Check the Arc adapter and it will *likely* say "input 110-240V, 50-60Hz" in which case all you need is the adapter to be able to plug into the 4 prong outlet (most but not all electronics tend to be this way). Otherwise you need a TRANSFORMER to convert the power from 240V to 120V AND an ADAPTER to let you plug it into the 4 prong.
Thank You, I could not quite see the pictures on Stevov's replay above but what you say makes perfect sense (at last) so I will see if I can find the attachment, and yes the Kobo charger cord does support the voltage question.
