I'm afraid it may be 110 V only (especially if it was designed for the US
market only). If the power supply outputs a single +5 V voltage, it would
be easy to find an alternative solution for the power supply - if there
are multiple voltages (like 2.8 V or 3.3 V) used, things get more
Anyway, for $99, I want one, no matter what. ;)
