Which plug adapter do I need to use a hair dryer in Saint Kitts?

St Kitts power outlet

Will my blowdryer work in Saint Kitts?

First check that your hair dryer can handle the voltage in Saint Kitts:

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 Kitts power outlet, however this is substantially bulkier, heavier and more expensive than a dedicated travel hair dryer. A voltage transformer changes the voltage but won't change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit in the power outlet used in Saint Kitts, therefore check that your power converter comes with an appropriate power adapter for Saint Kitts otherwise you will also need to purchase a seperate power adapter. Be aware that your own existing hair dryer might not be suitable for travelling and you risk damage in your luggage. [11] [AD]
Warning: If your hair dryer won't handle 230 volts you run a risk of damage to your hair dryer, an electrical fire hazard or blowing a fuse. Prior to using your hair dryer in Saint Kitts read the instruction manual first to ensure safe operation.

Using a hair dryer in Saint Kitts

Will my hair dryer work in Saint Kitts?

That will depend on if your hair dryer can operate using the 230 volt power outlets in Saint Kitts. If you're using either a dual voltage hair dryer or your hair dryer can operate using 230 volts and you have the correct plug adapter then you can use your hair dryer in Saint Kitts. If not then you will need to consider buying either a power converter or a dual voltage travel hair dryer [2]. Read our section on will a power converter work with your domestic hair dryer in Saint Kitts for help deciding which option is more suitable. [11] [AD]

Choosing the best blow dryer for Saint Kitts

Choosing the best blow dryer for Saint Kitts

When looking for the best hair dryer choose a robust but lightweight dual voltage model which will work with a 230 volt St Kitts power outlet power outlet with a long power cable, a folding handle and ALCI safety plug. For drying thick hair look for a stronger 1600+ watt motor and included diffuser.

9 tips for buying a new travel hair dryer

  1. Safe travel hair dryers will include an 'ALCI' safety plug which minimises the danger of overloading the motor leading to starting electrical fires - you can idenfity these with reset and test buttons.
  2. Buying the cheapest dryer is risky, as well as concerns with safety there is also a greater chance that the dryer could fail during travelling abroad due to a flimsy construction.
  3. Thicker hair might require a travel blow dryer with a more powerful motor - a higher wattage ceramic model which includes a diffuser will dry hair much faster, thereby avoiding damage.
  4. To operate in Saint Kitts the hair dryer needs to be dual voltage.
  5. Hotel rooms in Saint Kitts might have a fixed mirror positioned away from a outlet which makes it difficult to use the travel dryer, so search for the lengthiest power cord available or use either a hand mirror or a power extension cable.
  6. A cool shot button on a modern hair dryer will rapidly cool hair down after drying which will hold in the style but this feature might be lacking in smaller or cheaper dryers.
  7. Instead of looking for expensive 3rd party attachments to fit the dryer barrel size perfectly it could be cheaper and more convenient to buy a new hair dryer which is supplied with both a diffuser and a concentrator.
  8. Try to look for a lightweight travel hair dryer which is durable enough to survive being transported in baggage, models with a handle which folds mean more space.
  9. The best travel hair dryers for styling will allow you to change the speed and temperature with 2 options, a hotter faster speed can dry thicker wet hair faster whilst slower speeds with lower temperatures prevent damage to hair.

Saint Kitts power outlets and plug sockets

What is the mains voltage in Saint Kitts?

The normal residential voltage used in Saint Kitts is 230 volts.

What electrical frequency is used with a St Kitts power outlet?

The frequency from a St Kitts power outlet is 60 Hz. [18]

Which power adapter do you need for using a hair dryer in Saint Kitts?

There are four types of power outlets used in Saint Kitts, types G, A, B and D with the primary power outlets being type G:

  • Plug Type A - This wall outlet, also called a type A power outlet, is recognised by the two thin adjacent slots.
  • Plug Type B - You can recognise the plug socket by the 2 slots parallel to each other with a single semicircle shaped hole below for the slightly longer earthed pin.
  • Plug Type D - You can identify this wall outlet by 3 circular holes in a triangular shape for live, neutral and earth pins.
  • Plug Type G - You can identify this wall outlet by 3 slots containing shutters forming a triangular shape for live, neutral and earth pins.

A Type G plug adapter allows you to use a 230 volt hair dryer in Saint Kitts; read the simple guide below for full details of how to use a plug adapter for Saint Kitts. Note that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you might also need to bring a voltage converter.  [8] [19] [AD]

Which power adapter do you need for using a hair dryer in Saint Kitts?

Dual voltage hair dryers

How can you tell if your hair dryer is dual voltage?

Single voltage hair dryer

How can you tell if your hair dryer is dual voltage?

An easy way how to tell if your hair dryer can support a dual voltage outlet is to look for either a sticker or numbers printed on the base, handle or plug of your hair dryer. This location might depend on the make and model of your hair dryer, it should also be written in the instruction manual or on the box. Some dual voltage models might change automatically, however other hair dryer models will have a switch which allows you to operate between different regions.

  • Single voltage could say a specific number - such as 110V. If this number matches the 230 volts used in Saint Kitts then you should be able to use your hair dryer with a St Kitts 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 Kitts power outlet falls within the range shown on your hair dryer then you can use it in Saint Kitts.
  • 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 Kitts or any other country if these numbers are shown.

How do you switch the voltage on a travel hair dryer?

  1. Most dual voltage hair dryers have either a dial or switch which selects between 2 voltages however some dryers are capable of automatically detecting the voltage used in Saint Kitts.
  2. The switch or dial will normally require either a small coin or screwdriver to set the hair dryer to the correct voltage between a 220v-240v range or a 110v-120v range.
  3. Also, it's worth jotting down both switch positions as the painted numbers are prone to fading on certain models of travel hair dryer.

How can you use your dual voltage blow dryer in Saint Kitts?

  1. Check that you are have a dual voltage hair dryer and it will work with a 230 volt power socket.
  2. If the dryer is dual voltage then make sure it is set to the 220-240V range. This is usually found on the handle or base of the hair dryer and requires a coin or screwdriver to switch.
  3. Plug your hair dryer into the correct power adapter for Saint Kitts, then plug in the power adapter into the St Kitts power outlet.
  4. It's common on a majority of travel hair dryer models operating in the 220-240 volt range to only work safely on a low setting - but this temperature should be adequate for drying hair. Check the manufacturers guidelines to find out if this rule is applicable for your model of dual voltage hair dryer to prevent the risk of overheating.
  5. The hair dryer can now be used with a St Kitts power outlet.

Travelling to Saint Kitts with a hair dryer

Is a hair dryer allowed onboard a flight in Saint Kitts?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Is a hair dryer allowed onboard a flight in Saint Kitts?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers there is no restriction on bringing a mains powered hair dryer in your hand luggage through airport security in the US. The TSA suggests that you should verify that the airline who is flying you to Saint Kitts will allow a blow dryer onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the aircraft.

Packing your blow dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case leaves it easily accessible when going through airport security, it can be packed away quickly avoiding a tangle of cords in your carry on luggage (the TSA advices wrapping cords tightly around electronic items such as hair dryers). If you intend to pack fragile or expensive hair dryers in your hand held luggage then it is recommended to bring hard carry on luggage as this offers the most protection against knocks and drops during transit.   [20] [21] [22] [AD]

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Saint Kitts?

Hotel hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Saint Kitts?

It will all depend on the individual hotel or bed and breakfast and the class of the accommodation. Hotel room hair dryers are typically found in the bathroom, these could be a slower air hose variety, or might be located in a bedroom cupboard, wardrobe or drawer.

In cheaper hotels, hostels and motels a shared hair dryer could be available at the reception, however that might involve waiting in turn for other guests. If in doubt as to hotel hairdryer availability you should either look on the booking web site or telephone the hotel in Saint Kitts to find out what is available for guests. Hotel hair dryers are usable but are typically basic models with no diffuser, notorious for low heat and slow air speeds. Those worried about hygiene should remove grime from other guests on a communal hair dryer as room service might not have removed this when cleaning the room.

For guests who aren't sure that a suitable and hygienic hair dryer is readily available should put their mind at rest by bringing their own Dual voltage travel hair dryer or call ahead to their hotel in Saint Kitts to check beforehand.  [2] [AD]

Is it safe to bring my domestic blow dryer to Saint Kitts?

It is preferable to bring a dual voltage travel hair dryer rather than bringing an existing domestic blow dryer to Saint Kitts as it is safer to assume that it will work with the 230 volt power outlets used with a St Kitts power outlet (provided that you bring the correct plug adapter for Saint Kitts). Some models of travel hair dryer will typically feature a folding handle and will be much lighter, this helps in reducing the size and weight in luggage compared to packing a domestic blow dryer. Note that bringing an expensive domestic blow dryer could place it at risk because of potential loss or damage in transit by airline baggage handlers in Saint Kitts. The cost and inconvenience involved in repairing an expensive quality domestic hair dryer in Saint Kitts might be more than purchasing a cheap dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] and a suitable travel hair dryer case before setting off .  [21] [AD]

Power converters for Saint Kitts

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

A power converter (or voltage transformer) allows your hair dryer using a different voltage to operate with the 230 volt power outlet used in Saint Kitts. Travellers who want to use their own domestic hair dryer can use a power converter, however it could be more costly to buy a power converter than it is to buy a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2]. In addition, a travel hair dryer can be noticeably smaller and lighter than a power converter making a travel hair dryer more suited for packing in luggage. [11] [AD]

What is the difference between a power adapter and a power converter?

Voltage converter

What is the difference between a power adapter and a power converter?

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 found in Saint Kitts, however an expensive and bulkier power converter transforms a 230 volt St Kitts power outlet to work with a non-230 volt hair dryer. [11] [AD]
