Dual Voltage Laptop?

I have a Studio 1535 and the US Air Force is sending me to Germany where the power is 220v vs. 110v.  How can I tell if my laptop is dual voltage and will be able to work without a transformer?  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

It should be. All my Dell laptops are.

But you will need a plastic adapter for the part the goes into the wall outlet. That will be different.

Look at the AC specs at the back of the AC adapter. It's probably listed as 100 - 240 Volts AC.

My poor AC power adapter had to each anything between 80 and 280 Volts AC.

It survived the treatment even the bad electrical grid of India - which is pretty much the benchmark for the worst possible grid.

You'll need a travel adapter OR an European power cord to plug the AC adapter into euro-style AC sockets.
