Hi all,

Is it possible to buy a power supply here in the US and use it in 240v countries? Almost all power supplies that I see has 110v - 240v as input or a switch to go from 110 - 240. So is it safe to just bring it to 240v country and just use it? Thanks,

As long as you're in the voltage and frequency range specified on the supply. You will need a new power cable in many parts of the world, of course.
