    Power Flickers? Is that what we call "Power Surges" in the UK?
    If so, that's what fuses and circuit breakers are for...

    not quite, my house sometimes gets flickers where the power goes out for a couple seconds then it comes back on. all my wall powered electronics are hooked up to a power backup. it's not faulty house wiring, we just live so far out of town. getting a power brick that is essentially a large capacitor saves me from having to buy another one.
    so xxkisamexx, i think you got the numbers backwards

    but me staying in town means that we have as skinny bill stated fuse boxes and circuit breakers in the rare instance that a "flicker" happens and rare i mean rare as in the power will only go out if something major happens i.e a transformer blows other than that power not going anywhere

    So am I correct in saying that US plugs don't have fuses in them? :O

    some do, mine don't though. those are the expensive sockets...

    our power sometimes goes out because some idiot ran into the pole with a car(last week for instance) i never have an issue with too much power(fuses and fuse boxes) you're not going to blow a fuse or trip a circuit if you have less power. it's an issue of too little power or no power at all.

    UK Plug (not socket) note the fuse...

    so THATS what the insides of the plugs look like... nope, dont have any of those... actually... my surge protectors do but not really anything else.

    Haha, another place where the UK plug rules all! >:D
    it's like every device has it's own (disposable) circuit breaker.

    Yeah, it's "British Standard" that a plug MUST have a 3A, 5A or 13A fuse (A = Amp[eres]).
    If something stops working, first thing you do is check the fuse. Many people throw away perfectly functioning technology because they didn't check the fuse. Costs you about 50p ($1) to replace.
    Modern plugs don't open up like that, but have a slot that you wedge open with a screwdriver to replace the fuse.

    (PS, incase you didn't notice, the fuse is the thing that says Bussmann on it. You can just see the "13A" written on it, meaning it was a high power device such as a Kettle, Washing Machine, Drier etc)

    i work on cars and bikes and what-have-you so i'm familiar with fuses and amps. hell, i wired up a voltage converter (12v into 24v) and changed it from AC to DC so i could run a military headlight on my 1984 ATV since i can't find a stock headlight with mount.
