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

Brazil is located in Eastern South America and the city Rio de Janiero is one of the most popular travel destinations in South America.

Brazil Complete Adapter Plug Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to all parts of the beautiful country of Brazil including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Salvador, and Curitiba. The Deluxe Brazil kit includes both grounded and non grounded plugs and ships priority mail with tracking. The Brazil adapter plug allows you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Brazil wall outlets.

The Standard Brazil Adapter Kit comes with grounded plugs.  The Basic Brazil Adapter Kit comes with non grounded plugs.  If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or non grounded plug for your trip, watch Going In Style's Adapter Video.

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. If your hair dryer, curling iron, hair straightener, or electric razor is not dual voltage, you will likely need a voltage converter.

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

Travel Power Strip with Surge Protection and USB Ports

Travel Power Strip with Surge Protection and USB Ports

Travel power strip is dual voltage and has complete 3 line surge protection. Plug in your United States / North America appliance plugs into the three AC outlets. Foreign electricity can have unexpected power surges and voltage spikes that can damage expensive electronics and appliances. If you are traveling with a laptop you will want to make a safe connection and surge protection is recommended. 

When you get to destination country you can plug your travel power strip into the countries wall sockets with the grounded adapter plug included in the Standard Plus Kit. Travel Power Surge Strip allows you to plug in three United States devices and two USB ports simultaneously. That means you can power your laptop while charging your cell phone and camera battery pack. Additionally the power strip has two 5V DC USB outlets with auto cut off auto reset overload protection so you can charge your cell ipad via the USB port and safe the AC outlets for other electronics. 

Travel Dual Voltage Power Strip with Surge Protection has a North America US plug, however you can plug it into any wall outlet world wide with the correct earthed adapter. Standard Plus kit not only includes the power strip but also the grounded adapter needed to plug your power strip into foreign countries wall sockets. Travel power strip with surge protection is dual voltage and will work world wide. However, this power strip DOES NOT convert voltage so your appliance will need to be dual voltage or a converter is required.

Compact design and space-saving cord management system make it easy to take with you on all your trips.  Use the Power Surge Strip to keep electronic devices charged and ready to go at all times. Already have an adapter plug for your destination country? Shop for just the travel power strip.

**IMPORTANT: The Travel Power Strip DOES NOT convert voltage. Your AC devices MUST be rated 100-240, 110/220 or 120/240VAC to use them on foreign 220-240VAC electrical systems.

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 dua l/ multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.

Electrical Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Brazil operates on 110 - 220 volt electricity and is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current.  To use your US appliance when traveling overseas you need to convert the foreign 220 volt electricity to match the voltage requirements of your 110- 120 volt appliance.  Failure to do so could severely damage or destroy your appliance.  

Be sure to check each individual appliance to see if it is dual voltage.  You can watch Going In Style's video on how to check to see if your appliance is dual voltage.

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.

Be sure to check each individual appliance to see if it is dual voltage.  You can watch Going In Style's video on how to check to see if your appliance is dual voltage.

Computers and Apple Products

If you are traveling overseas with a Lenovo, Asus, Toshiba, HP 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.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Brazil 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 Brazil.
