Grounded and Non Grounded Plugs

Tunisia is located in Northern Africa and uses the same type of adapter plugs as Italy and parts of Europe. If you are not sure whether you need a grounded or non grounded adapter, watch Going In Style's video about adapters.

The Deluxe Tunisia Adapter Plug Kit includes both grounded and non-grounded plugs.  The Standard Tunisia Adapter Kit includes grounded adapter plugs.  The Basic Tunisia Adapter Travel Kit comes with 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. Buy adapter plugs before your departure; if you need to buy adapters when you arrive at your destination, you might have trouble finding where to buy an adapters in Tunisia.

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.

Tunisia 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.

Check to make sure your appliances are dual voltage before you leave for your trip.  If your electrics are not dual voltage you may want to purchase a voltage converter for your trip to Africa.  You can also purchase dual voltage hair dryers that will work both in Africa and in the US.

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.
