Tahiti is a popular travel destination located in the South Pacific Ocean in the region of Oceania. Tahiti uses a couple of different type of adapter plugs. Buy adapters for traveling to Tahiti before your departure.
Deluxe Tahiti Adapter Plug Kit includes both grounded and non grounded adapters and ships Priority Mail with tracking. Standard Tahiti Adapter Kit comes with grounded adapters. Basic Tahiti Adapter Plug Kit includes non grounded adapters for your trip to Tahiti.
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.
Why do I need a North American adapter?
Even though Tahiti 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 will still need an adapter to use your plug in Tahiti.

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.
Tahiti operates on 127-220 volt electricity and is generated at 50-60Hz (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 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.

Tahiti is located in Oceania in the South Pacific Ocean about half way between South America and Australia. Its climate is tropical, but moderate. The terrain is mixture of rugged high islands and low islands with reefs.
Currency in Tahiti is the French Pacific Franc (XPF). Credit cards and travelers’ cheques are widely accepted throughout Tahiti, however smaller establishments might only accept cash. Foreign currency and travelers’ cheques can be exchanged in banks and some hotels.
Tahiti has a combined fixed and mobile-cellular density of roughly 90 per 100 persons. International calls can be expensive. When travelling to Tahiti you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Tahiti 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.
Tahiti has 37,360 internet hosts and over 120,000 internet users. Internet is available at some hotels and there are a few internet cafes located in major cities. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
