+1 to separate the usage from the item.

'Shore power' is not at battery voltage. The vast majority will be for 
smaller ships/boats and will be similar to normal domestic power, 
probably with some weather proofing. In Australia the camp site power 
connections could well be the same connection. Only large international 
ocean gong craft would have power requirements that are larger than a 
domestic household would require larger connections. Aircraft too can 
have an external electrical power connection.
