Hello all. This is a poll to see if there is any real-world correlation between charging a LW in countries with higher v lower voltage, and associated symptoms.

("In most countries the mains supply is 220-240 volts (50 or 60 Hz); countries that operate on 100-127 volts are greatly outnumbered Full list: Plug, socket & voltage by country - World Standards)

I'd be less worried about 110 vs 220 VAC, and more interested in 50 vs 60 Hz. Voltage difference pretty much just takes transformer windings to accommodate - but the frequency difference can result in heat if not properly designed for, and possibly longevity issues with the charging circuit. Not that there need to be any issues, if the charger was designed well....
