The Canary Islands are a group of islands located east of Morocco. These Canary Island adapters allow your US appliances to fit into Canary Island wall outlets. The Deluxe Canary Island Adaptor Set comes with a total of two adapters, one grounded and one non grounded. If you are not certain whether you will need a grounded or a non grounded adapter for your trip to the Canary Islands, 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.

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. Grounded adapters are also called earthed adapter plugs.
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.A non-ground adapter is also called a non-earthed plug.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Canary Islands operate 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.
Your iPad and iPhone are dual voltage and will not need a converter. You can bring your regular iPad charger and an adapter plug for your destination country. Use your adapter plug to charge your iPad, iPhone or iPod as normal.
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.
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.
