Grounded and Non-Grounded Plugs

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.

An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter).

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Tuvalu operates on 220 volt electricity and is generated at 50Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. Many foreign 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 Tuvalu

Geography

beach

The Tuvalu is located in Oceania, island group consisting of nine coral atolls in the South Pacific Ocean, about one-half of the way from Hawaii to Australia. The area is 0.1 times the size of Washington, DC. The climate is tropical; moderated by easterly trade winds (March to November); westerly gales and heavy rain (November to March).

Currency

Currency in Tuvalu is the Tuvaluan Dollar (TVD); however, Australian Dollars are also used. Credit cards generally not accepted. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Tuvalu’s telephone system serves particular needs for internal communications. 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.

Tuvalu has 138,579 internet hosts and 4,200 internet users. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
