Deluxe Tibet kit comes with four adapter plugs and ships priority mail with tracking. Tibet adapter plugs allow you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Tibet wall outlets.  

Tibet Adaptor plugs allows US, North America, China, Australia and Mexico appliance plugs to adapt to be used in Tibet.

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. If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters

Purchase adapter plugs online before you leave for your trip because it may be difficult to find adapters and converters to convert US plugs to fit into Tibet wall outlets once you arrive at your destination.

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.

Tibet 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, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba 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.

Tibet is located in East Asia, east of the Himalayan Mountains. Tibet’s climate consists of a dry season and a wet season. Generally days are hot to warm and nights are cool to cold. Mt. Everest is partially located in Tibet. It is the highest mountain in the world

Currency

Currency in Tibet is the Renminbi Yuan (CNY). Credit cards are only accepted at high end establishments.

Staying Connected

When traveling to Tibet you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Tibet 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 if you are brining your phone from the US. 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.

Internet access is available at some hotels and internet cafes and hotels. Wi-Fi is becoming more commonly available. When travelling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
