ITT: Post power points from your country.
This is the Australian power point configuration, with the earth on the bottom and active and neutral on the left and right, respectively.
Aus power points also come in singles like this, but doubles are more common.
Its a Socket with Lightswitch over it.
think of a plug socket like ur gf, you dont want her turned on all the time, she will constantly be wet and asking for the D, what if ur busy, tired or want a sandwiche she just wants the D evuntually she will take another D and cheat, same with plug
so we switch it off so it doesnt go around being a socket whore
Italian fag here.
No switches but usually we use normal light switches linked to the plugs.
Also we use a lot of schukos cause Salò
Some of my relatives used to work for telecom back in the day and they usually referred to them as active and neutral. I'm not really clear on why, and perhaps things have changed or their expression wasn't common.
Israel easily. Wtf is up with that?
EU is so close to master race, but their adapters need to be gigantic because they're not flush with the wall. Reversible plugs are GOAT
Our Aus/NZ/China ones are surprisingly shit. I often find multiboards that have plugs that don't work properly any more, get blocked on the other side somehow or only work if you carefully place the plug in. Fuck these dumb shits.
American electrician here, you can get receptacles with switches, just not as common, we typically use appliances with switches and separate wall switches for lighting.
not japanese but here
this type is pretty common in SEA i think
reason why aus GPO's have switches it thanks to aus having the highest safety standards in the world.
Been out of the trade for ten years & last i knew it was active, neutral, earth & switch wire
Neat video. I think there are shuttered options in Oz, but they aren't required or standard. They definitely have long earth pins, and I think the earth is on the bottom to keep it connected if something pushes on it from about. Not really clear about that last bit, but I recall something about it's design being a safety feature in itself.
This will haunt my nightmares.. The fact travellers won't be wary of 110v/240v/other
My Oneplus Two charger judges noone.
they usually dont unless your plug has one prong thats larger
you could plug it upside down
my prongs are both equally small so they fit either way. some who buy plugs with different sized prongs usually shave the larger one
my country has 2 variants which would be both slots equal or one slot larger than the other so they basically shave the prongs or remove the circle prong(i have no idea what its called) like this
as an Israeli i can tell you it's upside down and i don't know why, here is how it should look like
Yep Still 110v. But most of my outlets have surge protection fuses built into them
He's right you know?
it doesn't matter as long as the ground is always the ground
The US has multiple circuits in a house. Each room is usually it's own circuit. Kitchens are usually 3 or more circuits. Each circuit can be a different voltage and amp load. Most rooms are wired at 15 amps, bathrooms and kitchens at 20 amps, large appliances at 20-40 amps.
kek. My old man was working on an army base BACK IN THA DAY and there was fucking mad shit going on. Different sheds at different frequencies, 440V shit, 110V, specifically 220, 230, 240 and 250V shit, everything in steel conduits inside concrete slabs, testing would have been a fighting mission and a half.
huh. in aus, it's all 240V, with lights wired together, power wired together, and designated circuits (AC, Hot water, Oven ect). power is normally 16-20amp depending on the sparky, and lights are usually 10
....oh yeah. and this was right when metric was being adapted. There was one poor bastard cutting the lengths for everyone and about 7 guys throwing numbers at him with no fucking units....
Ameritard here, why are most of these single outlets? does everywhere else use power strips for everything?
The main line into the house is 240 volt and 150, 200, 250 amps depending on the size of house. From the breaker box circuits are divided out. Most are 15-20 amps. 15 is very common since the smaller gauge wire is cheaper.
Can confirm Czech Republic uses power strips more than niggers use crack. Everyone I know here has like 5 plugs in their whole apartment, each with a massive power strip attached.
fuck u made me lafft....fellow aus fag sparky here & said it was earth stake above your post
grounding rod is just silly....now earth stake is fucking awesome...lol
No faggot. The thread clearly states PowerPoint. Stop being so autistic.
yeah as soon as i read "Gauge" I zoned out. We use
cross sectional area of the cable for sizes. i would imagin 14 gauge would be about 1.5mm, 12 gauge is about 2.5mm and 10 gauge is about 6mm
getting back to that infographic...
>30 amp is 10 gauge
assuming that's about the same size as 32 amp cable in aus, that is FUCKING THICK for a solid core cable...
oh you'd be referring to the consumer mains
& you'd be referring to a consumer mains & sub mains. sub board or panel as u call it has sub mains running to it so why wouldn't just call them sub mains....lol
You live in a favela? Also; bololo haha! haha bolololololo!!
They're called power outlets/outlets in Canada and Uhmurka (who cares about uhmurikunts? just had to throw them in or they'd feel left out). PowerPoint is this >>675629511. Aussies are literally retarded.
Do ausfags actually cerebrate/take part in Easter? What's the main religion in the land of oz? I thought you faggots just worshipped kangaroos and koalas.
Italy looks like a death trap.... What the fuck is that.
Aus and china have the safest ones. Slits not holes. Angled, only goes in one way. And has switches.
Seriously who the fuck wouldnt want switches?
What if an appliance doesnt have a switch on it?
Why the fuck would you want to unplug it everytime you were done.
in general, there are voltage drops whenever you plug in devices (slightly or huge)
so in general, yes, we try to unify. but if its 220VAC or 230VAC doesnt matter "that much", because sometimes there are voltage drops of 10V in a 230VAC line
eh. It's a christian/catholic basis with indians/chinese fucking everywhere in major cities. Easter is just a 4 day weekend with hot-crossed buns (FROM FUKKEN BAKERS DELIGHT CUNT) and hiding chocolate in your back yard for the kiddies to find. Xmas is where you go to your richest relatives house en force and eat all the things. Wouldn't have it any other way mate.
>thx he says
>well ur wellcum i says
I fucking hate uhmurikunts bro, and there ain't no shortage of those faggots on here. Shout out to all my milk bag bros!
I don't think many are actually religious but even like muslims that I know celebrate easter, halloween, and christmas. just a cultural thing that's not really related to Christianity any more.

Welp, that's exactly like how it is in Canadian land, bro. I could get along alright in Oz I think. Except everything is poisonous. I dono about that.
simply switchboard pal
Sydney on construction sites...good money back in those days when site allowance, travel, fares, height allowance & danger money was included.
yeah the christian plebs celebrate the resurrection of a carpenter...lol
>resurrection of a carpenter
Hey Zeus was a fucking carpenter now? Stfu.
I've lived in Auslandia for 13 years, in Queensland and have since become a shitizen (original kiwifag).
I've never seen a snake, a poisonous spider, or anything deadly (at least wildlife related).
Also, we prefer Canadians to Americans, you fit in better for some reason.
>a lethal voltage
>doesn't realize it's the amps that kill, not the voltage
>doesn't realize you can get shocked by 10'000+ volts and live
>doesn't realize it's 5+ amps that will stop your heart
>probably an uhmurikunt
I live an area with a lot of snake sightings in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Worst part too it's an estate. But youd have to be dumb as fuck to get bitten. Like really fucking dumb. If you see them alot you are probably less likely to be hurt. You'll grow up knowing what do. So generally most aussies would be calm around snakes. Its the spiders that are fuckers. But this is heavily dependent on you location and how tidy you are. Im in pretty messy but i see fuck all spiders let alone dangerous ones. But my parents place growing up had a heap of redbacks and white tails about, mainly outside tho. Thank fuck.
Yeah, faggot, Tdot! And fuck you, I'm a skilled tradesman in 2 trades. I could've went to Alberta to be a pipe fitter, but that sounds gay. As I said, you couldn't pay me to live in that shithole. I'm a butcher here, friend. What do you do now the price of oil is shit?
Probably bait but I have been hit with 240V many times in my Career (Aussie Sparkie) And it hurts but is fine. Wouldn't suggest it as it's no good for you but it's not fucked. 415V on the other hand is bad shit.
The food man, cracking dyed eggs. Yelling incoherent shit across the table to each other and then switching from english to greek mid sentence. I look forward to greek easter more than christmas.
>Also, we prefer Canadians to Americans, you fit in better for some reason
It's because americunts are shitty people, generally, and they smell funny (they're weird diet).
What >>675632423 said.
>you'll be welcome to our literally world-class stock of anti-venoms
That's good cause I'm not a nigger, an aboriginal asshat or an americunt!
I'll be damned.
Still won't kill you mate, unless maybe you stick your microcock in the outlet and ejaculate inside of it.
>Im in pretty messy but i see fuck all spiders let alone dangerous ones
Just cause you don't see em' doesn't mean they're not there. It's freezing cold here 9 months of the year and even I get bit from time to time.
For us in the USA it's "hot, neutral, ground". I think you're confused: if everything ran on DC, there'd be massive inefficiencies and power loss over transmission. Are you, by chance, the ghost of Thomas Edison?
haha almost 300 posts in a thread about power points don't see that every day on /b/, we should save one of these another time. it's 2:30 so Im gonna get some sleep so i can shitpost some more in the morning. sleep tight sparkie puppers.
was gonna post this myself, thank you for doing it for me.
