 Will You Need a Grounded or Non-Grounded Adapter? 

Micronesia is a group of islands located in Oceania in the Pacific Ocean. Micronesia uses a two flat blade style of adapter plug used in North America. When traveling to Oceania it is important to take along the correct adapter for each country you will be visiting.

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

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.

Micronesia 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 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.

About Micronesia

Geography

The Micronesia is located in Oceania and is an island group in the North Pacific Ocean, about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to Indonesia. The area is four times the size of Washington, DC (land area only). The climate is tropical; heavy year-round rainfall, especially in the eastern islands; located on southern edge of the typhoon belt with occasionally severe damage.

Currency

Currency in Micronesia is the US Dollar (USD). Credit cards are generally accepted at major establishments and in tourist areas. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Micronesia has an adequate telephone system. The islands are interconnected by shortwave radiotelephone (used mostly for government purposes), satellite (Intelsat) ground stations, and some coaxial and fiber-optic cable; mobile-cellular service available on Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap. When travelling to Micronesia, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Micronesia 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.

Micronesia has 4,638 internet hosts and 17,000 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes and some hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
