    The print on my Galaxy charger is too small to read. Is the plug a 110-220 volt or is it just 110? This would mean that with the proper plug I could charge the unit while in Europe (not taking a computer with me).

    Pretty sure your only concern should be the plug configuration as the adapter will step down the current as needed.

    My charger says the input can range from 100 to 240 Volts AC at 50 to 60 Hz which means it will work anywhere AC is available. The output is 5 Volts. The input voltage is stepped down to 5 Volts.

    All you need is an adapter to match between the plug on your charger and the socket on the wall.

    Thanks all...I ultimately contacted Samsung yesterday and they said the same as you.
    As to the plug adapter...have it.
    Again, thanks for your responses.
