Footmouth Mini USB question ...

Short background on the new guy. I'm prepping myself for the Note 2 (First phone that caught my attention since the original EVO, which I still have) which involved me buying a screen protector, case, and the Samsung BT S pen. Long story short, my hands get messy at work, be awesome to use the pen in that situation and since I loathe ear pieces, I think it's the perfect fit. But, there's one point I'm not sure about.

I couldn't find a US version of it, so I settled for the South Korean version sold on EBay. The pen uses a mini-USB port, but obviously the wall outlet plug is S. Korean in design. Am I right in assuming that I can use my American mini-USB charger on the pen with no ill-effect? While we use 110-120V, they use 210-220 but I would think every mini-USB plug converts the juice it's being supplied the same way, and that I'd be okay to use the charger I have here.

Or, am I to buy a travel adapter?

Thanks so much in advance!

USB chargers with microUSB plug have become a standard, but not the older charger with miniUSB.

So the save way would be to use a travel adapter

I'd have a look at the specs, charger output and pen input of voltage and amperes.
5V of the charger and 5V of the pen, and more amperes (mA or A) of the charger's output than of the pen's input should be save.
