Grounded and Non Grounded Adapters

Haiti is located in the Caribbean bordering the Atlantic Ocean. When traveling to Haiti it is important to take along the correct adapters for your trip.  Haiti uses a North America style of adapter plug that is used in the United States and Canada.  Haiti Complete Travel Adapter Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to the country of Haiti.  The Deluxe Kit comes with two adapter plugs, one grounded and one non-grounded plug. 

Haiti's Standard Adapter Kit comes with a grounded plug.  The Basic Haiti 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. 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 Haiti 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 Haiti.

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.

Haiti operates on 110 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.

If you are traveling to Haiti from the US, chances are you will not need a converter.

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.

About Haiti

Geography

Haiti is located in Caribbean, between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, west of the Dominican Republic and its area is slightly smaller than Maryland. Its climate is tropical and semiarid where mountains in east cut off trade winds. The terrain is mostly rough and mountainous.

Currency

Currency in Haiti is the Gourde (HTG). Credit cards are widely at hotels, restaurants and shops. Smaller shops only accept cash. It is best to use banks to obtain cash because ATMs are often unreliable and may overcharge accounts. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, however exchanging travelers’ cheques can be problematic.

Staying Connected

Haiti’s telecommunications infrastructure is among the least developed in Latin America and the Caribbean; domestic facilities are barely adequate; international facilities slightly better. Mobile-cellular telephone services are expanding rapidly due, in part, to the introduction of low-cost GSM phones; mobile-cellular teledensity exceeded 40 per 100 persons in 2010. When travelling to Haiti you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Haiti SIM card. You can also contact your mobile service provider; however it may be difficult to set up an international calling plan while in Haiti. 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.

Haiti has 541 internet hosts and over 1 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet cafes and at some hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
