Default Going to Europe... (? about charger)

Ok I just got a Zen Plus 4GB and going to Europe soon.
I dont think my friend brought his Mac Power Book (i'll e-mail) so I will have to buy the A/C Charger... does our (U.S.) outlets and plug-ins work with those in Europe? I need to know if my AC charger will work in Europe... I know their volts are different than ours (220v?).

Also, as far as I know, no where in the city I live can I find a skin/protector for my Zen. Where is the best place to get one online? Creative's website? I rear in cnet's review that the zen is very good with scratches, and that after a month of light abuse the reviewer could only see light scratches on it only at certain angles. He said that it is not NEAR as fragile/scratchable as an Ipod. Do you recommend buying a skin?

We use wasp plasma here in europe, electricity is sooooooooooo 2006
(just kidding - welcome to the forums )

Current is different so best thing is buying an adapter with a transformer too, as you dont want to plug anything needing 110v into 220/230. Most cheap adapters dont transform the current, as many ac adaptors do that themself (says on the ac adapter if it accepts 110 or 110-220/230).
if it only accepts 110, youll need a transformer too

Thanks for the reply!

I found a great ebay deal with ac adapter and skin and more... and in the ad says:

"*Compatible with 110-240v 50/60Hz AC input voltages."

Ok on my first playlist/synch I transferred 230 songs but the playlist has over 300... should I just re-synch the playlist? Not all of them are on my zen

Hmmm. Weird. Best I can suggest is manually syncing the missing songs.

good, but make sure you get a cheap adapter for the plug, as the european plugs are different. UK is different form european, too. european has two round pins, uk has to round and a flat
