Also example "G" at this url is the previously mentioned "kettle" plug. This plug is analagous to the 3 prong plug ubiquitous in the US. Also found are 2 prong(round)outlets that are found a lot in bathrooms mainly for low current devices like electric shavers. Some of these also sense the required voltage, and deliver it. DONT try to plug a hair dryer into one of these.
Also, folks traveling to the UK are informed that the telephone system is electrically compatible with the US, which is true. However in the US the modem cable has the same phisical plug on both ends. Not so in the UK. The computer end is the same, but the wall jack has a different physical shape. I have few of these and would be happy to get one to you.
