 Grounded plugs have three prongs and require a grounded adapter plug - Laptops often times will have a grounded plug

Togo is located in the western part of the continent of Africa and uses the two round pin type of adapter plug that is used all over continental Europe.  The Deluxe Kit comes with one non grounded two round pin adapter and one grounded two round pin adapter.  Togo adapter's allow you to plug in your US appliance into Togo wall outlets.

The Standard Togo Adapter Kit includes a grounded plug.  The Basic Togo Adapter kit includes 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. This adapter 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.

Togo 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.

Before you travel to Africa, check to make sure all of your devices are dual voltage.  If an electric is not dual voltage you may want to purchase a voltage converter.  You can also purchase a dual voltage electric, such as a hair dryer, that can be used in both the United States and Africa.

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.
