Yeah, most power supplies nowadays are auto-switching but it still a good idea to make sure as my wife has once borked her camera when plugging it in without a proper converter (her camera charger was not auto-switching).
Sometimes the power supplies are not auto-switching but do have a switch on the side to manually change it.
If not using such a power supply then you will also need a power converter.

|timlocke||90% of laptops have power supplies that can accept anything between 110 and 240V. My Lenovo does. But you should check yours. I believe the standard iPad charger does as well...mine does. In which case all you need is a simple 2 pin round to US 2 flat adapter and you are ok.|

I was on the first link before and this kind of confused me.
In addition, I'm not sure if the USB port on my laptop will charge my iPad so I may need a power converter in addition to an adapter.

For most of Europe you can use a two-prong round adapter. Make sure that the power supply you plug into the adapter accepts 220V. You can then charge other devices via USB from your computer.
A web search for electrical adapters should come up with something...

Power Adaptor for Paris France
I just found out that I have to fly to Paris this Saturday.
Can someone tell me what type of power adaptor I need to buy for my laptop?
In some brief reading, I see that France has its own unique plugs. Will the adaptor I use for my laptop be used to charge my iPad / iPhone? or do I need something else?
Also any recommendations on where to buy in Toronto?
thanks in advance
