Grounded and Non-Grounded Plugs

Bolivia is located in South America bordering Brazil.  Bolivia uses a couple of different types of travel adapters.  Going In Style Deluxe Bolivia Adapter Plug Kit comes with four adapter plugs and includes both the grounded and non-grounded style of plugs.  The Going In Style Deluxe Adapter Kit always ships Priority Mail with tracking.

The Going In Style Standard Bolivia Adapter Plug Kit comes with three grounded plugs.  The Going In Style Basic Bolivia Adapter Kit comes with three non-grounded plugs.

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

Going In Style Bolivia Adapter Model GIS-BOL-A-B-GUA-GUR

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.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Bolivia 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 Bolivia.

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.

Bolivia operates on 110- 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. 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.
