The UK used to be 240v while the rest of Europe was largely 220v. In around 2008, it was all harmonised by doing precisely nothing. :-) The standard EU voltage is now 230V with a tolerance of -6% to +10% which allows from 216v -> 253v. rob Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-05-18 19:00:05
