    The U.S.

    That looks like the type we use in the States... a bit different than the U.K. variety isn't it?

    Maybe you could get a US/UK adapter?

    Power Grid

    Hell Breath, is the UK on the same type of power grid as the US? Also, does the UK use alternating current or direct current? And what is the basic power strength; 120 or 220 or what? Last but not least; What power ac adaptor do you need? 6 volt, 9volt, 12 volt or what?

    Make sure you know all of the above. Should you get a hold of the wrong type of adaptor under the wrong set of circumstances, good bye appliance or real big fire...

    The US used 110V AC whilst UK use 240 AC (I think). To use that type of adaptor in the UK, you need a power converter which can convert voltage as well as converting the ends of the adaptor.
