Default Charging Zen Vision M outside the U.S.

I live in the Washington, DC area and got my ZV:M a few days ago. Next Tuesday I'll be leaving on trip to Asia. I'll be staying Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Thailand on this trip, and I want to be able to charge the ZV:M, since the battery will probably run down just on the flight over there (it's about 17 hours of flying time from DC).

I'm wondering if anyone here has been in a similar situation, and if so, how they charged the player in Asia.

I did do a search and found Creative's Universal Power Adapter, but frankly, that thing seems like overkill. The power supply that came with the ZV:M already runs on 100-240 volts (I think), so why doesn't Creative just sell those smaller plugs separately?

I also checked the site below, which features an "Electrical Connection Wizard" that will supposedly show you what adapter you'll need depending on where you're traveling.

The problem is that I'm not sure what to enter on that site. Here's all the info. written on the power supply that came with the ZV:M

Input 100-240 VAC ~50-60Hz Max .32A
Output 5V 2.4A

Input AC100V 50/60Hz, 28vA
Output DC 5V 2.4A

2.5A 125 VAC
2.5A 125V~

See why I'm confused? Please help me find something that's not going to fry my new toy the moment I plug it in to charge it. Thanks!
