How to tell the difference between a grounded and a non-grounded plug

Argentina is located in the Southern part of South America and uses a unique grounded adapter that is also used in Russia.

Deluxe Going In Style Argentina Travel Adapter Plug Kit comes with a total of four adapter plugs and includes both grounded and non-grounded adapter plugs. All Going In Style Deluxe Adapter Kits ship Priority Mail with tracking.

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.

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

If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters.

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.

Argentina operates on 220 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.

Check your electrics, such as blow dryers, curling irons and electric razors, to see if your appliances are dual voltage.

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.  Your iPad and iPhone are dual voltage and will not need a converter, however you will need an adapter plug to plug your iPad charger into Argentina wall outlets. 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 Argentina

Staying Connected

Argentina has a modern telephone system with fast, fiber optic cable lines installed between all major cities. Major telephone networks are digital. You can make calls at phone centers known as locutorious where you will have your own phone booth and you pay for your call at the end. You will need to have an unlocked cell phone with an Andorra SIM card to make mobile calls, but make sure your phone is tri-band. You can also contact your cell phone service provider and add international roaming to your plan. You will need an adapter to charge your cell 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 country code for Argentina is +54.
