Need urgent help - people I work with are traveling to UAE

What is needed in terms of power conversion to allow devices like laptops and cell phones to get power over there? Do I need to purchase a voltage converter and power adapters or can I just use power adapters and no voltage converters are needed?

    Most laptop power supplies and cell phone chargers can handle the 220v/50hz power in UAE. You just need the appropriate plug adapter (such as this one):

    You just plug your device into the adapter.
  2. This website says I can use the standard European travel adapters - is this accurate: http://www.walkabouttravelgear.com/c_abu.htm ?
  3. Yep, those are the same type as the link I posted earlier. Really not a big deal for laptops and cell phones.
