Liberia Travel Adapter Kit | Going In Style
Liberia adaptor kit has the adapters you will need for traveling to Liberia.
Deluxe Adapter Kit: Includes four adapters and ships Priority Mail with tracking.
Standard Adapter Kit: Includes two grounded adapters.
Basic Adapter Kit: Includes two non-grounded adapters.
These adapters allow you to plug your US appliances into Liberia wall outlets. Depending on what appliance you are bringing you may need a converter when traveling to Africa.
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. Check to make sure your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor and other appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip. Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.
Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

Why do I need a North American adapter?
Even though Liberia uses North American sockets, the sockets are not required to be polarized. Since devices such as laptops have a polarized plug with one prong wider than the other, you will still need an adapter to use your plug in Liberia.
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.
Liberia operates on 120-230 volt electricity and is generated at 50-60Hz (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.
The Liberia is located in Western Africa, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, between Cote d'Ivoire and Sierra Leone. The area is slightly larger than Tennessee. The climate is tropical; hot, humid; dry winters with hot days and cool to cold nights; wet, cloudy summers with frequent heavy showers.
Currency in Liberia is the Liberian Dollar (LRD). Credit cards are generally not accepted and most establishments only accept cash. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, but travelers’ cheques are generally not accepted.
Liberia’s limited telephone services available are found almost exclusively in the capital Monrovia; fixed-line service stagnant and extremely limited; telephone coverage extended to a number of other towns and rural areas by four mobile-cellular network operators. Mobile-cellular subscription base growing and teledensity reached 40 per 100 persons in 2010. When travelling to Liberia, some you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Liberia 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.
Liberia has 7 internet hosts and 20,000 internet users. Internet is available in internet cafes in Monrovia and some hotels offer internet. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
