Azores is located of the coast of Morocco in the North Atlantic Ocean. Azores uses a couple of different type of travel adapter plugs. When traveling any foreign country, it is important to take along the correct adapter plug for your destination country.

When you purchase the Deluxe Azores Adapter Plug Kit your package ships Priority Mail with tracking. The Deluxe Azores Kit includes both grounded and non-grounded plugs.

Standard Azores Adapter Kit includes two grounded plugs. Basic Azores Adapter Travel Kit includes only 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. 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. Buy your adapters online before you leave for Azores as a may be difficult to find an adapter to convert your US appliance plugs once you arrive in Azores.

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. - Also called earthed adapters.

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. - Also called non-earthed adaptres.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Azores 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, 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. You iPad, iPhone, and iPod are all dual voltage and you will not need a converter.  However, you will still need an adapter plug to charge your iPad or apple device while traveling to Europe.  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.
