Charging Laptop On a Cathay Pacific Flight Help

Good Afternoon,

I am flying from Manchester to Hong Kong on a Cathay Pacific flight next week and plan on using my laptop. I am trying to find out if I can simply plug in my standard plug charger or do I need to buy an adaptor. Please could some one help??

Thanks

Thanks for the reply but I had already looked at that website and still didn't understand. Does this mean I can plug in a standard UK plug on the place? I apologise if I sound stupid. Thanks

Here are some photos of power sockets on Cathay Pacific planes, a variety of cabins and aircraft.

As since charging in flight stated to be a common thing to do, I've only ever flown in their Business Class and you don't name a class. Bog standard UK 3 pin square was available and accessible in that class for sure..

Thanks to Hong Kong's historic UK connections, most power points there are same British 3 pin sockets, too.

It will have a standard UK plug or a USB and/or both.
