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

Cuba Deluxe Travel Adapter Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to Cuba. When traveling to a foreign country it is important to take along the correct adapter for your trip. Cuba uses a couple of different type of adapter plugs. Deluxe Cuba adapter plug kit comes with both grounded and non grounded plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking.

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. A non-grounded adapter may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter. If your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor is not dual voltage you will most likely need a converter to use your electric. For more information see Going In Style's Adapter and Converter Finder.

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

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Cuba 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 Cuba.

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.

Cuba operate on 120-220 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, 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.

About Cuba

Geography

Cuba is located in Caribbean, island between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, 150 km south of Key West, Florida. The area is slightly larger slightly smaller than Pennsylvania. The climate is tropical; moderated by trade winds; dry season (November to April); rainy season (May to October). The terrain is mostly flat to rolling plains, with rugged hills and mountains in the southeast.

Currency

Currency Cuba is the Convertible Peso (CUC). Credit cards are widely accepted as long as it is not a US credit card. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Greater investment into the telephone system beginning in 1994 and the establishment of a New Ministry of Information Technology and Communications in 2000 has resulted in improvements in the system; national fiber-optic system under development; 95% of switches digitized by end of 2006; mobile-cellular telephone service is expensive and must be paid in convertible pesos, which effectively limits subscribership. Fixed-line density remains low at 10 per 100 inhabitants; mobile-cellular service expanding but remains less than 10 per 100 persons. When travelling to Cuba, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Cuba 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.

The Cuba has 3,196 internet hosts and 1.606 million internet users. Internet is available in some hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
