Direct Current vs Alternate Current
So what exactly is the problem with powering electronic devices using AC power?
All electronic devices are powered via DC using an AC/DC adapter plug. The only reason we are using AC power is because of our inherited and out of date power grid infrastructures. ELe®’s unique Low Voltage power infrastructures eliminate the waste of AC/DC conversion and can run electronic devices far more efficiently making significant energy cost and carbon emission savings.
