Subject: Electrical Converter for Italy

Is the outlet plug converter for US to Italian the same as US to UK? Saw a website that showed a plug with 3 straight prongs instead of 2 like the UK.

Need a converter plug for devices like laptop, battery chargers, etc., for 2 or 3 prong US plugs. We have a "universal" kit but looks like it only accepts 2 prong US plugs.

Can anyone suggest a good place to purchase (e.g., Radio shack?)?

Thanks in advance, Chuang family in Houston, Tx.
