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

Sierra Leone is located in Western Africa and uses a couple different style of adapter plugs.  When traveling to Sierra Leone it is important to take along the correct adapter plug for your trip. Buy Sierra Leone adapter plugs before your departure.

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.

Sierra Leone 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 Sierra Leone

Geography

giraffeafrica.jpg

The Sierra Leone is located in Western Africa, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, between Guinea and Liberia. The area is slightly smaller than South Carolina. The climate is tropical; hot, humid; summer rainy season (May to December); winter dry season (December to April).

Currency

Currency in Sierra Leone is the Leone (SLL). Credit cards are accepted at some places, but a lot of establishments will only accept cash. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Sierra Leone has a marginal telephone service with poor infrastructure. The national microwave radio relay trunk system connects Freetown to Bo and Kenema; while mobile-cellular service is growing rapidly from a small base, service area coverage remains limited. When travelling to Sierra Leone you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Sierra Leone 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.

Sierra Leone has 280 internet hosts and 14,900 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
