Iraq adapter kit allows you to plug your US appliances into Iraq wall outlets. Buy Iraq adapters before you leave to Iraq so you can charge your smart phone and other electronics as soon as your arrive at your destination.
Deluxe Adapter Kit: Includes six adapters and ships Priority Mail with tracking.
Standard Adapter Kit: Includes three grounded adapters.
Basic Adapter Kit: Includes three non-grounded adapters.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.
The Deluxe Iraq Adapter Plug Set comes with a total of six adapter plugs and ships Priority Mail with tracking so you will have your adapters to you before your trip to Iraq. The Standard Adapter Plug Set for Iraq comes with three grounded adapter plugs. The Basic Iraq Adapter Plug Kit comes with three non-grounded adapter plugs. If you are not certain whether you will need a grounded or a non grounded adapter plug for your trip to Iraq, watch Going In Style's Adapter Plug Video featuring grounded and non grounded adapter plugs.
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 Grounded and Non Grounded Adapter Plug Travel Video
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. Be sure to buy grounded adapter plugs for your trip if you are traveling with grounded appliances.
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. If your appliance plugs only have two prongs, then purchasing non grounded adapters will suffice for your trip.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Iraq 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, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba 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. 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.
