Namibia is a country located in Africa.  When traveling to Namibia it is important to take along the correct adapter plug. Buy Namibia adapter plugs before your departure.

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. To learn more about dual voltage watch Going In Style's How to Tell if Your Appliance is Dual Voltage Video.

 Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter. To learn more about grounded and ungrounded plugs watch Going In Style's Adapter Plug Video.

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.

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.

Namibia 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.

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.


About Namibia

Geography

The Namibia is located Southern Africa, bordering the South Atlantic Ocean, between Angola and South Africa. The area is slightly more than half the size of Alaska. The climate is desert; hot, dry; rainfall sparse and erratic.

Currency

Currency in Namibia is the Namibian Dollar (NAD). Credit cards are generally accepted at establishments everywhere, but there are some places that only accept cash. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Namibia has a fair good telephone system; core fiber-optic network links most centers and connections are now digital. There are multiple mobile-cellular providers with a combined subscribership of more than 70 telephones per 100 persons; combined fixed-line and mobile-cellular teledensity about 80 per 100 persons. When travelling to Namibia you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Namibia SIM card or purchase a phone when you arrive. You can also contact your mobile service provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone if you decide to bring your own 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.

Namibia has 77,948 internet hosts and 127,500 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes and at many hostels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
