Niger is located in Western Africa and uses the same type of adapter plug as Continental Europe such as countries France and Spain.  These adapter plugs will also adapt China and Australia appliance plugs to fit into Niger wall outlets.  All of Going In Style adapters adapt US appliances to fit into foreign wall outlets.  The Complete Niger Adapter Set comes with two adapter plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your adapters in time for your trip.  The Standard Niger Adapter Kit comes with one grounded adapter plug.  A grounded plug allows you to plug in your, grounded, three prong, appliance plugs such as a laptop.  The Basic Niger Adapter Plug Kit comes with a non grounded, two round pin, adapter plug.  If you are not certain whether you will need a grounded or a non grounded plug for your trip to Niger, watch Going In Style's Adapter Video.

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. If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters.

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.

Niger 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 Niger

Geography

africa.jpg

The Niger is located in Western Africa, southeast of Algeria. The area is slightly less than twice the size of Texas. The climate is desert; mostly hot, dry, dusty; tropical in extreme south.

Currency

Currency in Niger is the Franc (CFA). Credit cards are generally not accepted and establishments only accept cash. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, the airport and hotels.

Staying Connected

Niger has an inadequate; small system of wire, radio telephone communications, and microwave radio relay links concentrated in the southwestern area of Niger. Combined fixed-line and mobile-cellular teledensity remains only about 25 per 100 persons despite a rapidly increasing cellular subscribership base; domestic satellite system with 3 earth stations and 1 planned. When traveling to Niger you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Niger SIM card or purchase a phone when you arrive. You can also contact your mobile service provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone if you decide to bring your own 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.

Niger has 229 internet hosts and 115,900 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes in major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
