Grounded and Non Grounded Adaptors

Paraguay is located in South America bordering Brazil. Paraguay uses a two, round, pin style of adapter plug that is also used in Continental Europe.  When traveling to South America it is important to take along the correct adapter for your destination country.

Paraguay Adaptor Kit allows you to use your North America appliances, such as hair dryers, electric razors, and curling irons, in the South America country of Paraguay. Some laptops have a three prong plug and will require a grounded adaptor plug.

The Deluxe Paraguay Adapter Plug Travel Kit comes with both grounded and non grounded adapters.  The Standard Paraguay Adapter Plug Kit comes with a grounded adapter.  The Basic Paraguay Adapter Kit comes with a non grounded adapter.

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.

Paraguay 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.

Staying Connected

Paraguay’s fixed-line market is a state monopoly and fixed-line telephone service is meager. There are many deficiencies in provision of fixed-line service have resulted in a rapid expansion of mobile-cellular services fostered by competition among multiple providers. When travelling to Paraguay you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone and purchase a Paraguay 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.

Paraguay has 278,473 internet hosts and over 1.105 million internet users. Internet access is available in internet café and hotels in urban areas. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
