Going In Style Deluxe Angola Complete Adapter Plug Kit comes with two adapter plugs for Angola and includes both a grounded and a non-grounded plug. The Angola Adapter Travel Kit will work in any city in Angola.
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 Plug)
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 Plug)
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.
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.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Angola operates on 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.
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 need to purchase an adapter plug for your destination country in order to plug your iPad charger into Africa wall outlets. 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.
Angola is located in Southern Africa and its area is twice the size of Texas. The climate is semiarid in the south and along the coast to Luanda. The north is cool and dry from May to October and hot and rainy from November to April. The terrain is mostly coastal plains.
Currency in Angola is Kwanza (AOA). Credit cards are not generally accepted, but some larger hotels and restaurants will accept American Express and Visa. ATMs are available in major cities, however banks may not accept foreign cards, therefore bringing cash or traveler cheques is advisable. Money can be exchanged at banks throughout the country and numerous hotels and vendors accept US dollars.
Angola has a limited telephone system. State-owned telecom had a monopoly for fixed-lines until 2005. Mobile-cellular service providers began operations in 2001. Cell phone coverage is limited to major cities. When traveling to Angola you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Angola 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.
There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes in major cities. However, access outside major cities is limited. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
