Grounded and Non Grounded Adaptors

Guyana in located in South America bordering Suriname.  Guyana uses several different type of adapter plugs.  When traveling to Guyana it is important to take along the correct adapter plug.  The Deluxe Guyana Adapter Plug Kit comes with both grounded and non grounded plugs. 

The Standard Guyana Adapter Plug Kit comes with Grounded plugs.  The Basic Guyana Adapter Plug Kit comes with Non Grounded Plugs.

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. A non-grounded adapter may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.  If your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor is not dual voltage you will most likely need a converter to use your electric.  For more information see Going In Style's Adapter and Converter Finder.

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.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Guyana operates on 110-220 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.

Check your appliances to make sure that they are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.

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 Guyana

Geography

trees.jpg

Currency

Currency in Guyana is the Guyanese Dollar (GYD. Credit cards are generally not accepted.

Staying Connected

Guyana has a fair telephone system for long-distance service; microwave radio relay network for trunk lines; many areas still lack fixed-line telephone services. Fixed-line teledensity is about 20 per 100 persons; mobile-cellular teledensity about 75 per 100 persons in 2010. When travelling to Guyana, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Guyana 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.

Guyana had 24,840 internet hosts and 189,600 internet users. Internet access is available at internet cafes and hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
