Plugs, Sockets and Electrical Adapters in Sri Lanka

People who come to Sri Lanka often ask if it is necessary to bring some kind of electrical adapter to charge cell phones, cameras, etc. and what kind of thorns they will find on their journey.

It is a question that obviously arouses much interest. In addition to knowing what kind of plug they will find in different hotels and lodgings.

Well, to answer these questions is, to say the least, rather curious.


Types of plugs.

plugs and sockets in sri lanka

Standard in Sri Lanka
  • Type D: mainly used in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and some African countries

  • Type M: resembles type D, but with larger pins

  • Type G: this type is of British origin


Currently in Sri Lanka we have different types of plugs : flat and round.

Until recently there was no established standard.

For this reason we find different pin formats.

From 2016 flat plugs are installed and new installations have this type of plug.

Although, logically, there are still many old  plug-ins of different formats.

For this reason, we recommend that you bring electrical adapters when you travel in Sri Lanka.

It should be added that hotels of a certain category usually have and supply their users with electrical adapters.

If you are the kind of cautious traveler who likes everything well controlled, it is best to bring an electric adapter from your country, taking into account the different types of plugs.
