Grounded and Non Grounded Plugs

Peru travel adaptor kit has the adapters you will need for traveling to the South America country of Peru.  These adaptors allow your North America appliances to fit into Peru wall power outlets.  Note that some laptops have a grounded, three prong plug and require a grounded adaptor.  

Two of Peru's three adapters have two flat pins that fit into Peru and US outlets.  Outlet sockets in Peru are not required to be polarized, whereas US appliance have polarized plugs.  In order for US appliances to fit into Peru outlets a polarize adapter may be needed.  If you decide you don't need the North America flat pin adaptor, make sure you still bring the two round pin type adapter plug for your trip in case you encounter a round pin wall outlet.

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. Check to make sure your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor and other appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.  Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.

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.

 Computers and Apple Products

If you are traveling overseas with a 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.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Peru 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, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

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.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Peru 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 Peru.


About Peru

Geography

Peru is located in Western South America, bordering the South Pacific Ocean, between Chile and Ecuador and its area is slightly smaller than Alaska. Its climate varies from tropical in east to dry desert in west; temperate to frigid in Andes. The terrain is western coastal plain, high and rugged Andes in center (sierra) and eastern lowland jungle of Amazon Basin.

Currency

Currency in Peru is the Nuevo (PKR). Credit cards are widely accepted in Lima and tourist hotspots. It is best to carry some cash because not all establishments accept credit cards. Foreign currency can be exchanged in banks throughout Peru and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged in most banks in Lima.

Staying Connected

Peru has an adequate telephone system for most requirements; nationwide microwave radio relay system and a domestic satellite system with 12 earth stations and domestic fixed-line teledensity is only about 10 per 100 persons; mobile-cellular teledensity, spurred by competition among multiple providers, is approaching 100 telephones per 100 persons. When travelling to Peru you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Peru 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.

Peru has 232,515 internet hosts and over 9.158 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet cafes, hotels and restaurants. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
