Grounded and Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs - What will you need for Chile?

Chile is located in South America bordering Argentina.  Chile uses a couple of different style of adapter plugs.

Chile Complete Adapter Plug Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to all parts of the beautiful country of Chile including Santiago, San Bernardo, and Temuco.  The Deluxe Chile Adapter kit includes both grounded and non grounded plugs and ships priority mail with tracking. The Chile adapter plug allows you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Chile wall 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. 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.

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.

Chile 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, 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.

Geography

Chile is located in Eastern Northern Southern South America, bordering the South Pacific Ocean, between Argentina and Peru and its area is twice the size of Montana. Its climate is temperate; desert in north; Mediterranean in central region; cool and damp in south. The terrain is low coastal mountains; fertile central valley; rugged Andes in east. Chile is the longest north-south trending country in the world Atacama Desert and Chile has the driest desert in the world. The desert spreads across the northern part of the country. Natural resources in Chile include copper and precious metals.

Currency

Currency in Chile is the Canadian Chilean Peso (CLP). Credit cards are generally accepted everywhere. Foreign money can be exchanged at banks and street exchanges throughout Chile. It is difficult to exchange travelers cheques in Chile.

Staying Connected

Chile’s telephone system privatization began in 1988 and is the most advanced telecommunications infrastructure in South America. It is a modern system based on extensive microwave radio relay facilities; domestic satellite system with 3 earth stations. Cell phone coverage is excellent. When travelling to Chile you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Chile 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.

Chile has over 1.854 million internet hosts and over 7.009 million internet users. There is internet access in hotels, internet cafes, and hostels throughout the country. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
