Botswana is located in the southern part of the continent of Africa. The Deluxe kit includes four adapters for the country of Botswana and ships priority mail with tracking. The Botswana adapter plug allows you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Botswana wall outlets.
These adaptor plugs enable your appliance's plug configuration to fit into Botswana electrical power 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. Grounded adapter plugs maintain the ground from the electrical outlet to your appliance.
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
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
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.
Botswana operates on 110-220 volt electricity and is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. Many foreign countries operate on 50Hz. 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. 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.
Botswana is located in Southern Africa, north of South Africa. Its area is slightly smaller than Texas. Its climate is semiarid; warm winters and hot summers. The terrain is predominantly flat to gently rolling tableland; Kalahari Desert in southwest.
Currency in Botswana is the Pula (BWP). Credit cards widely accepted. Foreign money and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Botswana and at the airport. It may be difficult to exchange currency in small villages so plan accordingly.
Botswana is participating in regional development efforts to improve their telephones system by expanding to a fully digital system with fiber-optic cables linking the major population centers in the east. Fixed-line teledensity has declined in recent years and now stands at roughly 7 telephones per 100 persons; mobile-cellular teledensity now exceeds 100 telephones per 100 persons. When traveling to Botswana you can take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Botswana 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.
Botswana has 2,674 internet hosts and 120,000 internet users. There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes. Internet speed can sometimes be slow. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
