So I just moved to china (beijing to be exact) about a week and a half ago. After extensive searching for a halfway decent apartment I was finally able to find one that I liked. I signed the lease and paid in full for three months (which is apparently normal) however upon inspection after moving in there is not a single grounded outlet in the entire place. Every single one looks like the picture in the link below. Now I would consider myself to be reasonably tech savvy (although more on the software side of things) but I cannot seem to find a way that I trust to power my Lenovo yoga 11s because the power adapter has a grounded plug. I did a little bit of research online that led to mixed results, because nothing was specific to China and grounds. I do have with me both surge protectors (that are also grounded) as well as a travel adapter that seems to go from non grounded to grounded however when I plugged on into the other and the wall there was a loud pop so I disconnected it. The little I have found online suggested maybe a uninterruptible power supply would be able to both solve the plug dilemma as well as keep voltage spikes to a minimum. Any one have any solutions of suggestions?

Also I'd rather not deal with my landlord too much as he seems to be something of a dirtbag so if we can avoid that I would prefer it.
