Reminder that USA sockets are the most well-designed of the worlds' electrical systems, when properly installed. Lazy electricians are the source of most problems relating to our plugs.
In america I heard that for some large appliances they have to use a cord with 2 plugs because each only supplies 110V hahahaha, while each of our single plugs gives superior 220V
Its amazing that they even have big appliances at all, it must be inefficient to use such low volts no?
>can't use an electric kettle
I use electric kettles all the time. Are you referring to the voltage difference? It means the difference of less than 2 minutes for a typical amount of water.
And I thought Americans were impulsive.
American here. We use gas to boil water for this reason, and also because it tastes better. When I visited the UK everyone had electric kettles and they boiled in like 20 seconds, which is amazing. But the water tasted like plastic.
Anyway since "power" = volts x current, 230v systems can deliver twice the "power" to a device as our system but it doesn't really matter that much or have any practical applications.
Different countries want to prove that their electrical system is the best, and if they can't they just say its tradition and a facet of their unique identity so it can't be changed to a better one.
>Try to pull Shucko plug out of wall by grasping cord

Icht bein master race plug
>Also, the US socket is sad.
Now you know why Danes are the happiest people.
I have to say that the danish socket is adorable, its definitely the cutest looking one.
>American here. We use gas to boil water for this reason, and also because it tastes better. When I visited the UK everyone had electric kettles and they boiled in like 20 seconds, which is amazing. But the water tasted like plastic.
>implying the taste is any different
>implying you done a double blind test
>USA sockets are the most well-designed of the worlds' electrical systems
But that's objectively false. British plugs are the best.
Listen to this guy telling you why they're the best: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEfP1OKKz_Q
And here's an article on CNET where they say how "the American plug is a weedy little implement", and that "if Chuck Norris was a plug, he'd be the sturdy, kick-arse British plug": http://www.cnet.com/uk/news/plug-versus-plug/
Switzerland has the most compact solution.
Germans has the most secure solution.
Denmark has the most aesthetically solution and the most compatible solution.
I value freedom over security so Denmark plugs win...
American plug can never be considered good when they insist on 110V
>>Try to pull Shucko plug out of wall by grasping cord
It's retarded to do that, it's not what cords are made for.
>the wire comes out of the plug itself before it would come out of the wall and the frayed ends electrocute you
1,If it comes out of the plug then it can't electrocute you since the socket provides the power.
2, This never ever happened. You probably have never seen how a plug is wired internally and how the mechanical stress caused by the cord is affects the plug.
I can only imagine this can only happen with some very cheap (and probably non-standard) plugs.
It is more common that the socket comes out of the wall if the electrician made a shit job securing it.
>You probably have never seen how a plug is wired internally
This: see pic.
If we're talking about safety the UK plug wins hands down
the taste would be more about the kettle than the way it was heated. Unless you heat it over a campfire it is not going to taste all different.
as you said, 230v systems allow a lower current for the same power so that makes 230v a lot safer.
>not everyone will even know how to replace said fuses if they ever go out
Are Americans really THIS dumb? Changing a fuse if elementary. They teach this shit in kindergarten
Do you even ohms law? 100W 230V light bulb plugged into 115V would only deliver 25W
But you can boil water using a inductive heating device, powered by 400V. It is common to have 400V installations for kitchen in eu.
>being this retarded
Americans always post these bait threads.
Everyone knows the UK plug is the most superior plug in the world.
- Safe, no housefires here boss.
- Strong, like odins cock
- Durable, you couldn't bend them even if you wanted to.
- Destroyer of careless feet
- Can be used as a mace in emergencies
- Superior voltage
- Did I mention they never break?
- Highest safety standards in the world
Hands down the best. Americlaps and Eurofaggots make it rain with jealousy.
>- Destroyer of careless feet
this is a benefit how, I remember the first time I visited the UK and stepped on one of those plugs... its much worse than stepping on a lego even like scattering spikes on the floor
I think that eurofriend misunderstood how Americans have a 240V outlet, where it IS actually made up of two 120V phases, the mains line provides 3 phases to the house:
1x 120V for normal power
2x 120V for 240V power outlets
its really weird how American electricity system works, someone had a picture explaining it once
>gas-boiled tastes better
Water should taste the same no matter if it's boiled or not. What the hell do they put in your water?
>electric kettle tasted like plastic
That's a case of a shit kettle.
Schuko is mustardrice
though Denmark looks kinda cute :D
>the German one requires a lot of effort to pull of from the socket
stop being a little girl
>hurr, I want faggots to pull my cables from the socket when they stumble over them
no, I want them to break their necks, while my appliances continue to work
Duh, it's so you can put the ends off of cords and use them as caltrops when making a quick get away, the UK plug hurts even when wearing shoes.
Though they are much less likely to break off in your foot, looking at you America.
British people are rarely stupid enough to flat-foot step on a plug and if you are, you fucking deserve the pain, look where you're going. it's how you learn now to bound around like a baby elephant.
The difference in taste most likely has more to do with how the water is treated than what it is cooked with.I live in America and the water can taste different from town to town.
Swiss plugs are fucking terrible, especially since you can shock yourself if you put it in half way and because no one ever uses swiss plugs… even swiss bought electronics don't use them. Fuck.
>not everyone will even know how to replace said fuses if they ever go out
We have flouride in our water, but it comes from a reservoir in wales. instead of becoming gay communists like the jews expected, we became bi-curious national-socialists
Your move, israel.
>the mains line provides 3 phases to the house:
This is not entirely correct. Most homes only have two of the three phases. Some people might have all three phases hooked up but that kind of depends on the area I think. Commercial buildings will almost always have three phase.
Round pins were a great step to what we have now, they are still safe compared to every other plug 50 years later. but BS-1363 is the diamond standard. the only possible step up is wireless.
This is bullshit, it doesn't matter what you boil the water with, it'll taste the same; though I've heard that starting from cold tap water will taste better than if you pour already hot water into the kettle, though I don't recall why, maybe oxygen content or something.
Also plenty of homes use electric stoves. Most homes have special outlets just for the oven.
Residential areas receive 2 phase power, commercial areas receive 3 phase power.
2 phase standard outlets are 120v, however you can use both lines to get 240 volts for shit like your washer and dryer
3 phase power gets only up to 208, but can also put out 120vfor standards
More volts is not more better
we have things called losses
>When inserted into the socket, the Schuko plug covers the socket cavity (1) and establishes protective-earth connection through the earth clips (2) before the line and neutral pins (3) establish contact, thereby preventing users from touching connected pins.
>A pair of non-conductive guiding notches (4) on the left and right side provides extra stability, enabling the safe use of large and heavy plugs (e.g. with built-in transformers or timers).
>More volts is not more better
Then why is power transmitted at 40,000,000 killavolts from the power station, and only stepped down when it gets to your house, if it isn't more better and with less losses?
>3 phase power gets only up to 208
That depends on the configuration of the transformers
Wye configuration = 120V/208V
Delta configuration = 240V
Very rarely and mainly on older installations you'll see delta with 120V/240V which is called "high leg delta"
So it's like here in Europe, we also have 3 phases for 400V and 32A sometimes up to 125A, we use them for stoves and strong machines like a circular saw.
You sure you're talking about being taught to wire a plug and not just the basics of how the plug works? When I said not any more, I meant not taught how to take it apart and replace the fuse. Are you talking about being taught the diagram of the plug and the wires inside of it so people can pass the GCSE and then promptly forget about it, or are you talking about actually being taught how to replace the fuse?
what this guy said, we want to prevent people on the line from putting their bullshit distortion on the main line, to that end we isolate with a transformer on the end of the line, not the beginning
"Too much work" according to most countries.
This god-tier standard is the latest attempt:
And the EU has not approved it and the countries that actually adopted it made a NATIONAL VARIANT or (in the case of South Africa) made it one of a dozen standards.
And then there is Switzerland which has the predecessor specification and they adopted safety features from IEC 60906-1 into legislation that applies to new buildings, but the pin sizes and spacing remain as they were - making it another variant...
>it doesn't matter what you boil the water with, it'll taste the same
Not entirely. Plastic boilers, especially new ones, can give off a plastic taste. Also, boilers turn off immediately when the water boils, while stove kettles don't. Boiling longer means more gas is dissolved, which makes the water taste fresher (running water has more gas than still, so evolution makes us favor it. that's also why we like carbonated drinks so much)
Literally the most retarded design. The reason why the Schuko has the ground pin on the socket is so the ground is connected before the neutral and the line. Second, because of this it is incompatible with the rest of the EU sockets. Third, the socket looks appealing to children as a toy, so the risk of injury is higher.
Third, Danes are not happiest people, but the most ignorant ones with one of the highest use of antidepressants.
>Author of a new book on Danes asks if the secret to Danish happiness the ability to ignore unpalatable truths
>The latest available five year data indicate that the use of antidepressants varies markedly from just 4.02 DDD/1000 per day in Romania, 5.59 in Latvia and 6.03 in Bulgaria, to as much as 68.50 in Denmark, 70.09 in Sweden and 95.16 in Iceland. There was an average DDD/1000/per day of 40.01 across all countries.
But they are fucking isolated from the ground. If that adapter gets wet, fuse will break and that's it. Noone dies, noone gets hurt. Water near that plug will be the path of least resistance, not the one through their brains.
I remember learning about which bit of the plug is which and a bit about the safety features, but we definitely never wired a plug ourselves. Odd, whereabouts do you teach? I don't know if it would differ from region to region but I'm in Hertfordshire
> flat pins
USA's plugs suck mechanically and electrically.
I don't know how they happened, but it's either absence of science or a 100% compromise towards manufacturing technology from 1-2 centuries ago (flat pins were easier at a time) with no update since that time.
IEC 60906-1 and variants (including the swiss one) are the most intelligent household plugs.
Mechanically AND electrically.
It's the same syllabus everywhere in England, at least. Lessons are generally mandated, but, given a school's resources, you might not have had the plugs... You should have learnt how to wire a plug.
eurofag here brit plugs are horrible
>fuse in plug wow so progressive wow
we just have an electrical shield where every fuse is. Have your plug in a mess of cables deep behind your desk? Just stand up, open a door and check the fuse. Simple
>superiour 3 prong design! So amazing
many plugs dont even use the 3 prongs, since one of the prongs is plastic and it is just needed to open up other two.
Besides 3 prongs and cable on one side of he plug only means that you can have the plug one way. Ive had so many space and cabling problems because I cant face the plugs different way. Its literally fucking retarded.
Also many bathrooms have euro or us plug in them because bathroom appliances often use either of these.
UK plug worst plug. Just as retarded as uk bureorcacy or uk taps with one for cold and one for other.
UK people are literally retarded in many ways.
People actually boil shit in plastic? Do they want cancer that badly? Pretty sure plastics all leech chemicals when they get heated or cooled too much. Why would anyone want to boil water in anything but metal? Though I hear stone boiling creates a nice taste, it's way too much of a pain to be worth bothering with.
lol no its illegal to do any electrical work in uk unless you have electricans papers.
I just came from glorious mainland europe where I helped my brother wire ventilators and halogen lamps in his apartments.
> internal fuse
In every plug? No, that's stupid. IEC knows what they're doing.
Fuses (and the other safety features and monitoring equipment) belong on centralized, easy to maintain breaker boards that secure circuits rather than individual plugs.
It's cheaper and easier and just all around better... unless you're in a daisy-chain-entire-households-on-one-wire-due-to-wartime-shortages-somehow-continued-after-war installation like GB did it.
Then you NEED fuses and shit on the individual sockets, because you saved on the wiring...
All this love for my country's moe moe kyun plugs.
That said, the only other option I would consider would be the German design for that famously sturdy engineering.
Apparently we do, I've heard we have the highest consumption in Europe, even beating out Netherlands even though it's mostly legal there and illegal here. I wouldn't know though, I don't smoke at all.
>Fuses (and the other safety features and monitoring equipment) belong on centralized, easy to maintain breaker boards
So that when one appliance fails, the entire house is plunged into darkness.
I don't get it someone explain this to me.
The German Europlug (standardized in most European countries) is connect to a electric switchboard that in case of a surge turns off the power to all sockets and it is still backed up by 2 rows of fuses (as presented in the picture) before even being connected to the external grid ( ie: if the external fuse gets surged it burns out before even anything blows).
Now from what i'v seen in this thread i can presume 3 things.
Britfags have expensive house plugs that carry their own fuse so this means their house doesn't have any/or lacks decent eletrical countermesures agains surges(?)
Mericlap plugs are dangerous due to idiots who install them ( such a thing renders about 76% of housings in america due to the general retardation of the mericlaps eletrical engineers and tecnicians).
Plugs aren't standardized because :
A) countries have diferent infrastructures and don't want to get mixed with somone else's shitty apliances due to tax wars
B) It's too expensive to switch and it's quite unsafe to make the change due to the general public lacking the understanding how eletricity works.
uk plugs cause a fucking clusterfuck and they are horrible since the cable comes out of the side and you cant flip those around
so many times Ive had to spend extra money on an extension cable because the retarded design takes up way too much space.
If you could turn them around it would be different but no its retarded.
UK is literally not 1st world country by many standards. Cant even own guns because populase is too violent and stupid and allows filthy scots to have a word in their matters.
forgot the picture
>it's the european eletrical fuses that connect to the external power grid, correct me if i'm they still haven't changed them
Your socket is automatically shit if it doesn't fit a euro plug. At least pretend you are following a standard.
Also the Schuko is the best, everyone knows.
The whole circuit is a room or so.
And it should almost never trigger anyways. So having more compact plugs rather than paying for the safety features (not just a fuse, but power leakage detection, and all the stuff you can have) in every necessarily pretty bulky plug is a bigger concern.
We also have the option to use fused plugs and plugs with leakage current detection (the law does not care), but nobody picks that option unless they needed to retrofit security features into one plug that was hard to wire up with a third wire...
>B) It's too expensive to switch and it's quite unsafe to make the change due to the general public lacking the understanding how eletricity works.
I think this combined with
>countries have diferent infrastructures
which is what started all of this in the first place-
>Britfags have expensive house plugs that carry their own fuse so this means their house doesn't have any/or lacks decent eletrical countermesures agains surges(?)
We don't need countermeasures against surges because our infrastructure isn't falling apart like you Americans who dangle power cables from flimsy wooden pylons and wonder why entire towns have blackouts when the wind blows.
You can buy surge protectors on the plug if you are paranoid about it though
No. Half a room to two-three rooms, typically. At most. There is more than one normal circuit per apartment.
Plus the higher voltage three-phase kitchen appliances / ... one with fixed installations that only electricians are allowed to do.
And it happens very rarely. And when it does, all you have to do is unplug whatever failed, go to the breaker board and flip a switch...
Not an american not even close.
>We don't need countermeasures against surges because our infrastructure isn't falling apart like you Americans who dangle power cables from flimsy wooden pylons and wonder why entire towns have blackouts when the wind blows.
Acoording to this your grid is more unstable the a somali rebel with an ak on his hand.
As an American, this does embarrass me. Why the fuck aren't we running our electrical underground where it won't get taken out by fucking car accidents or storms? Not to mention, the whole grid is aging, inefficient trash. Like yeah, I get it, it costs money to dig tunnels, but come the fuck on, we're already spending shitloads replacing downed or failed equipment constantly! It would pay for itself after a while. And think of the jobs it would generate.
>Anyway since "power" = volts x current, 230v systems can deliver twice the "power" to a device as our system
volts^2/resistance = power
4 times the power, assuming the lines can handle the current
Would someone mind pointing me to an article or something that shows how US sockets are shit in comparison to other countries? I'm trying to convince somebody that they're shit (and this person is taking it as a personal attack and feels the need to defend the US's sockets and thinks I'm just being patriotic when I say other countries do it better), and I'd rather link them to a decent, reputable source rather than 4chan
If you can't even think of why they're shit why are you arguing that they are?
There are better sockets, but the US sockets are not shit.
If you want shit sockets look at Japan which is basically American without a ground or Russia.
Did you read the part where
>Last month National Grid confirmed that the spare capacity in the electricity network had fallen to 4.1% for this winter.
>The margin is expected to go even lower next year as EU rules force more old polluting power plants to switch off.
Any "minor" alteration in the grid could cause massive power loss.
I'v seen Engineers being lazy and fucking up whole installations due to "silly" simple things, so yeah lets include em.
This dumb bitch thinks she knows everything about electricity because her dad is an electrician and she lived with him briefly. I know enough about electricity to know that the US design is worse than some others, but I don't know enough about it to argue it with her (and she will just refuse to believe me until I back it up anyway)
Except for the non-standard, bulky and non-turnable design, its the best because of the expensive pointless fuses, and it will land with its pins up. By far.
Why is it good design again? How does it beat the Schuko?
The only real issue with US plugs is that many manufacturers skimp out on the metal used for the prongs. You could argue that they don't have extra bullshit like grounding on every appliance, switches on the socket, or fuses in every plug but those are just over the top safety features when it comes to every day use.
Most people don't write articles about things people don't have a realistic choice about anyways.
(It's not like you can install a better socket type in most countries, or get devices for it...)
You need to read in-depth spec sheets by the standards organization and plug manufacturers to see why the US plug is (say, mechanically) worse *beyond* it being flat and thus electrically rather silly.
Also, you guys know that the cross-section surface of the cable increases as you want to transfer more current on it. Otherwise it will heat up. It can even cause a fire. P=UI
The only thing increases with the increase of voltage is the insulator requirement. Certain air distance can be used for that as well. That makes transferring high voltages efficient.
Beh, apart from the grounding, this doesn't even need to exist.
Fuses should be like these and on DIN rails, in a central box.
I don't think GFCI and RCBO and stuff are mandatory in the USA yet, though? That's one thing that's bad over there, isn't it?
>which is used by the jews to turn your kids into gay communists
By the way, before some faggot complains: This is a demo/incomplete installation - I always think it's interesting to see a bit more of some internals.
When finished, it'll look something like this. Nice and clean.
Half our household installation is like that now, the other half (just fuses) is older than me, apart from the GCDI that was added later.
Modern is obviously clearly superior.
How can any plus be the "best"? Canada fag here and there's never been a moment where I thought "Damn I wish these plus were better." I've been to Nepal, Malaysia, Australia and Thailand and I never thought those plugs were inferior or superior in anyway. It is annoying to carry around adapters though.
Enjoy fighting over your pussy bitch power while I use some real manly socket for real men power.
Fuses are overcurrent protection.
However, installations also should have leakage detection, because you can electrocute yourself (or waste power in a power leak) at the kind of current a line supports.
The latter aren't something that is mandatory in many countries, because it's like... cold war "recent", and most don't like mandating these newfangled security features like ground wires and GCFI.
It never happened to me, and id rather have it pop off without damage to the cord than have it break some internal wire.
Yeah if you pull on a 90 degrees angle on the plug with all your force, but the more easy outcome is you warp the fucking socket out before you can even think of bending the plugs.
Really, use them before saying dumb shit. They are the smallest and they are good, all the others are retardedly big.
This reminded me of this shitty lamp i have. why do i still use this? this cant be safe. This lamp is ugly and shit.
No plug is safer or more durable than the no ground American.
also... why don't we use these as wall sockets?
Sad thing is the is only half of it. I'll redo it properly someday.
American here. Power lines are underground where I live.
The issues are that 1) It's expensive due to low population density compared to europe
2) Poor infrastructure planning decades prior
dat fractured english
'better' is a comparative that doesn't take 'more', the same is true for the equivalent in all romance-based languages: GOOD BETTER BEST. SIMPLE.
FEWER losses. FEW. FEWER FEWEST. Fewer trolls, fewer autists, fewer moments of fedora tipping. LESS shit.
Because you always do the less logical thing to do.
Per example you are still using the imperial system when even your own scientists recognized the superiority of the metric one.
You can drive 3.5 tons care before being legally able to drink alcohol is also another thing that will always puzzle me.
residential power in the us is different. You are really getting two leg single phase power to your home. This is because of how the distribution transformer works. Only industrial areas actually get three phase power because it requires extra distribution hardware.
Electric cars have battery voltages around 400V, so they always convert up no matter what. But for the same amperage, you get twice the power out of 220V, so it's preferable to wire a charger into that.
Do you americunts even have 540volts? How do you power heavy machines?
>mfw yuropoors can't even afford gas stoves to properly boil water
OSHA would have a word with you
>120+120 volts 240 does not make.120
(2 * 10^2) + (4 * 10^1) + (0 * 1^1)
200 + 40 + 0
I'm an american, and I have a 240v outlet in my house that I use for welding equipment. They're not installed in most places because they're not usually necessary, but our power grid does, in fact, support them.
It's actually just a 240V transformer with a center tap which is tied to ground.
Since we're talking about electricity, how do you know how much watts something uses in an hour? I know you get watts by multiplying amps and volts, but how would you measure kilowatt-hours? Let's say something uses 12v with 1.5 A making it 18w, would that be 18 watts per minute? Hour? EE freshman babby here by the way
It's actually not very easy to tell with most devices. The current rating is not how much current is being drawn that rating is just a maximum. The actually amount of current drawn depends on the device. Honestly the easiest way to do it would be to just get a watt meter.
Something like this:
>great tier (does the job well)
>acceptable tier (does the job well, but is unnecessarily unique)
>not ideal but does the job (works okay, but not as good as those above)
>literally retarded megastupid tier (like it says on the tin)
Japan gets its position because of their retarded power grid, and the variability in frequency they provide from their power sockets.

Microwaves are several times more efficient at heating water
using an electric kettle instead of the microwave is like making a better bow and arrow instead of switching to silenced firearms

Are you really telling me that putting electricity through transformers and magnetrons and beaming energy through the air where some of it gets absorbed by water is more efficient than directly converting it into heat and applying it to water?
You are a special kind of retarded.
No, they don't have transformers. They also turn 100% of the power used into heat.
Microwaves are only 64% or so efficient: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_oven#Heating_efficiency
not sure if anybody mentioned it but the power rating of the line depends on the wiring. Depending on material and size the wire can handle X Ampere current before it heats too much and the insolating material breaks.
So, since P = V * I, Imax is determined by the cable and for the same cable 'murrica can deliver half the power than europe, hence the double plug sometimes.
Remember older external HDDs that came with two usb ports because one wasn't enough to power the circuit? Same principle.
Also, 'murica has the potato prize for most retarded plug, but this was a bait thread anyway
Different guy here, I took my GCSEs in 2008 and I don't remember doing shit about plugs, The only thing I remember that's even slightly relevant is showing that connecting/breaking circuits can turn off a light. Then again, I missed half of Year 8 due to a broken leg. West Mids here
Turning electricity into heat is probably the easiest thing you can do. It is one thing we can do with perfect efficiency. A simple resistive heating element is quite good at this.
Normally in most systems where you are trying to consider efficiency heat is a byproduct that is undesirable because it is not the work you are trying to do (just like is mentioned in the microwave efficiency link I posted).
Almost 400 out of the 1100 watts you use in a normal microwave ends up as heat that is wasted and not used for cooking. The 1500 watt electric kettle I have turns all 1500 watts of electricity into heat.
>not making tea by placing distillation chamber over the stove, dumping water directly on the heating element, and tea bag in the receiving flask
hahahahaha what a fucking faggot
Depends on the exact model, some are nice and insulated and others are just plain glass or metal for the walls.
You still lose less heat to the outside environment by convection and radiation off a hot kettle then you do with a normally operating microwave.
What can your kettle make besides hot water?
My microwave can do so much more.
It takes a lot of joules to manufacture a superfluous kitchen appliance that is only kept around for the sake of backwards tradition.

Because using a specific tool for a job is faster and easier than using a general purpose one in its place.
In America you can drink water straight from the tap and not get worms and diarrhea. People don't use the tap for boiling water the tap gives hot water but it's not boiling hot so it's not really suitable for tea
Refer to the pic I posted before, you will keep pulling something out of your ass to say why they are bad and I can't be arsed anymore to dig up facts to refute you. I have better shit to do.
This is one of the most autistic posts I have seen on 4chan, good job.
"More better" is something typically said in jest because it sounds silly. You would know this if you tried talking to people.

Right, which is conduction...
The air then transfers the heat by convection, since that is a fluid, but that's outside the local system of the kettle.
Also, I notice that I wrote 'is' instead of 'isn't'.
A kettle isn't a fluid.
The water in the kettle is a fluid, as is the air around the kettle.
you fucking faggots will argue about anything
BTW OP, this is the wall outlet right side up. Please stop posting them upside down.
The USA has never used the imperial system of measures. We us US standard which is similar, but broke of from traditional english units before the Imperial system was codified in the early 1800s. This is why the US gallon is different than the Imperial gallon, the US ton is different than the Imperial ton, and until 1954 the US inch was very slightly different than the Imperial inch.
Also the USA has used the metric system back to the 1860s.
Being dual unit is nothing to be ashamed of. Your ignorance however is.
