    Is anyone an expert on voltage issues? I want to be able to charge my iPod using a plug while in SE Asia. I have a device my friend passed along to me that says SWITCHING POWER SUPPLY. The input is 100-240V-.2A 50-60Hz. The output is +5V=1.0A MAX. My iPod says it's rated 5-30V-1A Max so it sounds to me like I could get an adaptor for the local plugs and use my SWITCHING POWER SUPPLY and it wouldn't fry my iPod. I don't want to buy/carry a heavy converter if I don't need to so I'd appreciate anyone's opinion. By the way, my SPS is a lot lighter than the electricity converter I saw at Radio Shack... if that matters? THANKS
