This grounded GUB adapter plug enables your appliance's plug configuration to fit into Angola electrical power outlets.
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 adapter plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin. Grounded adapter plugs allow electrical connections from 100 volts to 240 volts.
If you think you will also need the non-grounded adapter plug B, you can find the Complete Angola Adapter Kit on our website.
An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter).

Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Angola 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.
Angola is located in Southern Africa and its area is twice the size of Texas. The climate is semiarid in the south and along the coast to Luanda. The north is cool and dry from May to October and hot and rainy from November to April. The terrain is mostly coastal plains.
Angola has a limited telephone system. State-owned telecom had a monopoly for fixed-lines until 2005. Mobile-cellular service providers began operations in 2001. Cell phone coverage is limited to major cities. When travelling to Angola you will want to take an international or unlocked cell phone with a prepaid Angola SIM card. You will need an adapter to charge your phone. Most cell phone battery rechargers should be multi-voltage, therefore will not require a converter. If the charger says 100-240 volts, 50-60 cycles then your charger in multi-voltage.
There is internet access in hotels and internet cafes in major cities. However, access outside major cities is limited. When traveling with your laptop or iPad you will need an adapter to charge your device.
