Grounded and Non Grounded Plugs

Rwanda is located in Central Africa and uses the same type of adapter plug as Continental Europe including France and Spain.

These adapter plugs will also adapt China and Australia appliances to plug into Rwanda outlets.

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.

Rwanda 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 Rwanda

Geography

africa.jpg

Rwanda is located in Central Africa, east of Democratic Republic of the Congo. The area is slightly smaller than Maryland. The climate is temperate; two rainy seasons (February to April, November to January); mild in mountains with frost and snow possible. The terrain is mostly grassy uplands and hills; relief is mountainous with altitude declining from west to east.

Currency

Currency in Rwanda is the Rwanda Franc (RWF). Credit cards are generally not accepted and it is advisable to carry cash. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, however it may be difficult to exchange travelers’ cheques outside of the capital.

Staying Connected

Rwanda has a small, inadequate telephone system primarily serves business, education, and government. The capital, Kigali, is connected to the centers of the provinces by microwave radio relay and, recently, by cellular telephone service; much of the network depends on wire and HF radiotelephone; combined fixed-line and mobile-cellular telephone density has increased and now exceeds 30 telephones per 100 persons. When traveling to Rwanda you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Rwanda 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.

Rwanda has 1,277 internet hosts and over 1,277 internet users. Internet access is available in internet café and hotels in large towns. Rwanda has many internet hotspots. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
