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

Kuwait is located in the Middle East bordering the Persian Gulf.  When traveling overseas to Kuwait it is important to bring along the correct adapter plug for your trip.

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. This adapter 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 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.

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.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Kuwait 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, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

Kuwait is located in Middle East, bordering the Persian Gulf, between Iraq and Saudi Arabia and its area is slightly smaller than New Jersey. The climate is dry desert; intensely hot summers; short, cool winters. The terrain is flat to slightly undulating desert plain.

Currency

Currency in Kuwait is the Kuwait Dinar (KWD). Credit cards are widely at hotels, restaurants and shops. Smaller shops only accept cash. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Kuwait’s quality of telephone service is excellent. New telephone exchanges provide a large capacity for new subscribers; trunk traffic is carried by microwave radio relay, coaxial cable, and open-wire and fiber-optic cable; a mobile-cellular telephone system operates throughout Kuwait, and the country is well supplied with pay telephones. When travelling to Kuwait you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Kuwait 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.

Kuwait has 2,730 internet hosts and over 1.1 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet cafes and at some hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
