AC plug adapter from Phihong has USB port
The plug adapter provides voltage drop compensation and meets the US Department of Energy’s (DOE VI) efficiency regulations for external power supplies and the EU’s voluntary Code of Conduct Version 5 Tier 2 requirements.


The adapter has a USB receptacle, field-changeable AC plugs, low leakage current, and voltage drop compensation and are designed for consumer electronics, peripherals, portable equipment, and networking.

The adapter has an AC input voltage range of 100V to 240V and helps offset voltage drop that may be encountered with longer USB cables or USB cables with thin wires, says the company. They offer travellers the convenience of interchangeable plugs, and for OEMs, it means they can minimise inventory and need only stock a single power adapter to cover all global electric systems.


The adapter carries ULus, CE, RCM, PSE, KCC/KC and EAC safety certifications for the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, Korea, and the Eurasian Economic Union (Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan).
