ELECTRIC AND TELEPHONE

OUTLETS & ADAPTER PLUGS AROUND THE WORLD

Electric wall outlets around the world vary in shape and arrangement of the plug holes (examples of Outlets and plugs shown to the right). The most common outlets use two (or three) round pins (common in Continental Europe), and all tourist voltage converters / transformers have this two pin plug installed.

Outlet shapes vary in different countries, and some countries may have more than one type of outlet. Some European countries have outlets that are "recessed" and require an additional round pin adapter plug (#B shown below).

Many Adapter plugs come with two prongs (no ground). Grounded appliances (the plug on the end of the cord has a third prong) require a Grounded Adapter Plug.

ADAPTER PLUGS CHANGE ONLY THE SHAPE OF THE PLUG - THEY DO NOT CHANGE THE ELECTRIC CURRENT, for that you need a Converter or Transformer, depending on your appliances. In many instances, you will need a Converter / Transformer to change the electricity, and one or more adapter plugs in order to fit the wall sockets in the countries you are visiting.

POLARIZED PLUGS

In North America many ungrounded appliances are required to have plugs with one blade wider than the other, called a "polarized plug" because it can be into the outlet only one way.

All Converters, Transorfmers, and Adapter Plugs shown will accomodate polarized plugs.

NOTE: You may find some 110 volt countries (parts of Central America, Japan, Mexice, etc) that use the North American style plug without polarized outlets. The "A" adapter plug will enable you to plug Polarized Plug Appliances into these outlets

GROUNDED APPLIANCES

If your appliance has a three prong grounded plug, you will need a grounded Adapter Plug, or a grounded Transformer. Grounded Adapter Plugs, and Transformers are listed separately in our Shopping Area.

Grounded Adapter Plugs

COMPUTER & PHONE CONNECTIONS

If you are traveling overseas with a laptop or desktop computer 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. Most desktops are dual voltage and can be switched to operate on either 110-120 or 220-240 volts.

That's right! Most computers do not require a voltage coverter. DOUBLE CHECK THE MANUAL THAT CAME WITH YOUR COMPUTER TO MAKE SURE!

You will, however, need to make safe connections to foreign power and telephone systems.

Analog vs Digital Telephone Systems CAUTION;

Most computer modems are designed to work only with analog phone systems. Many hotels and businesses use digital phone systems. These digital systems can damage your modem. Before connecting to a new phone system, determine if the system is analog or digital by inquiringat the front desk or by using a "modem saver", a small electronic testing device that can identify digital phone systems.
