Adapter Plug Grounded Travel Denmark
Adapter Plug Grounded Travel Denmark
Grounded Denmark Adapter Plug has three round pins and is unique to the country of Denmark. If you are traveling to Denmark with an appliance that has a grounded plug, such as a laptop, then you will need the Denmark grounded adapter plug.
Denmark adapter is grounded and works with appliance plugs that have 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.
Denmark uses a unique grounded, three prong adapter plug. You can view the complete adapter Denmark Kit if you think that you will need a non grounded adapter also.
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. If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters.

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.
Hej Danmark! Denmark is known for its delicious food, Danish pastries come to mind, and its charming fairy tale like towns which were once home to the famous writer Hans Christian Anderson.
Denmark is located in Central Northern Europe, bordering the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, on a peninsula north of Germany (Jutland); also includes several major islands (Sjaelland, Fyn, and Bornholm) and its area twice the size of Massachusetts. Its climate is temperate; humid and overcast; mild, windy winters and cool summers. In these summer months there are many outdoor fairs and activities. Winters can be a bit less hospital to tourists looking to see the country side, since the days are shorter and the weather is colder. Spring can also be a great time to visit. The weather is not quite as warm as it is in the summer, however there will be less crowds since it is not a busy tourist season and children will be in school during this time of year. The terrain is low and flat to gently rolling plains. Natural resources include fish, salt, limestone and chalk.
Currency in Denmark is the Danish Krone (DKK). Credit cards are generally accepted in major cities. Foreign money and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Denmark. Travelers’ cheques are also accepted at some hotels and restaurants.
Denmark has excellent telephone and telegraph service and multiple cellular mobile communications system. Cell phone coverage is outstanding. When traveling to Denmark you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Denmark 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.
Denmark has over 4.285 million internet hosts and over 4.75 million internet users. There is internet access in tourist hotels and internet cafes throughout the major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
