North America Adapter Plug

Canada is a country in the northern part of North America.  It is bordered by the United States.  Canada uses the same type of two flat pin adapter as the United States and Mexico uses.  If you are traveling to Canada, US and Mexico you will only need this type of adapter to use your Australia, China or European Appliances.  Canada adaptors allow you to plug in your Australia, China and European appliances while visiting Canada.  The adapters change the pin configuration to fit into Canada wall outlets.

The Deluxe Going In Style Canada Adapter Plug Kit comes with two adapter plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking.  This Kit is great for someone traveling to Canada from overseas such as Australia, China or Europe.

The Standard Canada Adapter Kit comes with a grounded plug.  The Basic Canada Adapter Kit comes with a non-grounded plug

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. 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 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.

Watch Going In Style's Adaptor Video to see if you will need a grounded or a non-grounded adapter for your trip to Canada.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Canada operates on 120 volt electricity and is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. Many foreign countries operate on 50Hz. 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.

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.

Converter- Changing Current Voltage

Going in Style adapters allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. Adapter plugs DO NOT convert voltage and only change the configuration of the pins. When voltage conversion is needed, use an electricity converter. An electricity converter changes the voltage input into your appliance. The United States electrical appliances operate on a lower current of 110-120 volts AC (Alternating Current). Most of the world operates on 220-240 volts AC. Therefore converter units enable your electronic and non-electronic appliances to run on foreign electricity (220-240 volts) to match the voltage requirements of your 110-120 volt device. Failure to run your appliance with a converter could damage your appliance.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though a country uses North American sockets, the sockets are not required to be polarized. Since devices such as laptop have a polarized plug with one prong wider than the other, you will still need an adapter to use your plug in some countries.  However, outlets in Canada will most likely be polarized.

About Canada

Geography

Canada is located in Eastern Northern North America, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean on the east, North Pacific Ocean on the west, and the Arctic Ocean on the north, north of the conterminous US and its area is slightly larger than the US. Its climate varies from temperate in south to subarctic and arctic in north. The terrain is mostly plains with mountains in west and lowlands in southeast. Canada is the second-largest country in world (after Russia); strategic location between Russia and US via north polar route; approximately 90% of the population is concentrated within 160 km of the US border. Natural resources in Canada include silver, fish and copper.

Currency

Currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollar (CAD). Credit cards are generally accepted everywhere. Foreign money and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Canada.

Staying Connected

Canada has excellent telephone service provided by modern technology and a domestic satellite system with about 300 earth stations. Cell phone coverage is excellent. When travelling to Canada you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Canada 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.

Canada has over 8.515 million internet hosts and over 26.96 million internet users. There is internet access in hotels, coffee shops, fast food chains and airports throughout the country. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
