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 Sri Lanka you will use: (and Colombo, Galle, Kandy, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Jaffna, Nuwara Eliya.)
|Plug Type D||Plug Type M||Plug Type G|
|Outlet Type D||Outlet Type M||Outlet Type G|
Perfect! This is very good! You will not need any sort of voltage adapter (they are always big, heavy and they can't handle too much energy. i.e. might have problems with hairdryers). You can plug your devices to the electric network grid in Sri Lanka without requiring a voltage adapter.
Ideal situation, all the connectors used in United Kingdom are also used in Sri Lanka. You will not need any adapter (but please check voltages and the other sections of this report). Congratulations!!!!
Lists of adapters you can use in your travel:
This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L into outlets type: M.
This adapter is extremely generic without loose terminal and finger protection, it does have earth pass-though which is a good thing; but it will not have a good grip because it support so many different plug types in only three generic slots; we don't recommend this adapter unless no better alternative can be found. i.e. a more expensive one.
