Grounded and Non-Grounded Plugs

Samoa is located in Oceania and uses the same type of adapter as Australia. When traveling to Oceania it is important to take along the correct adapter plug for your destination country.  The Deluxe Samoa Adapter Plug Kit includes both grounded and non grounded plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking.

These adaptor plugs enable your appliance's plug configuration to fit into Oceania 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.

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.

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.

An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter).

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Samoa 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, 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.

Currency in Samoa is the Tala or Samoa Dollar (WST). Credit cards are only accepted at major establishments. Most establishments only accept cash. Foreign currency and travelers cheques can be exchanged at banks.

Staying Connected

Samoa has an adequate telephone system. The combined fixed-line and mobile-cellular teledensity is roughly 100 telephones per 100 persons. When travelling to Samoa you can take an analog phone and purchase a plan through the local mobile service provider. You will need an adapter to charge your phone if you decide to bring your own 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.

Samoa has 18,074 internet hosts and 9,000 internet users. Internet is available at internet cafes. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
