110V AC house current

Hello.

The power unit works on ordinary 110 AC house current. When the hose is plugged into any of the inlets, the motor starts automatically.

I presume that "110V AC house current" sounds better than "110 AC house current". What do you think?

    I think it depends on who you're writing for. I would check the Internet and see if you have more hits for "110V AC" or "110 AC". I was just talking about this the other day with a European family and asked them, "Do you all use 110 or 220 in France?" If you had asked me what the numbers meant, I would have said the current, not the volts, because I don't know that much about electricity.

    Just checking, but I hope this sentence is not intended to have anything to do with the electricity.

    I say this because it's suspiciously close to saying "when the electric cord is plugged into any of the electrical outlets...."
