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

Tonga Travel Adapter Kit has the adapters you will need for traveling to the country of Tonga.  The adapters allow your North American appliances to fit into Tonga wall power outlets. Tonga is located in the South Pacific Ocean in a region called Oceania.  Tonga uses a couple of different type of adapter plugs.

The Complete Deluxe Tonga Adapter Plug Kit includes both grounded and non grounded plugs for your trip to Tonga.

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.

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.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Tonga 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 Tonga.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

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


About Tonga

Staying Connected

Competition between Tonga Telecommunications Corporation (TCC) and Shoreline Communications Tonga (SCT) is accelerating expansion of telecommunications; SCT granted approval to introduce high-speed digital service for telephone, Internet, and television while TCC has exclusive rights to operate the mobile-phone network; international telecom services are provided by government-owned Tonga Telecommunications International (TTI). The combined fixed-line and mobile-cellular teledensity is about 70 telephones per 100 persons; fully automatic switched network.

When travelling to Tonga you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Tonga SIM card or purchase a phone when you arrive. 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.

Japan has 63.466 million internet hosts and over 99.182 million internet users. Internet access is widely available in internet cafes, coffee shops and hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
