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

The country of Turks and Caicos is located in the Caribbean.  Turks and Caicos uses two different style of adapter plugs.  One style of plug is the two, round pin, Continental Europe adapter.  The other adapter style is the two flat pin North America plug.

The Deluxe Adapter Plug Kit for Turks and Caicos comes with a total of four adapter plugs and includes both the grounded and non-grounded style of plugs.  Going In Style's Deluxe Adapter Plug Kits always ship Priority USPS Mail with tracking so you will have all your adapters to you in time for your trip.

The Standard Turks and Caicos Adapter Plug Kit comes with two grounded adapter plugs for plugging in your grounded, three-prong plug, devices.  The Basic Turks and Caicos Adapter Plug Kit comes with two non-grounded adapter plugs for plugging in your non-grounded, two-prong devices. 

Adapter plugs allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires 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.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Turks & Caicos Islands 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 Turks & Caicos Islands.

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 adapter 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.

Turks & Caicos Islands 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, 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.
