Do I need a voltage converter?



I have a BlackBerry Torch 9800 and I live in North America. I'll be traveling to Spain and the UK in the coming weeks, and I have the appropriate plug adapters to use in their power outlets there. I was wondering if my phone is already capable of handling 220 Volt power, or if I will need to use my voltage adapter with the phone in order to charge it?


Thanks for any information you can provide. Smiley Happy

Your charger already had the converter, you just need to use the correct plug adapter.
