Grounded or Non Grounded Plugs

Nigeria is located in Western Africa and uses two different type of adapter plugs, one with large square pins and one with large round pins.  The large, square pin adapter plug is also used in the UK.   Remember a converter may still be necessary depending on what appliances you are bringing.  The Deluxe Nigeria Adapter Plug Kit comes with a total of four adapter plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your Nigeria adapter plugs in time for your trip.  The Standard Nigeria Adapter Set comes with two grounded adapters.  The Basic Nigeria Adapter Plug Set comes with two non grounded adapter plugs.  If you are not certain whether you need  a grounded or non grounded plug, watch Going In Style's Adapter Plug Video showing the difference between a grounded and a non grounded plug.

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.

Nigeria operates on 230 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 Nigeria

Geography

The Nigeria is located in Western Africa, bordering the Gulf of Guinea, between Benin and Cameroon. The area is slightly more than twice the size of California. The climate varies; equatorial in south, tropical in center, arid in north.

Currency

Currency in Nigeria is the Naira (NGN). Credit cards are generally not accepted at establishments in Nigeria and travelers should plan to carry cash. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks and at major hotels.

Staying Connected

In Nigeria further expansion and modernization of the fixed-line telephone network is needed; network quality remains a problem. The addition of a second fixed-line provider in 2002 resulted in faster growth but subscribership remains only about 1 per 100 persons; mobile-cellular services growing rapidly, in part responding to the shortcomings of the fixed-line network; multiple cellular providers operate nationally with subscribership approaching 60 per 100 persons in 2010. When traveling to Nigeria you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Nigeria 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.

Nigeria has 936 internet hosts and 43.989 million internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
