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.
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.

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.
