Grounded and Non Grounded Plugs

Uruguay adaptors allow you to plug in your North America appliances and electrics, such as cell phones and hair dryers, when traveling to the South America destination of Uruguay.  Uruguay uses several different types of adapter plugs.  When traveling to South America it is important take along the correct adapter plug for your destination country.  The Deluxe Uruguay Adapter Plug Kit comes with five adapters and includes both grounded and non grounded plugs.

The Standard Uruguay Adapter Kit includes grounded adapters.  The Basic Uruguay Adapter Plug Kit includes non grounded adapters.

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.

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.

The climate is warm and temperate; freezing temperatures almost unknown. The terrain is mostly rolling plains and low hills; fertile coastal lowland.

Currency

Staying Connected

Uruguay’s telephone system is fully digitalized. Uruguay has mostly modern facilities concentrated in Montevideo; nationwide microwave radio relay network; overall fixed-line and mobile-cellular teledensity has reached 150 telephones per 100 persons. When travelling to Uruguay you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Uruguay 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.

Uruguay has 945,826 internet hosts and 1.405 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet cafes and hotels for a reasonable rate. Wi-Fi is sometimes available. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
