Asia is the biggest continent in the world and is a very popular travel destination. Asia has some of the most beautiful and culturally rich countries in the world. From the cherry blossoms of Japan, to the Great Wall of China, to the Taj Mahal in India, these Asian sites are sure to inspire any traveler. When touring across Asia you will want to be sure to take along the correct adapter for each country. Universal Adapter Plugs are convenient, yet not as durable as individual adapter plugs. Furthermore, universal adapters do not adapt to every country, such as India's three large, round pin, adapter plug. These individual adapter plugs are long-lasting, reliable and are made for connections up to 240 volts.
The Deluxe Travel Adapter Plug Set for the continent of Asia has a total of nine adapters and includes both grounded and non grounded adapter plugs to cover all of your bases. The Deluxe Kit also ships Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your adapters to you in time for your trip. Buy Asia Travel Adapters before you depart on your trip.
The Standard Continental Asia Travel Adaptor Plug Kit comes with a total of five grounded adapter plugs so you can plug your three-prong, grounded appliances into wall outlets throughout Asia.
The Basic Travel Asia Adapter Plug Kit comes with four non-grounded adapter plugs to plug in your non-grounded appliances when traveling through the continent of Asia. If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or a nongrounded adapter plug, you can watch Going In Style's Adapter Plug Video featuring Grounded and Non Grounded 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. 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 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.
Many countries in the Asia 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, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.
Japan operates on 100 volt electricity and requires a step up converter.
Check your appliances to make sure that your applainces are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.
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.
Asia is the world's largest continent. The continent of Asia is located in the Eastern Hemisphere.
Each country in Asia has its own currency. Currency in China is the Renminbi Yuan (CNY). In the country of Bangladesh the currency is the Taka (BDT). India's currency is the Ruppe (INR). Be sure to check with your credit card and bank before you travel.
When traveling to Asia you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone. Contact your mobile provider one week before you leave for your trip. Your mobile provider may need to unlock your cell phone. When you get to your destination country, you can purchase a prepaid SIM card. Usually you can purchase these at the airport. 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.
