Italy Adapter Plug
 

Italy Complete Travel Adapter Plug Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to all parts of the beautiful country of Italy including Rome, Venice, Florence, and Milan.

Deluxe kit ships priority mail with tracking. The Italy adapter plug allows you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Italy wall outlets. Italy is located in Southern Europe and uses a unique grounded adapter plug. Italy uses the non grounded, or non-earthed, Continental Europe, two pin adapter plug used in many parts of Europe.

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. If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Italy operates on 230 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 appliance is dual voltage before you leave on your trip.  Watch Going In Style's Dual Voltage Video or read Going In Style's Blog about Dual Voltage.

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.

Grounded Adapter Plugs

If you are traveling with a grounded United States 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.  Grounded plugs are also known as earthed adapter plugs.

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.  Non-Grounded plugs are also known as non earthed adapters.

Watch our video on grounded vs non-grounded adapters.

You may still need a converter when you travel depending on what appliances you are bringing.  Check to see if you appliance is dual voltage before you leave on your trip.
