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

Zambia is located in the southern part of Africa.  Zambia uses several types of different adapter plugs.  When traveling to a foreign country it is important to take along the correct adapters for your trip.  The Deluxe Adapter Kit includes six adapters for Zambia and comes with both grounded and non grounded plugs.

The Standard Zambia Adapter Kit comes with grounded adapters.  The Basic Zambia Adapter Kit comes with non-grounded 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. 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 (Earthed)

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 (Non-Earthed)

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.

Zambia 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.

You may need a converter to use your appliances when traveling to Africa.  Check to make sure all of your electrics are dual voltage before you leave for your trip.  If your electrics are not dual voltage you will want to purchase a voltage 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.

To plug in your laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod, or tablet just use an adapter for your destination country and bring your normal power cord or charging cord.  Plug your cord in as usual using an adapter plug.

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.
