Congo is located in Central Africa. These adapters allow you to plug your US appliances and electrics into Congo wall outlets. Depending on what appliances you are bringing, you may need a converter when traveling to Africa.



The Going In Style Deluxe Democratic Republic of Congo Adapter Plug Kit comes with a total of four adapter plugs.  The Deluxe adapter kit includes both grounded and non-grounded plugs for traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Going In Style Standard Adapter Plug Kit comes with two grounded plugs.  The Going In Style Basic Adapter Kit comes with two 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.  If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters.

Grounded Adapter Plugs ( Earthed 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 ( Non-Earthed 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.

Congo, Democratic Republic of the 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, computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.

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 Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Asus, laptop or Apple device such as an iPad, chances are you won’t need a voltage converter.   You will not need a converter for your iPad or iPhone since these are dual voltage.  You will need to buy an adapter plug to charge your iPad or iPhone when traveling to Africa.  Most apple products, such as your iPad, has a two prong plug for the charger and a non-grounded plug will work for a non-grounded, two prong plug.  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.
