The Standard Brazil Adapter Kit comes with grounded plugs. The Basic Brazil Adapter Kit comes with non grounded plugs. If you are not sure whether you will need a grounded or non grounded plug for your trip, watch Going In Style's Adapter Video.
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. If your hair dryer, curling iron, hair straightener, or electric razor is not dual voltage, you will likely need a voltage converter.
Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded 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 dua l/ multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.
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.
