Afghanistan is located in Southern Asia and uses a two round pin, non grounded, adapter plug that is used in many parts of Continental Europe and other Middle Eastern Countries. These adapters are compatible with American or European two-pronged and three-pronged plugs and converts these to the Afghanistan style electrical plug, so you can use your North American appliances in the country of Afghanistan.
The Deluxe Afghanistan Adapter Plug Set comes with a total of four adapter plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your adapters to you in time for your trip. The Deluxe Afghanistan Adapter Kit includes both grounded and non grounded adapter plugs. If you only need grounded adapter plugs you can purchase the Standard Afghanistan Adapter Plug Kit which comes with two grounded adapter plugs for Afghanistan. The Basic Afghanistan Adapter Plug set comes with two non grounded adapter plugs. If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or a non grounded adapter plug for your trip to Afghanistan, watch Going In Style's Adapter Plug Video. This video will show you the difference between grounded and non grounded adapter 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. Using the wrong wattage can damage the appliance.
Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

Going In Style Grounded and Non Grounded Adapter Plug Travel Video
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.
Afghanistan 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.
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.
