Electrical Outlets - Plug adapter


I'm visiting Uruguay in September and will need an adapter for my laptop plug.  I'm not sure what to look for. I have a US and UK adapter, but not sure whether one of them will work in Uruguay.  How easy is it to buy one in Uruguay?

Thanks for your help in advance :-) Looking forward to hearing from you!

You're good on the voltage/frequency, but you'll need a socket adapter.

Thanks....we are coming in September as well.


Thanks Fred  :top:  I appreciate your help!

Most of the outlets here are three small round holes in a row. It is easy to find adapters in most larger supermarkets and hardware stores.
