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

Anguilla is located in the Caribbean and uses a North America type of, two flat blade, adapter plug used in many countries in the Caribbean.  

The Going In Style Deluxe Anguilla Adapter Plug Set comes with a total of two adapter plugs, one grounded and one non grounded, and ships Priority Mail with tracking.

These adaptor plugs enable your appliance's plug configuration to fit into this Anguilla's 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.

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

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Anguilla uses North American sockets, the sockets are not required to be polarized. Since devices such as laptops have a polarized plug with one prong wider than the other, you will still need an adapter to use your plug in Anguilla.

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 adaptor 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.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Anguilla operates on 110 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.

Always check your appliances before your trip to make sure all of your appliances and electronics are dual voltage.  If an appliance is not dual voltage you will need a converter.  You can learn more about dual voltage by reading Going In Style's Blog.

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.
