Which power adapter will you need to use a hair dryer in Saint Vincent?

St Vincentian power outlet

Can I use my hair dryer in Saint Vincent?

Check your hair dryer can handle the voltage in Saint Vincent:

If not then:

  • Use a power converter (or voltage transformer) - you can then use your existing hair dryer and other applicances with a 230 volt St Vincentian power outlet, however this is substantially bulkier and more expensive than a dedicated travel hair dryer. A power converter will change the voltage but not the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit in the wall outlet used in Saint Vincent, so please check that the voltage transformer includes the correct power adapter for Saint Vincent otherwise you will also need to purchase a seperate power adapter. Please note - your own domestic hair dryer might not be suitable for travel and you risk damage in transit. [11] [AD]
Warning: If your hair dryer won't handle the 230 volts used in Saint Vincent you run a risk of an electrical fire hazard, blowing a fuse or damage to your hair dryer. Prior to using your hair dryer in Saint Vincent read the instruction manual to ensure safe operation.

Choosing the best travel hair dryer

Multiple speed options on a travel hair dryer

Choosing the best travel hair dryer

When choosing the best travel hair dryer look for a strong but lightweight dual-voltage dryer that will operate with a 230 volt St Vincentian power outlet power outlet with ALCI safety plug, a folding handle and a long cord. For drying thick hair look for one with a diffuser that has a higher 1600+ watt motor.

What should I look for when buying a blow dryer?

  1. The best travel hair dryers let you to control the temperature and speed with two options, a slower speed with a lower temperature will reduce damage to hair whereas faster hotter speeds can dry thicker wet hair quicker.
  2. It could be cheaper and more convenient buying a dryer that is supplied with both a diffuser and concentrator from the manufacturer instead of scouring stores looking for more expensive third party attachments which fit the barrel exactly.
  3. Depending on the hotel room there might be a mirror installed away from the nearest power outlet which makes it cumbersome to dry hair, therefore search for a model with the longest power cord possible or bring either a power extension cable or pocket mirror.
  4. Look for lighter travel dryers which are durable enough to survive being transported in baggage, models with a folding handle will mean more room.
  5. If you have thicker or curlier hair then you may need a travel blow dryer with a more powerful motor. A high wattage ceramic dryer which includes a diffuser will dry hair much faster to prevent damage.
  6. Safe travel hair dryers include ALCI safety plugs which will minimise the risk of overloading that could lead to fires - models can be recognised by the 2 reset and test buttons on the plug.
  7. Modern travel dryers could include a cool shot button for quickly cooling down the hair after drying to hold the style but this feature could be missing in smaller or cheaper models.
  8. A hair dryer has to support dual voltage in order to work in Saint Vincent.
  9. You shouldn't risk getting the cheapest travel hair dryer available - as well as issues with safety there is also a greater chance that the dryer could break during your trip abroad due to a poor construction.

Saint Vincent power outlets and plug sockets

What is the electrical frequency used in Saint Vincent?

The frequency found in a St Vincentian power outlet is 50 Hz. [18]

What is the mains voltage in Saint Vincent?

The typical voltage in Saint Vincent is 230 volts.

Which travel adapter will you need to use a hair dryer in Saint Vincent?

There are five different types of power outlets used in Saint Vincent, these are type G, C, E, I and K with the primary power outlets being type G:

  • Plug Type C - This unearthed wall socket (called a Europlug) is recognised by the 2 adjacent holes where the twin plug socket pins go.
  • Plug Type E - You can identify the plug socket by two round adjacent holes next to each other plus a single metal earth pin protruding the top forming a triangle configuration.
  • Plug Type G - This power socket (called a type G power outlet) can be recognised by the three slots with shutters forming a triangle configuration for live, neutral and ground pins.
  • Plug Type I - You can identify the plug socket by 3 slots forming a triangular shape with the top pair of slots sloping upwards for the live, neutral and ground.
  • Plug Type K - The plug socket, technically called a type K power outlet, looks like 3 holes in an upside-down triangular pattern for the live, neutral and ground.

A recommended travel adapter to bring when using a 230 volt hair dryer in Saint Vincent is a Type G power adapter - read the simple instructions below for full details of using a hair dryer in Saint Vincent with a power adapter. Be aware that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you will need to confirm if you also have to use a power converter.  [8] [19] [AD]

Which travel adapter will you need to use a hair dryer in Saint Vincent?

Dual voltage hair dryers

How can I use a dual voltage hair dryer in Saint Vincent?

  1. First check that you are using a dual voltage hair dryer and it will work with a 230 volt power outlet.
  2. If your hair dryer supports dual voltage then make sure it is switched to operate within the 220-240v range. The switch is normally found on the base or handle of the blow dryer and requires a coin or screwdriver to switch.
  3. Plug the dryer into the power adapter for Saint Vincent and then plug in the power adapter into the St Vincentian power outlet.
  4. It's common on most dual voltage hair dryer models operating within the 220-240v range to only work safely on their lowest speed setting - but this speed and temperature should still be sufficient enough for drying hair. We recommend checking the manufacturers guidelines to find out if this rule is applicable for your model of dryer to stop overheating.
  5. The hair dryer is now ready to operate in Saint Vincent.

How do I switch a dual voltage travel hair dryer?

  1. Normal dual voltage hair dryers have a dial or switch which toggles between two voltages however some hair dryers are capable of automatically detecting the voltage used in Saint Vincent.
  2. The dial or switch requires either a small coin or screwdriver to change the dryer to the right voltage between the 220v-240v range or the 110v-120v range.
  3. In addition to changing this over it is worth making a note of both switch positions as the painted numbers can sometimes rub off on certain models.
How can I tell if my hair dryer is dual voltage?

Single voltage hair dryer

How can I tell if my hair dryer is dual voltage?

One way to tell if your hair dryer will handle dual voltage is to check for either a sticker or numbers printed on the plug, base or handle of your hair dryer. This location will vary depending on the make or model of your hair dryer, it should also be written in the instruction manual. Some dual voltage models will change automatically but other hair dryers will have a switch which allows you to toggle between different voltages.

  • Single voltage could say a specific number - such as 110V. If this number matches the 230 volts used in Saint Vincent then you should be able to use your hair dryer with a St Vincentian power outlet.
  • Single voltage could also have a small voltage range with a dash to accomodate small voltage fluctuations - such as 100-120V. If the 230 volts used in a St Vincentian power outlet falls within the range shown on your hair dryer then you can use it in Saint Vincent.
  • Dual voltage will say a large voltage range separated with a slash - such as 100/240V. Your hair dryer will be capable of being used in Saint Vincent or any other country if these numbers are shown.

Travelling to Saint Vincent with a hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Saint Vincent?

Hotel hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Saint Vincent?

Depending on the individual hotel or bed and breakfast and class of the accommodation a hair dryer could be available in the room, either packed in a bedroom wardrobe, cupboard or drawer, found attached to a bathroom wall unit or could be a slower air hose type.

In cheaper motels, hostels and hotels a communal hair dryer might be available at the reception but that might involve waiting in turn for other guests. If in doubt as to hotel hairdryer policy then either call ahead to your hotel in Saint Vincent or check on the booking web site to find out what type of hairdryer is available to guests. Hotel hair dryers are usable but normally rudimentary models with no diffuser, notorious for low heat and slow air speeds. For those concerned with hygiene might want to check for grime from previous guests on a shared hair dryer as the hotel room service might not have removed this when cleaning the room.

Remember, if you are in doubt either telephone ahead to the hotel in Saint Vincent or bring a suitable dual voltage travel hair dryer [2].  [2] [AD]

Is it safe to bring a domestic hair dryer to Saint Vincent?

Bringing a dual voltage travel hair dryer is preferable to bringing your existing hair dryer to Saint Vincent (typically marked with 'For domestic use only') as it ensures that it will work with the 230 volt power outlets used with a St Vincentian power outlet (as long as you use the correct power adapter for Saint Vincent). Travel hair dryers normally feature a collapsible handle and will be much lighter, this will help in reducing the size and weight in travellers luggage compared to bringing a domestic hair dryer.

Note that bringing your expensive domestic hair dryer might place it at risk because of potential loss or damage in transit by an airline baggage handler. The inconvenience and costs of repairing an expensive quality domestic blow dryer in Saint Vincent could overshadow the costs of buying a cheap dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] and a suitable travel hair dryer case beforehand .  [20] [AD]

Can a blow dryer go in my carry on luggage?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Can a blow dryer go in my carry on luggage?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers there are no restrictions when bringing a mains powered hair dryer in your hand luggage through airport security in the United States. The TSA also recommends that you should verify that your airline which is taking you to Saint Vincent will allow a blow dryer onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the airplane. Packing the hair dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case leaves it easily accessible for airport security, it can be packed away quickly avoiding a tangle of cables in your carry on luggage (the TSA recommends wrapping wires tightly around electronic items such as hair dryers). If you intend to bring fragile or expensive blow dryers in your hand held luggage then it is advisable to use hard carry on luggage as this offers the most protection against knocks and bumps during transit.   [20] [21] [22] [AD]

Power converters for Saint Vincent

What is the difference between a voltage converter and a plug adapter?

Voltage converter

What is the difference between a voltage converter and a plug adapter?

A small, cheap and lightweight power adapter (or plug adapter) will change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit into a power outlet in Saint Vincent, whereas an expensive and bulkier power converter will convert a 230 volt St Vincentian power outlet to work with a non-230 volt hair dryer. [11] [AD]

Do you need a converter in Saint Vincent to use your hair dryer?

A suitable power converter (or voltage transformer) allows a hair dryer using a different voltage to work using a 230 volt power outlet used in Saint Vincent. Travellers wishing to bring along their own domestic hair dryer can use a power converter, but it might be less expensive to purchase a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] than it will be to purchase a power converter. A power converter is significantly heavier than a travel hair dryer making a power converter less suited for packing in luggage compared to a travel hair dryer. [11] [AD]
