Advice on charging UK tech, plus mozzie plug in query

I have bought travel adaptors but someone said the voltage is a problem - do I need a voltage converter for UK equipment (mobile phones plus iPads)?

Also, are plug in mozzie killers easily available to buy on the island? I've had trouble finding anything in UK shops or online that will fit the island plug sockets. Advice welcomed :)

No voltage converter required. You just need a US two pin flat travel plug. Mobile phones and tablets will be fine, but hair straighteners will be on go slow unless your condo has a 240v socket.

You are ok.

Phones, ipads etc will charge ok with the UK chargers although obviously you will need US adaptors.

Adaptors are no use for hairdryers etc unless they are dual voltage.

As for plug ins you will find them in supermarkets but how about Amazon?
