The primary function of the power plug is to convert the alternating current (AC) into the direct flow (DC) and deliver it into the plugin device, according to its requirement. There are many uses of power plugs, and they can be used for charging and also for powering battery for operating devices. There are many types of caps that are according to the domestic socket. Like, there is a different plug for daily use, travelling and many more. The international adopters are entirely different from local adopters. There is a difference in Australian power plug adapter and EU power plug adapter; the EU power plug adapter need UK power outlet adapter.

How to choose the right adapter:
If you are looking for an AC adapter, then you should make sure that you must check the following
1. The volts of output adopter match the related input devices.
2. The output of the adopter must be equal or higher than the rated device's mAh.
3. The secure fixation of the plug into the device.

Manufacturers often write all the input and output info on the sticker that is attached with the adopters. If you don’t understand the volts and amp than check the following:

How to check the volts:
Almost all adopter can convert the AC into DC, but still, there is a need to check them before purchasing. 
It is mostly written near the power connector port and usually V or VAC. In some places VCD also written, these all terminologies are used for mention Volts and their supply. The choice of correct volts is also critical because if you chose carelessly than your device will get harm. The most common use volts are 3V to 18V. 

How to check the Amp:

As same as volts, it's also mentioned on the sticker of the adopter. It’s probably written close to the power port. The connector you pick must most likely supply in any event the present rating of the gadget. Try not to stress if the connector has a higher score as the gadget will devour what it needs. For the most part, a higher power connector will be progressively costly, so on the off chance that you have the choice merely coordinate the gadget's capacity.
Your gadget is probably not going to work on the off chance that you have a connector with a lower An or mAh yield, at that point the device, and on the off chance that it operates the connector is probably going to get exceptionally hot and could be perilous
