Will you need a grounded or a non-grounded plug?

The country of Kiribati is a group of islands located in Oceania. Kiribati uses a couple of different type of adapter plugs.

Going In Style Deluxe Kiribati Adapter Plug Kit comes with a total of three adapter plugs.  The Kiribati Deluxe Adapter Kit includes both grounded and non-grounded plugs.

Going In Style Standard Kiribati Adapter Kit comes with a grounded plug.  The Basic Going In Style Kiribati Adapter Kit comes with two non-grounded plugs.

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

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Kiribati 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 Kiribati.

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.

Kiribati operates on 110-220 volt electricity and is generated at 50 – 60 Hz (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, 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.

You can learn more about adapters and transformers on Going In Style's Blog.

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 Kiribati

Staying Connected

When travelling to Corsica (France) you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Corsica (France) SIM card or purchase a phone when you arrive. You can also call your mobile provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone if you decide to bring your own 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.

Internet is available at internet cafes. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
