Help! MX-1 charger JP/EU

So, a few days ago I bought a Pentax MX-1 from Japan, and just realised that the japanese power cord is not the same as the swedish/european one :/ I have a K-3 at home and know that the K-3s power cable fit the MX-1s charger. But, is the voltage the same? Will I be able to charge the MX-1 using the K-3s cable?

Kind regards, Henrik from Sweden

Look at the label on the charger and ensure that it supports 230V (usually you'll see a 100-240V range), and then you'll be good to go

I think all Pentax chargers are international these days, so it should work.
