Universal Travel Adaptor (comment to post)

“Universal adaptor is fine for imported goods to be plugged into Indian homes, but what happens when I take my Indian bought laptop to the UK or US (its plug is meant for Indian sockets only). Can the same adaptor be used there as well?
And I believe the sockets are different in Europe and US. Anyone has any idea on all the variations out there? Will be nice to have a list and to take care of all eventualities.
I once made a trip outside India without planning this out. It was a near disaster with the laptop power running out on me very quickly. Don’t want to go through that again.”
There is something called Universal Travel Adaptor which you could purchase in airports or major electrical stores.
What it has is, a variety of plug combinations to suit different countries on the rear and a universal socket arrangement in the front.
I have one with me and it is designed to work in pretty much all countries.
The thing to be noted here is that this will not convert voltages. So ensure that your laptop power brick/mp3 player charger/mobile charger all can work with voltages ranging from 110V to 230V.
