Bhutan is located in Southern Asia between China and India. When traveling to the Asian country of Bhutan it is important to take along the correct adapter plug for your trip. The Going In Style Deluxe Bhutan adapter plugs comes with all the adapters you will need for Bhutan. The Deluxe Bhutan Kit comes with a total of six adapter plugs and includes both grounded and nongrounded plugs. The Standard Going In Style Bhutan Adapter Kit comes with three grounded plugs. The Basic Going In Style Bhutan Adapter Set comes with three 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. 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.

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 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.
Watch our video on grounded vs non-grounded adapters.
You may still need a converter when you travel depending on what appliances you are bringing. Check to see if you appliance is 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.

Bhutan is located in Southern Asia, between China and India. Its area is about one-half the size of Indiana. Its climate varies; tropical in southern plains; cool winters and hot summers in central valleys; severe winters and cool summers in Himalayas. The terrain is mostly mountainous with some fertile valleys and savanna.
Currency in Bhutan is the Ngultrum (BTN). Credit cards are generally not accepted and it is best to carry cash. Foreign money and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks throughout Bhutan.
Bhutan’s urban towns and district headquarters have telecommunications services. Low teledensity; domestic service is poor especially in rural areas; mobile-cellular service available since 2003. When traveling to Bhutan you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Bhutan 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.
Bhutan has over 14,714 internet hosts and over 50,000 internet users. There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes in major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
