Grounded and Non Grounded Adaptors

Algeria is located in Northern Africa and uses a two round pin adapter plug that is used in Continental Europe. Going In Style Deluxe Algeria Travel Adapter Plug Kit comes with a total of four adapter plugs and includes both grounded and non-grounded adapters.  Algeria adapter plugs have a pin configuration to fit into Algeria wall outlet sockets. As always, Going In Style's Deluxe Adapter Kit ships Priority Mail.

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 ( Earthed 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 ( Non-Earthed 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.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Algeria operates on 127-220 volt electricity and is generated at 50Hz (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, computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

Be sure to check each individual appliance to see if it is dual voltage.  You can watch Going In Style's video on how to check to see if your appliance is dual voltage.

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.   You will not need a converter for your iPad or iPhone since these are dual voltage.  You will need to buy an adapter plug to charge your iPad or iPhone when traveling to Africa.  Most apple products, such as your iPad, has a two prong plug for the charger and a non-grounded plug will work for a non-grounded, two prong plug.  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.


About Algeria

Geography

Algeria is located in Northern Africa, bordering the Mediterranean Sea and is 3.5 times the size of Texas. The climate is arid and mild with wet winters and hot, dry summers. The terrain is mostly high plateau and desert; some mountains; narrow, discontinuous coastal plain. Algeria is the largest country in Africa.

Iraq is located in the Middle East, bordering the Persian Gulf, between Iran and Kuwait and its area is twice the size of Idaho. Its climate is mostly desert; mild to cool winters with dry, hot, cloudless summers; northern mountainous regions along Iranian and Turkish borders experience cold winters with occasionally heavy snows that melt in early spring, sometimes causing extensive flooding in central and southern Iraq. The terrain is mostly broad plains; reedy marshes along Iranian border in south with large flooded areas; mountains along borders with Iran and Turkey.

Currency

Currency in Algeria is the Dinar (DZD). Credit cards are accepted in larger towns however establishments will not accept credit card, especially in smaller towns. It is best to carry small amounts of cash. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at the government run national bank and at some hotels. Smaller banks cannot exchange currency.

Staying Connected

Algeria’s main operator of telephone and internet services is Algeria Telecom. There are a limited number of fixed lines. Algeria has high speed, fiber-optic submarine cable system that provides links to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. When traveling to Costa Rica you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Costa Rica 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.

Algeria has over 561 internet hosts and 4.7 million internet users. Internet is available at hotels and internet cafes in larger cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to keep your devices charged.
