K10D US charger in Europe?

I might buy a K10D from US and wonder if the charger is suitable for EU and perhaps UK plugs as well. I know we have different current voltages (US 110 and EU 220) but perhaps charger has a switch like computer PSU. The cable can be adapted in home...
What are your thoughts/experiences with this?

If I remember well (I don't have the book with me now), the charger is dual voltage, but you will need an adapter to put it in the electrical outlets in use on your side of the pond.

Have a look at the bottom of the charger.

You probably are not using US power plugs where you live.
You'd need to get a powercord with plug only.

It looks like all I'd need is a power plug adapter or a suitable cable. No need for power converter.
We have the same plugs as Germany.

Thank you for your replies.
