Voltage conversion question?

Asked by 2davidc8 (9650points) April 3rd, 2011

I have some electrical devices (for example, battery chargers) which list acceptable input as
100V-240V AC 50/60Hz, or sometimes as
both 110/120VAC 60Hz and 220/240VAC 50–60Hz.
Does this mean that I can plug these into electrical outlets in, say, Europe where the electricity is 220 volts without the use of a voltage converter? (Maybe just need an adapter.)
Has anyone tried this, and how did it work?
