Electrictiy

ElectricitySri Lanka uses 230-240V, 50 cycles,               alternating current. Over the past decade Sri Lanka has been plagued               by power cuts during times of drought when hydropower cannot be               generated. However, frequent power failures lasting from several               minutes to several hours can occur at normal times, too. The               majority of hotels have generators; so most visitors are not unduly               inconvenienced. Plugs are generally three or two round pins, but               bigger hotels often have three square pin plugs. It’s best to bring               a good adaptor with you, but they are available locally. More and               more visitors are bringing sensitive electronic equipment to Sri               Lanka, such as laptop computers. It is important, however, to bring               a voltage stabilizer, for the current does fluctuate, especially in               rural areas.
