Taiwan is located in Eastern Asia off the Southeastern coast of China.  Taiwan has the same electrical outlets as the United States and uses the same 110 volt electricity and 60 Cycle electrical current.  If you are traveling to Taiwan from the United States or Canada you probably will not need an adapter or a converter for your trip.  If you are traveling to Taiwan from China, Europe or Australia, then you will need an adapter and a converter.

Taiwan Complete Adapter Plug Kit has all the adapters you will need for traveling to all parts of the delightful country of Taiwan including Kaohsiung, Taipei, and Changhua City. The Deluxe kit ships priority mail with tracking. The Taiwan adapter plug allows you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into Taiwan wall outlets.

If you will be traveling to Taiwan's neighboring country China you will most likely need to take an adapter and possibly a converter.  Furthermore, if you are traveling to nearby country Hong Kong you will need to take an adapter and possibly a converter.

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. Check to make sure your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor and other appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip.  Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter.

Why do I need a North American adapter?

Even though Taiwan 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 may still need an adapter to use your plug in Taiwan.  If you are staying in a nice hotel that caters to international visitors, the outlets will be polarized and you will not need an adapter.

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.

When traveling with appliances it is important to know whether your appliance is dual voltage. If it is not dual voltage you will need either a converter or a transformer when traveling.&
Taiwan operates on 110 volt electricity and is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. Many foreign countries operate on 50Hz. This difference in cycles may cause the motor in your 60Hz United States appliance to operate slightly slower when used on 50Hz foreign electricity.  If you are traveling to Taiwan, there is no difference in cycles and you will most likely be able to operate all of your appliances normally. Most modern electronic equipment including battery chargers, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba 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.

Converter- Changing Current Voltage

Going in Style adapters allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. Adapter plugs DO NOT convert voltage and only change the configuration of the pins. When voltage conversion is needed, use an electricity converter. An electricity converter changes the voltage input into your appliance. The United States electrical appliances operate on a lower current of 110-120 volts AC (Alternating Current). Most of the world operates on 220-240 volts AC. Therefore converter units enable your electronic and non-electronic appliances to run on foreign electricity (220-240 volts) to match the voltage requirements of your 110-120 volt device. Failure to run your appliance with a converter could damage your appliance.  When traveling from the US to Taiwan you will probably not need a converter.  Your appliances should be able to operate normally since Taiwan uses the same 110 volt of electriciy as the United States.
