Hi AOG desk, Buzz here. I've seen a normal "wall outlet" under the controls, use it for running an extension cord for using a carpet shampoo machine, heat gun, and a few other gadgets that can't take the 115v / 400 hz airplane power.
And the custodians of the airport plug in their vacuums there to clean the carpet in the jetway.

Living in a 240v country, we use the AC outlet in the bridge for the vacuum cleaners on the aircraft. We have tried 115v cleaners that could plug into the aircraft, but in Europe they are difficult to buy and expensive. For turnrounds we use battery driven cleaners, but on nightstops we use 240v cleaners on an extension cord that we plug into the jetty.
