I'm doing some research and it looks like most modern computer power supplies support 100-240 VAC and 50-60Hz, which means they can be used in either US or Europe as long as you have a power cord that fits the local outlets. Does that sound right?
@annika yup. Europe is generally 220-240V at 50Hz; and North America is usually 110-120V at 60Hz, so either one will work.
Additionally, those ranges also support the various other formats (Japan does 100-120V at 50Hz *or* 60Hz depending on where you are in the country, and I'm aware of 220V/60Hz, but I forget where).
I'm not aware of anywhere in the world where the main AC household system falls outside of that range.
@annika Pretty much yes, similarly for most electronics.
@annika that’s my experience, yep.
@libc Yeah, in my research a lot of modern power supplies auto-switch too (this is true for my PC's power supply, my NAS, and my PS4)
@annika Yup. I moved to Europe from the US, and all I had to do was buy new cables.
In one case, with an old PreP box, the power supply has a switch to switch voltages
@annika There's typically a switch on the back (exterior where the power plug goes in) that lets you convert from 110 to 220.
