Default How to charge M in Italy and Prague?

I've read a few posts about charging in Europe (I am in the US) and still am confused. Is it not enough to use one of those adapter that have the round holes? What is the story with 110 vs 220 volts? etc.?

Thank you for any help; I'm leaving for Italy in a few days.

You will need to make sure that the charging adapter you're planning to use can work with 220 volt systems, otherwise you'll have yourself a smoldering mess. Just look at the charging adapter and look for a spot where it says "input voltage" or something along those lines. If it says "Input voltage: 100-240VAC", then you're fine, and all you'll need is the plug adapter. If, however, it only gives a range between 100 and 120VAC, then you'll need a voltage converter - or a different charger that can handle the higher voltage.

I took my official Creative charger to Europe and it was fine.

Yep. I used mine in the Middle East, and it worked quite nicely.
