No they only work in the American time zones.

At least I know the DS lites do!

Yes and no.

"Nintendo has reported that the DSi uses region locking for DSi-specific software, since the handheld provides Internet services tailored individually for each region, and uses rating-based parental controls which differ by country. However, elements such as Internet browsing, photo sharing, and Nintendo DS software are region-free."

Though you may have other uses for it such as R4/EDGE dsi equivalent. If so, other than finding a way to charge it up using a UK mains, you should be good to go.

It was stated clearly in my first reply, DSi specific software is region locked, though you are able to import DSi games. Standard DS software is regionfree.
