In addition to the likelihood that your existing adapter is
multi-voltage, I've been successfully using a universal USB adapter
with mine ever since I got it. I have both 12V to USB and 110-240V to
USB adapters as well as the USB to 2mm Nokia cable (which will also
charge from any USB hub or device with a powered USB host port,
including laptop and desktop computers), so I'm set for power wherever
I go. The same kit works with my cell phone, mp3 player, etc. It works
with basically any device for which a 5V input is acceptable. That
cuts down on a whole bunch of adapters when traveling.

The bonus is that the kit cost me less than $10, so if it gets killed
by the foreign power lines it's not a big deal. (Both of the AA NiMH
battery charges I took to London died - I still don't know why.) I
leave the original adapter safely at home.
