Bali is located of the coast of Indonesia and uses the same type of, two round pin, adatper plug as used in many countries in Continental Europe. You may still need a converter when traveling to any Asia country depending on what appliances you will be bringing.
The Deluxe Going In Style Bali Adapter Plug Travel Kit comes with two adapter plugs and includes both a grounded and a non-grounded plug.
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.
Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.

Going In Style Adapters Feature:
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. A grounded plug is also called an earthed adapter plug.
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. A non-grounded plug is also called a non-earthed adapter plug.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Bali 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.
Be sure to check each individual appliance to see if it is dual voltage. You can watch Going In Style's video on how to check to see if your appliance is dual voltage.
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.
To charge your iPad, iPhone or laptop, bring your usual power cord charger and the correct adapter plug for your destination country. Plug your power cord into the wall using the adapter and power your iPad as usual. Your iPad, iPhone and iPod are dual voltage and you will not 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.
