Grounded and Non Grounded

Cameroon is located in Central Africa and uses multiple adapters for their wall outlets.  The two round pin adapter is the same adapter used in Continental Europe. No matter what part of the country you will be staying in, these adaptors allow you to plug in your US hair dryer, curling iron and electric razor. To use your appliances you may need a converter. The Deluxe Cameroon Adaptor Set comes with four adapters including two grounded adapters and two non grounded adapters.  The Deluxe Kit also ships Priority Mail with tracking so that you will be sure to get your adapters in time for your trip.  If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or non grounded adaptor, you can watch Going In Style's Adapter Video.

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. Purchase adapter plugs for Cameroon before you leave for your trip so you can charge your cell phone and power your laptop as soon as you arrive at your destination.

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 adapter plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin.

Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs

Going In Style offers non-grounded (also called ungrounded) 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.

Cameroon 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. 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 Cameroon

Geography

Cameroon is located in Central Africa, bordering the Bight of Biafra, between Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria. The area is slightly larger than California. The climate varies with terrain, from tropical along coast to semiarid and hot in north. The terrain is diverse, with coastal plain in southwest, dissected plateau in center, mountains in west, and plains in north. Cameroon is sometimes referred to as the hinge of Africa; throughout the country there are areas of thermal springs and indications of current or prior volcanic activity; Mount Cameroon, the highest mountain in Sub-Saharan west Africa, is an active volcano..

Currency

Currency is the Franc. Credit cards are generally not accepted, but some hotels and airlines will accept credit card. ATMs are difficult to find and banks will not accept credit or debit cards for cash advances. Foreign currency and sometimes travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks .

Staying Connected

Cameroon’s telephone system includes cable, microwave radio relay, and tropospheric scatter; Camtel, the monopoly provider of fixed-line service, provides connections for only about 2 per 100 persons; equipment is old and outdated, and connections with many parts of the country are unreliable. Mobile-cellular usage, in part a reflection of the poor condition and general inadequacy of the fixed-line network, has increased sharply, reaching a subscribership base of 40 per 100 persons. When travelling to Cameroon you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Cameroon 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.

Cameroon has 9,553 internet hosts and over 749,600 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes and at hotels in major cities. Internet tends to be expensive and slow. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
