How to tell the difference between a grounded and a non-grounded plug

Mali is a country located in Africa.  When traveling to Mali it is important to take along the correct adapter plug for your trip so you can charge your cell phone and tablet, use your e-reader, and operate your electric razor.

Adapter plugs allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter) unless your appliance is dual voltage. Check to make sure your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor and other appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.  Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.

Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter).

Grounded Adapter Plugs

If you are traveling with a grounded United States dual/multi-voltage appliance or using a grounded Transformer you will need to use a grounded adapter plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin.

Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs

Going In Style offers non-grounded adapter plugs for use with your voltage converter, transformer, or dual/multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Mali operates on 220 volt electricity and is generated at 50Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. This difference in cycles may cause the motor in your 60Hz United States appliance to operate slightly slower when used on 50Hz foreign electricity. Most modern electronic equipment including battery chargers, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

Computers and Apple Products

If you are traveling overseas with a Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Asus, laptop or Apple device such as an iPad, chances are you won’t need a voltage converter. Most laptops are multi-voltage and will operate on voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts. However, computers do need to make safe connections to foreign power systems and a surge protector is recommended and you will still need an adapter to use your plug.

About Mali

Geography

Mali is located in interior Western Africa, southwest of Algeria, north of Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire, and Burkina Faso, west of Niger and its area is slightly less than twice the size of Texas. It is the world's fourth-largest island. The climate is subtropical to arid; hot and dry (February to June); rainy, humid, and mild (June to November); cool and dry (November to February). The terrain is mostly flat to rolling northern plains covered by sand; savanna in south, rugged hills in northeast.

Currency

Currency in Mali is the Franc (XOF). Credit cards are rarely accepted and it is best to carry small amounts of cash. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Mali’s domestic telephone system is unreliable but improving; increasing use of local radio loops to extend network coverage to remote areas. Fixed-line subscribership remains less than 1 per 100 persons; mobile-cellular subscribership has increased sharply and now exceeds 50 per 100 persons. When traveling to Mali you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Mali SIM card. You can also contact your mobile service provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone. Most cell phone battery rechargers should be multi-voltage, therefore will not require a converter. If the charger says 100-240 volts, 50-60 cycles then your charger in multi-voltage.

Mali has 438 internet hosts and over 249,800 internet users. Internet access is available in internet café and at a few hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
