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

Mauritania is located in Western Africa.  Mauritania uses a two, round pin type of adapter plug.  When traveling to foreign countries it is important to take along the correct adapter plug for each country.

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.

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.

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

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Mauritania 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, 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 Mauritania

Geography

The Mauritania is located in Western Africa, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, between Senegal and Western Sahara. The area is slightly larger than three times the size of New Mexico. The climate is desert; constantly hot, dry, dusty.

Currency

Currency in Mauritania is the Mauritanian Ouguiya (MRO). Credit cards are only accepted at major establishments. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks and at the airport.

Staying Connected

Mauritania has a limited telephone system of cable and open-wire lines, minor microwave radio relay links, and radiotelephone communications stations; mobile-cellular services expanding rapidly. Mauritel, the national telecommunications company, was privatized in 2001 but remains the monopoly provider of fixed-line services; fixed-line teledensity 2 per 100 persons; mobile-cellular network coverage extends mainly to urban areas with a teledensity of 85 per 100 persons; mostly cable and open-wire lines; a domestic satellite telecommunications system links Nouakchott with regional capitals. When traveling to Mauritania, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Mauritania 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.

Mauritania has 28 internet hosts and 75,000 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
