How to tell the difference between a grounded and a non-grounded plug. 

Ghana is located in Western Africa.  The Deluxe Ghana Adapter Plug Kit includes both grounded and non-grounded adapters. If you are traveling to Ghana with US appliances or electronics you will need to purchase Ghana adapter plugs.

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. Going In Style Ghana Adapter

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 adapter plugs for use with your voltage converter, transformer, or dual/multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.

An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter).

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Ghana 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 Ghana

Geography

The Ghana is located in Western Africa, bordering the Gulf of Guinea, between Cote d'Ivoire and Togo. The area is slightly smaller than Oregon. The climate is tropical; warm and comparatively dry along southeast coast; hot and humid in southwest; hot and dry in north. The terrain is mostly low plains with dissected plateau in south-central area.

Currency

Currency in Japan is the Japanese Yen (JPY). Credit cards are widely at hotels, restaurants and shops. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Japan.

Staying Connected

Ghana’s telephone system is outdated and is primarily microwave radio relay; wireless local loop has been installed; outdated and unreliable fixed-line infrastructure heavily concentrated in Accra. Competition among multiple mobile-cellular providers has spurred growth with a subscribership of more than 70 per 100 persons and rising. When traveling to Ghana, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Ghana 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.
