Burundi is located in Central Africa and uses the same type of adapter that is used in Continental Europe. The Burundi adapters will allow you to plug in your US appliances into Burundi wall outlets no matter what city in Burundi you will be traveling to, such as Bururi, Gitega, Kirundo, Muramvya and Rugari.A non grounded adapter allows you to plug in your two prong plug, such as a cell phone charger and a grounded adapter allows you to plug in your three prong plug, such as a laptop plug. If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or non grounded plug for your trip to Burundi, you can watch Going In Style's video on travel adapters. The Deluxe Burundi Adapter Kit includes two adapter plugs, a grounded and a non grounded plug, and ships Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your adapter in time for your trip. 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.

Grounded Adapter Plug also called Earthed Adapters
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 also called Non-Earthed Adapters 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. Burrundi 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.
