In the United States electrical current is standardized around 120 Volts AC (VAC), at 50 Hertz in either the NEMA 1-15 (Ungrounded) or NEMA 5-15 (Grounded) formats. This standard is used in several other countries as well. However, confusion and problems can arise from the exact same plug format being used in other countries with vastly different power standards.
