Sweden Travel Adapter Kit Kit is compatible with American and European two-pronged and three-pronged plugs and converts these to the Sweden style electrical plug.
Sweden travel adapter kit has the adapters you need for traveling to all parts of the European country of Sweden. If you are traveling with a laptop that has a three-pronged, grounded plug, you will need a grounded adaptor for your laptop. If you are traveling with appliances that are not dual voltage you may also need to take a converter with you on 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. 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 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. Grounded adapters are also called earthed adapter plugs.
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. Non Grounded adapters are also called non earthed adapter plugs.
Check your appliances to make sure that they are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Sweden operates on 230 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 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.

Sweden is located Northern Europe, bordering the Baltic Sea, Gulf of Bothnia, Kattegat, and Skagerrak, between Finland and Norway. Its area is slightly larger than California. Its climate is temperate in south with cold, cloudy winters and cool, partly cloudy summers; subarctic in north. The terrain is mostly flat or gently rolling lowlands; mountains in west.
Currency in Sweden is the Swedish Krona (SEK). Credit cards and travelers’ cheques are widely accepted throughout Sweden, however smaller establishments might only accept cash. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged in banks and airports.
Sweden has a highly developed telecommunications infrastructure; ranked among leading countries for fixed-line, mobile-cellular, internet and broadband penetration with coaxial and multi-conductor cables carry most of the voice traffic. When traveling to Sweden you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Sweden 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.
Sweden has 5.727 million internet hosts and over 8.398 million internet users. High speed internet is available at internet cafes in large cities and at most hotels. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
