Adapter Plug Grounded Travel China Australia
China and Oceania grounded adapter plug, with three flat, slanted pins will converter your US appliances to work overseas in Australia, New Zealand, China, Tasmania, Tonga, Uruguay, Cook Islands, East Timor, Samoa...
China / Australia adapter is grounded and works with appliance plugs that have either two or three pins. If you are traveling with a laptop with a three prong plug you will need a grounded adapter.
Also a converter may still be required depending on what appliances you will be using in a foreign country.
Grounded Australian angular style adapter plug accepts American or European 3 or 2 prong adapters and converts them to the Australian, China style electrical plug. NOTE: All Going In Style adapters allow US plugs (two polarized flat pins) to adapt to fit other country outlets. Your North America appliance plug will fit into all Going In Style adapters. Sometimes the fit is tight so that the plug does not fall out of the adapter. Just push the plug in firmly and after a couple of uses the adapter should loosen up.
This adapter plug works in China, Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Tasmania, Tonga and the South America country of Uruguay.
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.
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.
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.
List of Countries that Use North America Type Sockets
Australia is located in Oceania and is slightly smaller than the US contiguous 48 states. Its climate is generally arid and a bit tropical in the north. The terrain is mostly low plateau with deserts. There are fertile plains in the southeast. Australia is the world’s smallest continent, yet the sixth-largest country.
Currency in Australia is the Australian Dollar (AUD). Credit cards are generally accepted everywhere. ATMs are available in major cities. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout the country and numerous hotels and vendors accept US dollars.
Australia has an excellent telephone system. When traveling to Australia you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Australia SIM card. 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.
Australia has over 16 million internet hosts and over 16 million internet users. There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes in major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
China is located in Eastern Asia, bordering the East China Sea, Korea Bay, Yellow Sea, and South China Sea, between North Korea and Vietnam and its area slightly smaller than the US. Its climate is extremely diverse; tropical in south to subarctic in north. The terrain mostly mountains, high plateaus, deserts in west; plains, deltas, and hills in east. China is the world's fourth largest country (after Russia, Canada, and US). Natural resources in China include tungsten, aluminum and zinc.
Currency in China is the Renminbi Yuan (CNY). Credit cards are generally accepted in major cities. Foreign money and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout China.
China’s domestic and international telephone services are increasingly available for private use, but there is an unevenly distributed domestic system serves principal cities, industrial centers, and many town. China continues to develop its telecommunications infrastructure, and is partnering with foreign providers to expand its global reach. China, in the summer of 2008, began a major restructuring of its telecommunications industry, resulting in the consolidation of its six telecom service operators to three, China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom, each providing both fixed-line and mobile services. Cell phone coverage is excellent. When traveling to China you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid China 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.
China has over 19.772 million internet hosts and over 389 million (2009)internet users. There is internet access in hotels, internet cafes, and coffee shops throughout the major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
