Useful for travellers and EE's wanting to design or

Russell, again politics ?

"Afganistan: Voltage may vary from 160 to 280"

"USA: Electricity suppliers aim to keep most customers supplied
between 114 and 126 V most of the time"

Which is the difference ?

Normally there is a nominal 280V in Afghanistan, but then USA withdraws 120V
so it becomes 160 <grin>

Some people can see politics in anything.

All this is saying that if you plug your US equipment in in
Afghanistan then you will always get more than enough
voltage for your needs. What more could you want?

One answer to that may be "a C, D, or F plug when connecting
US equipment in Afghanistan". (Or a C or E plug for use in a
Mongolian Yurt).

YVMV.
