust, which were also purchased from FocalPrice, as can be seen in the following articles prior:
