Grounded Versus Non Grounded Adapters

The Cook Islands are located in Oceania in the South Pacific Ocean.

The Cook Islands Adapter Set allows you to plug your North America appliance into Cook Islands wall outlets.  A converter may still be required depending on what appliance you are taking on your trip.

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. Check to make sure your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor and other appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.  Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.

Cook Islands is located in Oceania in the South Pacific Ocean and uses the same type of adapter plug as Australia and New Zealand.

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.

Electrical Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

The Cook Islands 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.


About Cook Islands

NZ_017_large.jpg

Geography

The Cook Islands are located in Oceania, group of islands in the South Pacific Ocean, about half way between Hawaii and New Zealand. The area is 1.3 times the size of Washington, DC. The climate is tropical oceanic; moderated by trade winds; a dry season from April to November and a more humid season from December to March. The terrain is low coral atolls in north; volcanic, hilly islands in south. The northern Cook Islands are seven low-lying, sparsely populated, coral atolls; the southern Cook Islands, where most of the population lives.

Currency

Currency in Cook Island is the New Zealand Dollar (NZD). Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks, but some banks in outer islands will not exchange travelers’ cheques.

Staying Connected

Telecom Cook Islands offers international direct dialing, Internet, email, fax, and Telex. Individual islands are connected by a combination of satellite earth stations, microwave systems, and VHF and HF radiotelephone; within the islands, service is provided by small exchanges connected to subscribers by open-wire, cable, and fiber-optic cable. When traveling to Cook Islands, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Cook Islands 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 Cook Islands, has 3,565 internet hosts and 6,000 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes, hotels, post offices and at the Telecom Cook Islands office. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
