Grounded and Non Grounded Plugs

Australia Complete Adapter Plug Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to all parts of the beautiful country of Australia including Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Darwin. 

The Deluxe Australia Adapter Plug Kit ships priority mail with tracking. The Australia adapter plug allows you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Australia wall outlets.  The Standard Australia Adapter Plug Kit comes with one grounded adapter plug.  The Basic Australia Adapter Plug Kit comes with one non grounded adapter plug.  If you are not certain whether you will need a grounded or a non grounded adapter for Australia, watch Going In Style's Adapter Plug Video showing grounded and Non Grounded Plugs.

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

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.

Electrical Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Australia operates on 240 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, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

Be sure to check each individual appliance to see if it is dual voltage.  You can watch Going In Style's video on how to check to see if your appliance is dual voltage.

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. Make sure you check all your electronics, appliances and electrics and make sure these are dual voltage and can run on foreign power. Adapter plugs DO NOT change voltage, watts, electricity, adaptors only change the pin configuration of a power plug so you can plug your US hair dryer into Australia wall sockets.

About Australia

Geography

Australia is located in Oceania and is slightly smaller than the US contiguous 48 states. Its climate is generally arid and a bit tropical in the north. The terrain is mostly low plateau with deserts. There are fertile plains in the southeast. Australia is the world’s smallest continent, yet the sixth-largest country.

Currency

Currency in Australia is the Australian Dollar (AUD). Credit cards are generally accepted everywhere. ATMs are available in major cities. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout the country and numerous hotels and vendors accept US dollars.

Staying Connected

Australia has an excellent telephone system. When travelling to Australia you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Australia SIM card. 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.

Australia has over 16 million internet hosts and over 16 million internet users. There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes in major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
