Bringing the correct plug adapters to Bahrain

Bahrain is a small island country located in the Persian Gulf. You may be planning a trip there. You may want to experience the warm climate, the culture, or to study something. However, you should know that Bahrain uses electrical plugs that are shaped differently from the ones you are used to in the United States. You might be planning to bring some of your electronics to Bahrain , but American-style plugs are not used at all in Bahrain . There are six different types of plugs that are used around the world, and most countries outside North and South America use the common three-cylindrical-pronged design. Bahrain uses this model, but also a two-prong design. But you do not need to buy new electronics in Bahrain in order to use any electronics there. You simply need plug adapters. Purchase both types that you will need in Bahrain , and be sure to buy the correct kind, keeping in mind there are six total plug types, and Bahrain only uses two.
Most places outside of North America also use a higher voltage current. 110v is the voltage used by North America and most of Central and South America. However, in most other continents, 220v is used. In countries where 220v is used, it is important to bring a voltage converter that has a 25% higher wattage rating than the appliance you are using it for. In Bahrain , the voltage used is 220v, the most commonly used voltage. So if you are going to Bahrain , be sure to also get a voltage converter . This does not apply if you are bringing dual-voltage appliances. However, single-volt appliances will need a voltage converter . The wattage should be indicated on the indication panel of the devices. If not, multiply the voltage by the amp. Then you can buy the correct voltage converter s for your selected appliances.

  1. It is not clear from this what is needed to operate laptop computers, ipads or iphones. This article is not clear about how much voltage is required for devices that are not “appliances” and have different voltage, but the voltage is not listed on the devices…such as laptop computers, ipads, iphones and other consumer electronics. Could you please explain what is required to properly charge and use these devices in Bahrain. In addition, you sell different kinds of converters with different voltages (220v/1600 v). Please explain what each kind of converter is used for — which are for electronics, which for hair dryers, etc. and how we are supposed to know which to use when the voltages are not listed on the devices.
