The electric current in Sweden is 220 volts AC in 50 cycles. The Europlug, which has two prongs, is utilized in Sweden. Depending on the age of your small electronics, you may be able to get away with just using an adapter, but with power cords that show 100-240v/50-60 Hz you will want to get a converter/transformer.
British citizens who reside in the EU do not require a visa, regardless of the length of their stay. It is recommended however, that if you plan to stay longer than 90 days in Sweden, that they still provide residence documents.
