Considerations for the United Kingdom

It is likely you will only find plugs-type "G" in the UK. Plug types "D" and "M" are considered very old and they are not common. We keep the old-plugs in our database as we don't know your exact destination. As a rule of thumb, you will probably be fine with the type "G" in hotels and big cities.

... and in Russian Federation you will use: (and Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Irkutsk, Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg.)

This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, D, G, I, M into outlets type: C, E, F, L.

This adapter has a safety protection so you don't plug only one terminal into the adapter while touching the other with your finger, because it is generic, when you buy it pay attention to this safety mechanism. Overall a good adapter that has the earth connection pass-though (notice the the metallic connector on the side.)
