Do I need a grounded adaptor? If your North American appliance plug has two flat blades and one round pin, your appliance is grounded. Modifies the following grounded appliance plugs to fit Italian electrical outlets: Australia/New Zealand/China, Continental Europe (requires model GGC Ground Collar when used with model SP2 EuroSurge Surge Protector or a Continental Europe (Schuko) plug to complete the ground connection), India/Middle East (5 Amp), Israel, North America, Switzerland and United Kingdom/Hong Kong.
Some countries use more than one type of outlet and you should carry the appropriate adaptor for each outlet listed.
Adaptor plugs DO NOT convert electricity; they simply modify foreign outlets. If your grounded appliance is multivoltage (120/240 or 100-240 volts) you only need a grounded adaptor plug. If the appliance is 120 volts only you need a grounded transformer to convert the voltage and a grounded adaptor plug to modify the outlet.
