If you like to travel abroad, you may run into a very common problem should you bring electronics with you. There are different power outlets in America, England, the rest of Europe and the rest of the world outside of Europe. Standard American outlets are 110 volts and have a grounding slot.

If you are an American traveling in Europe, you won’t be able to get the plug into the outlet to begin with if it is a standard, three-pronged plug. If it is a two-pronged plug, the current will likely fry your device instantly. While converters are available online and in stores, it is wisest to simply check the hertz rating on the device’s label if you still have it. If it …

The technology that helped Buttercup regain mobility …

As with most things in this world, scientific progress tends to make our lives easier as time goes on. In the packing and shipping industry, the same holds true. Conventional injection molding was the—well—convention for quite some time.
