I don't have a huge pool of experience from which to draw, but the one
time I used a train's power jack, it caught my mobile phone on fire[0].
I suppose I should be grateful that thugs in military uniforms didn't

     plane outlets don't do a lot of filtering, as the power is expected
     to be very clean.
