    Take a look at this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...220-volts.html

    It looks like you can if the charger supports 220v. I'd double check the charger capacity and make sure it's rated for it.

    Just look at the "Input" line on the charger label. If it says it goes up to 220 Volts, it'll handle 240 Volts. (That's a nominal value - it varies from country to country, but it's around 220-240.) Most electronic devices with wall chargers use switching supplies, which are designed to take anything from about 90 Volts to 250 Volts input without any problem. (It doesn't cost anything to design the supply to take a wider input range - it costs to maintain separate stocks of 115 Volt and 230 Volt chargers.)

    The only consideration is the plug - it has to fit the wall socket of the country you're in, and any electronics store sells adapters fromn almost anything to almost anything. (Although a locally-plugged charger would probably be cheaper - they all put out 5 Volts. Even a 2 Amp charger is pretty much a commodity these days, and doesn't cost much, unless you want a "name" on it, which doesn't do anything but give you a "named" charger.)
