If you buy a mobile online from some far off land & it comes with an EU two pin charger, here's a solution for £1 that you can go to the shop & get on the same day.

It also takes 3 bladed plugs from Australia, New Zealand, China & Argentina etc which you can see from the shape in the image.

This has a three pin UK plug on the back, its not intended for travel, unless your destination uses UK plugs.

Make sure it is fused as most are not and you wont be protected if it shorts out , had a bad experience with a cheap chinese fish heater, fried my fish and nearly electrocuted me!
If there's no Poundland nearby, they're £1.29 delivered from Amazon with a 13amp fuse (I checked).
You also need to check you can't put just one pin of the appliance's plug into this adapter, with the other hanging over the side.This adapter looks sufficiently wide to prevent this but, if you can, it can be potentially lethal.
In an unusual twist, the fuse in my computer cable has blown & so I am using the adapter with an EU cable I take abroad with me.

So the adaptor does have a fuse, & the pins cannot pass the outside & electrocute you.
