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

The Cayman Islands are located in the Caribbean and use the same type of adapter as used in North America. The Deluxe Cayman Islands Adapter Plug Kit includes both grounded and 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. 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.

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

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.

Cayman Islands operate on 120 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.

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.


About Cayman Islands

Geography

The Cayman Islands is a group of Caribbean, three-island group (Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, Little Cayman) in Caribbean Sea, 240 km south of Cuba and 268 km northwest of Jamaica. The area is 1.5 times the size of Washington, DC. The climate tropical marine; warm, rainy summers (May to October) and cool, relatively dry winters (November to April). The terrain low-lying limestone base surrounded by coral reefs.

Currency

Currency is the Cayman Islands Dollar (KYD). Credit cards are generally accepted. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged at banks and at the airport. Many establishments will accept travelers’ cheques.

Staying Connected

The Cayman Islands have a reasonably good overall telephone system with a high fixed-line teledensity. Liberalization of telecom market in 2003 introduced competition in the mobile-cellular market in 2004. When traveling to Cayman Islands you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Cayman Islands 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.

The Cayman Islands has 23,079 internet hosts and 23,000 internet users. Internet is widely available at hotels and internet cafes. Often you can find a Wi-Fi connection. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
