Power adaptor?

This might seem a silly question but wondering, coming from the US, will I need a plug adaptor/converter for my charges and other electrical items?

Not a silly question at all. Years ago I went to St. Vincent and discovered that I could not charge any of my gadgets because of this plug issue :( I didn't know abt TA in those days so didn't know better lol

We in T&T use the same plugs as in US but I have also been in Hotels in Tobago that use UK plugs in their rooms.

If you know which Hotel you are staying at you can email them to ask. Most of them have adaptors but they are usually in short supply.

Check your charger as most are 100-220volt friendly and yes the standard is the Edison 'U' ground receptacle./plug.

Hotels whose clientele are mainly European may have 220 outlets as well .

All buildings here ( and in the US ) are supplied with 220volts as standard from the utility company.

. This is split to supply 2 x 110v 'legs'.

Larger appliances such as stoves, washing machines, dryers and a/c units are all 220v .
