    Mas matipid 220V, masyado lang mahal sumingil ang Meralco

    The 220V system is newer than the 110V system. One reason why the U.S. is still using it is because they already laid down the infrastructure for 110V system when the 220V system came out. It would have been too costly to switch to another system and impractical to have 110V and 220V systems in one country.

    Di totoo yon.

    Yong electric comsumption nung isang electrical unit nakadepende
    sa power rating nung unit mismo (ie. kung ilang watts yong na-c-consume/hour).

    I would say, mas mapapamahal ka pa nga kung yong unit na gagamitin mo sa pinas is 110V compared to a 220V unit with the
    same specs because you will be using a transformer for the 110V unit. I think the transformer itself comsumes some electricity even
    without plugging any electrical unit on it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    sa pinas, if you are using 220v or 110v pareho lang dahil yung wattage ay pareho lang, sa 220v maliit na Current, sa 110v mataas na current.

    power consumption (Watts) = Volts x Current

    kaya yung bayarin sa Meralco ay kilowatts consumed in an hour (kW/hr)

    Di ako nakikinig sa Electronics class namin. Basta daw ang 2 pinakamahalagang equation ay:

    V = I R

    where V is the voltage in volts, I is the current in amperes and R is the resistance in ohms.

    at

    P = IV

    where P is power in watts.

    Tapos nakalimutan ko na kung pano explain...

    Nyahahahaha sabi ko sa inyo di ako nakikinig.

110 volt = mas matipid sa kuryente?
