Grounded and Non Grounded Adaptor Plugs

Suriname is located in the Northern part of South America and borders the ocean.  Suriname is a beautiful travel destination that uses the same type of adapters as many other South America countries. The Deluxe Suriname Adapter Plug Kit comes with four adapters and includes both grounded and non grounded plugs.

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.

Some of Suriname's adapters have two flat pins that fit into Suriname and US outlets.  Outlet sockets in Suriname are not required to be polarized, whereas US appliance have polarized plugs.  In order for US appliances to fit into Suriname outlets a polarize adapter may be needed. If you decide not to take the US style, two flat pin adaptor, make sure you do bring with you the two round pin adaptor plug in case you encounter this type of wall outlet.

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 adapter 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.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Suriname 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 Suriname.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.

Suriname operates on 110-220 volt electricity and is generated at 50-60Hz (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.

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

When travelling to Suriname you can take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Suriname SIM card or purchase a phone when you arrive. You can also contact your mobile service provider to set up an international calling plan. You will need an adapter to charge your phone if you decide to bring your own 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.
