Can electricity from outlets be somehow "stronger" from city to city in the US?

Asked by Mariah (19395 points ) October 1st, 2011

I know voltage is standardized, but is there any other property of electricity that could vary its “strength” from place to place? I’m just noticing that my phone charges much more slowly in this hotel room than it does at home and I’m wondering what could account for that?
