Does anyone know if these are dual voltage? I.E. I have the 120V US verison, does it support 220V also with the proper plug adapter? I need to know since I'm going to England in the fall and I need to charge my batteries :) The charger is from a Nikon D50

does it not say on the charger itself?
Usually there is the sticker which mentions the input and output voltages.. my AA charger says it is good from 90 to 240V

As tjalfe said, on any electric device there is a sticker indicating the supported voltages and frequencies.

My Nikon charger (came with a D100 in Europe) is dual voltage.

There is, but its not excactly clear (when chargers are dual voltage they are normally marked 120-240v) and I rather not run the risk of blowing a battery up.. :)

The only thing that kind of puts my mind at ease is the plug that goes into it is marked US on a tag...I guess I need to do some more research ;)

I intend to use my MH-18 and my D70, in Sep when I'll be in NY. Hope it'll work there.
At home, in Sweden we have 240V AC.

Well, it says 100-240 V ~ 50-60 Hz, so it shouldn't be a problem.

for some reason i thought all Nikon digitals used the same kind of battery.

Up to a degree.

The digital reflex cameras use a different battery from the rest (apart from maybe the top models in the 'compact' range).

The D70, D70s and D100 use the same battery (and all are compatible with a higher capacity battery that came out recently). The D200 can use these same batteries, but also introduced a new type with better monitoring capabilities. I think the D2x/h also use a different, more powerfull battery.

Most Electronic device chargers are 110/220V compatible. Never seen a European charger that wasn’t 110V compatible but I did see a US charger made to work on 110V only (some very cheap device, don’t even remember what it was).

Things like cameras, camcorders, cell phones, laptops etc., anything associated with travel is dual voltage compatible.

The only one thing that is NOT compatible with all of them and is …… electric outlet plug!
So, you’ll need something like this:
