Just in case anyone wanted to know.... A Squeeze box boom bought in the U.S. will work in the the U.K., you can run the plug through an adapter, or you can buy an attachment for the supplied plug for 99p online. I picked mine up for $149 which is about £95.

Most gear these days uses a switch mode power supply (SMPS) either internally or via a wall-brick; these are easy to design to accept 50-60 Hz AC line frequency and something like 90-260 volts AC input.
Hence my (UK sourced) Panasonic TZ5 camera power supply works fine in the USA and my USA-purchased COM One Phoenix internet radio works fine on UK mains; both items simply need plug adaptors.
It's the same with almost all electronic kit that I've bought over the last 3 or 4 years (phones, Blackberries, ham radio gear etc.) and about half have been bought during my (quite frequent) trips across the pond.
