This grounded adaptor plug enables your appliance's plug configuration to fit into Andora electrical power outlets.
Grounded adapter plugs allow electrical connections from 100 volts to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter) unless your appliance is dual voltage. Grounded adapter plugs maintain the ground from the electrical outlet to your appliance.
Our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Andorra 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.
