Power Adaptor Options

Seems like there is some confusion over which plug adaptors I need for an upcoming trip to India. I will be exclusively in New Delhi and am wondering do I need both GUE and GUF?

In India we typically use the three round pin type. Most sockets do not have options for a square or flat pin.

If you have a universal world adaptor, you can sometimes have some success by using the European two pin adaptor in the bottom two of the three India socket holes.

The safest option is to get a proper Indian adaptor. The area available in the UK over the internet, after a bit of searching, I'm sure the same applies to the US.
