America adapter plug converts US, European, China and Australia appliances to be used in the US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica and the Caribbean.

Bonaire is located in the Caribbean and uses North America type adapter plugs that are used in Canada, United States and Mexico.  These Bonaire Adapter Plugs are compatible with American and European plugs and converts these to the Bonaire style electrical plug.

The Deluxe Bonaire Adapter Plug Set comes with two adapter plugs, one grounded and one non grounded plug.  Going In Style's Deluxe Adapter Kits always ship Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your adapter to you in time for your trip.

The Standard Bonaire Adapter comes with a grounded plug and the Basix Bonaire Adapter Kit comes with a non-grounded plug.

These adaptor plugs enable your appliance's plug configuration to fit into Bonaire electrical power outlets. 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. Grounded adapter plugs maintain the ground from the electrical outlet to your appliance.

Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though a country uses North American sockets, the sockets are not required to be polarized. Since devices such as laptops have a polarized plug with one prong wider than the other, you may still need an adapter to use your plug in this country.

Grounded Adapter Plugs | Earthed Adapters

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 | Non Earthed Adapters

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.

Bonaire operates on 110 volt electricity and is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. Many foreign countries operate on 50Hz. 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. 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.
