Pretty straighforward, really, what electrical adapters do I need for my laptop in the UAE? It’s also my understanding that these don’t always work 100% and extended use tends to damage the equipment. Is that true?
If you laptop is like 95% of those available today, it has an autosensing transformer that will operate on either 110/120 volt and 220/240 volt systems at either 50 or 60 Hz. If this is the case, all you need are standard plug adapters to connect to the outlets.
From this website:
it appears UAE isn’t quite standard and uses both the standard Euro (two round plug) connector and the British plugs for their 220v system, so you probably should take an assortment.
