Adapter Plug Grounded Travel Russia
Adapter Plug Grounded Travel Russia
Grounded Russia adapter plug has two round pins similar to the Continental Europe adapter plug.
Russia 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.
Russia adaptor plug has two round pins similar to the Continental Europe adapter plug, however the pins are a slightly different size than the European adapter. Grounded Russia adapter plug adapts your foreign (US, China, Australia) appliance plugs to fit Russia wall outlets.
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.
The GUR Adapter Plug is used in the following countriesAzerbaijan
Russia is located in North Asia bordering the Arctic Ocean, extending from Europe (the portion west of the Urals) to the North Pacific Ocean. Its climate ranges from steppes in the south through humid continental in much of European Russia; subarctic in Siberia to tundra climate in the polar north; winters vary from cool along Black Sea coast to frigid in Siberia; summers vary from warm in the steppes to cool along Arctic coast. The terrain is broad plain with low hills west of Urals; vast coniferous forest and tundra in Siberia; uplands and mountains along southern border regions. Russia is the largest country in the world in terms of area.
Currency in Russia is the Rouble (RUB). Credit cards are accepted in major hotels, restaurants and tourist hotspots, however not all establishments accept credit cards so it is best to carry some cash in Roubles. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can easily be exchanged in banks throughout Russia.
Russia’s telephone system is experiencing significant changes; there are more than 1,000 companies licensed to offer communication services; access to digital lines has improved, particularly in urban centers; Russia has made progress toward building the telecommunications infrastructure necessary for a market economy; the estimated number of mobile subscribers jumped from fewer than 1 million in 1998 to nearly 240 million by the end of 2010; a large demand for fixed line service remains unsatisfied. In rural areas, the telephone services are still outdated, inadequate, and low density. When traveling to Russia you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Russia 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.
Russia has 13.758 million internet hosts and over 40.853 million internet users. Internet and e-mail services are improving; internet access is available in internet cafes and major hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
