WhatPlugWhere.com solves the power outlet problem for international travelers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
WhatPlugWhere.com offers a comprehensive source of information about the world’s most common electrical outlets. Featuring names, photos, and voltage compatibility of plugs for any given country, Mobal Communications Inc. is offering avid travelers a simple way to sort through the confusing differences in foreign outlets, and keep their mobile devices running when abroad.
With at least twelve different types of electrical plugs used throughout the world, it can be difficult to know which one is going to do the job. To make matters worse, similarities between them have little to do with proximity. The plug that fits an outlet in London may be of no use in Rome, but perfectly suited for a trip to Hong Kong. Most modern conveniences rely on easy access to electricity and without it, a dream destination can turn into a nightmare.
WhatPlugWhere.com is a comprehensive source of outlet information for the world’s most used electrical plugs. The site invites users to type in their future destination and gives them instant access to photos of plugs and their corresponding outlets, as well as voltage information to gauge device compatibility. In seconds, travelers can find out exactly what they need to keep their mobile devices running when abroad.
After establishing themselves as the nation’s leading international cell phone carrier, the innovative team at Mobal Communications Inc. decided to start solving other common problems faced by globetrotters. “We have a large community of travelers that regularly interact with our monthly travel newsletter,” said Mobal Communications Inc. CMO Jared Owen. “One of the things our customers struggled with was understanding what power outlets were used in the country they were traveling to.”
A simple problem, followed by an equally simple solution. “We created this tool so that anyone traveling to a foreign country can easily find out what power adaptors, if any, they require,” he concluded.
Over 50% of travelers use mobile devices to inquire about travel related information, and over 70% use them to check in for flights and hotel reservations. Similarly, 30% of restaurant searches are done from smart phones and tablets, not to mention accompanying inquiries for directions and means of transportation. With consumer trends headed even faster in that direction, a reliable plug should be at the top of every packing list.
In addition to keeping in touch, many travelers also require the convenience of simple electrical devices like beard trimmers, hair dryers, curling irons, and more. Without access to electricity, it doesn’t take long to realize how much more difficult life can be.
