I just looked at the power supply on my laptop, and it is specified for an input voltage from 110 to 240V, and frequency 50 to 60Hz. If your friend's is the same, then it will work over here without any modification except that a plug adapter will probably be needed.
Hi, I have a similar question. I live in the US and have bought a used Laptop for my 78-year-old mother visiting from the Uk to use in England. It's a Dell Latitude CPi D300XT and I am pretty sure it can handle the voltage.
I bought a plug adapter, and will get a phone jack converter too. I am concerned whether I need to get a new power cable according to the Dell Help info. I get differing info from various web sourcs, and Dell states, "you may need to obtain a new power cable rated for use with the level of electrical voltage in that country". The cable we have is an AA20031 input 100-240 V. Alos do I need to worry about zapping the modem?d
Is there anything else we should buy or are we safe not to blow up the laptop? I would really appreciate some advice. Thanks so much!

The mains cable as a three pin plug for UK but it goes into a general two pin on the adapter So earth is of no importance other than it lifts a safety gate in a UK socket so that things cannot be pushed into live without the earth pin being in
