Hi, Philippe,

I recently purchased an Oly E-510. The charger says AC 100V-240V 50-60Hz. 
On page 108 of the manual, There is a paragraph on using your charger 
abroad.  I quote:

"The charger can be used in most electrical sources within the range of 100 
V to 240 V AC (50/60Hz) around the world.  However, depending on the country 
or area you are in, the AC wall outlet may be shaped differently and the 
charger may require a plug adapter to match the wall outlet.  For details, 
ask at your local electrical shop or travel agent.
Do not use commercially available travel adaptors as the charger may 

I hope this helps.
