Grounded and Non Grounded Plugs

Albania is located in Southwestern Europe and uses the same adapter plug as many countries in Continental Europe. These countries include Belgium and Croatia.  Going In Style Deluxe Albania Adapter Plug Travel Kit comes with two Albania adapter (grounded and non grounded) plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking.

These adaptor plugs enable your appliance's plug configuration to fit into India electrical power outlets. 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. Grounded adapter plugs maintain the ground from the electrical outlet to your appliance.

Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

Watch Going In Style's video to see whether you need a grounded or non-grounded adapter when traveling to Albania.

Grounded Adapter Plugs - also called Earthed 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 adaptor plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin.

Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs - also called Non - Earthed 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.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Albania 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, tablets etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

Check to see if your appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.

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.  Your iPad, iPod, or iPhone are dual voltage and will not need a converter, but you will still need an adapter plug for the country you are visiting.  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 plug in your computer or charge your cell pohne.
