Laptops often times will have a grounded plug.

Uganda is located in the central part of Africa. The country of Uganda uses a couple of different type of adapters. Deluxe Kit comes with four adapters and includes both grounded and non-grounded plugs.  Uganda adapters allow you to plug your US appliance into Uganda wall outlets. Buy Africa adapter plugs online before your trip, otherwise you may not know where to buy adapter plugs to adapt US power plugs in Uganda.

If you are not sure whether you need a grounded or non grounded adapter, watch Going In Style's Video on adapters.

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.

Uganda operates on 240 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.

Check to make sure your electrics are dual voltage before you leave for your trip.  If your appliances are not dual voltage you may want to purchase a converter or transformer.

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 Uganda

Geography

Uganda is located in East-Central Africa, west of Kenya, east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The climate is tropical; generally rainy with two dry seasons (December to February, June to August); semiarid in northeast. The terrain is mostly plateau with rim of mountains.

Currency

Currency in Uganda is the Uganda Shilling (UGX). Credit cards are accepted at major establishments, but cash is used more often than credit card. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks. You may encounter some difficulty trying to exchange travelers’ cheques.

Staying Connected

Uganda’s mobile cellular service is increasing rapidly, but the number of main lines is still deficient; work is underway on a national backbone information and communications technology infrastructure; international phone networks and Internet connectivity provided through satellite and VSAT applications. Mobile-cellular teledensity is about 40 per 100 persons in 2010. When travelling to Uganda you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Uganda 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.

Uganda has 33,082 internet hosts and 3.2 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet cafes and hotels in major cities. It may be difficult to connect to the internet in less populated areas. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
