    Power outlets in new superdorms

    Advertisements



    I was just curious as to where the 110v and 220v outlets were in the superdorms. I couldn't remember if there were 110v outlets in the kitchenette or bathroom (I visted the campus earlier this summer). Should transformers be brought or bought? Any info would be most appreciated. I thank ya.

    There are both 110V and 220V outlets in the superdorms. But I don't remember if there are outlets in the bathroom or kitchen.

    No outlet in the bathroom, no outlet in the kitchen. You only get one outlet, the one under your desk & your roommate has theirs.

    adapter

    Nope. It's a 110V outlet and you use it like the one @ home in the states. Since you often need to plug in more than one thing at a time, do bring along a power strip.

    Prongs

    Can anyone xplain the type of prong used in the dorms for the 110V 60Hz plug?

    Is it a polarized 2 prong plug.

    or is there also a ground pin?

    plugs

    They are grounded... the top example in your illustration. And its not 60Hz... it's 110V/50Hz.
