Neat Site - World Voltages

I was looking through my travel book for information about voltages and plug styles in Japan, couldn't find anything, so I started looking on the web and came across this interesting site, which contains drawings of plug styles and electrical voltages for many (if not all) different countries. Thought it might be of interest to some of you and I have never seen anything like this posted here.

The site is http://www.fele.com/empd/tech/fe-power.html

The two prong style dominates, so be sure to have a few 3 to 2 prong adapters if you have 3-prong (grounded) plugs.

Japan is either on 100V or 110V. Pretty sure it is 100V.

Another similar and highly regarded site is Steve Kropla's "Help For World Travellers" at http://www.kropla.com/ . He's a regular on r.t.a. for those who know what that is, and an all-round good guy. His site includes sections on:

World Wide Phone Guide - What you need to hook up your modem just about anywhere!
Quick Link: Phone Plugs Used Around the World.

World Electric Guide - Tips and information on electrical power around the globe.
Quick Link: Electric Plugs and Voltages Used Around the World.

International Dialing Codes - How to call to and from most countries in the world. Includes city/area codes.

World Television Guide - List of television broadcast standards found around the world.

And lots of other neat stuff, to boot.

Steve Kropla's website was featured in Yahoo Internet Life last year as an "Incredibly Useful Site."

Unfortunately, Steve's been noticeably absent from r.t.a. for several months now.
