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

The country of Sudan is located in the northern part of the continent of Africa.  The Deluxe Sudan Adapter Kit comes with a total of six adapter plugs including non grounded and grounded plugs.  If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or non grounded plug, watch Going In Style's video on adapters.

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.

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.

Sudan operates on 240 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 Sudan

Geography

The Sudan is located in north-eastern Africa, bordering the Red Sea, between Egypt and Eritrea. The area is slightly less than one-fifth the size of the US. The climate is hot and dry; arid desert; rainy season varies by region (April to November).

Currency

Currency in Sudan is the Sudanese Pound (SDG). Credit cards may not be accepted; it is best to bring cash. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Sudan has a well-equipped system by regional standards and is being upgraded; cellular communications started in 1996 and have expanded substantially with wide coverage of most major cities. Sudan’s telephone system consists of microwave radio relay, cable, fiber optic, radiotelephone communications, tropospheric scatter, and a domestic satellite system with 14 earth stations.

When travelling to Sudan you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Sudan 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.

Sudan has 90 internet hosts and 4.2 million internet users. Internet is available in internet cafes and in some hotels in large towns. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
