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 also called Earthed
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 also called NonEarthed
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.
Benin 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.
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.
Benin is located in Western Africa, bordering the Bight of Benin, between Nigeria and Togo. Its area is slightly smaller than Pennsylvania. Its climate is tropical; hot, humid in south; semiarid in north. The terrain is mostly flat to undulating plain; some hills and low mountains. Sandbanks make access to a coast difficult with no natural harbors, river mouths, or islands.
Currency in Benin is the Franc (CFA). Credit cards are generally accepted in major cities and ATMs are available in major cities as well. Foreign money and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Benin.
Benin has an inadequate system of open-wire, microwave radio relay, and cellular connections; fixed-line network characterized by aging, deteriorating equipment. Fixed-line teledensity is only about 2 per 100 persons; spurred by the presence of multiple mobile-cellular providers, cellular telephone subscribership has been increasing rapidly. When travelling to Benin you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Benin 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.
Benin has over 495 internet hosts and over 200,100 internet users. There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
