Note: * Member countries of the European Union are presently striving to achieve a common mains standard.
From 1 January 2004 the mains supply should be 230V (-6%, +10%), 50 Hz (1%). ie a range of 216.2 - 253V
This replaces the UK's former specification which was 240V 6% (ie a range of 225.6 - 254.4V)
Variations should still be anticipated in some areas as the voltage will drop during periods of heavy demand and rise during periods of low demand.

These websites give a more detailed survey of voltages and plugs although none of them are complete and they even contradict sometimes: http://kropla.com/electric.htm       http://mtecorp.com/elecurrent/pwchrt.htm      http://www.picotech.com/experiments/mains_voltage/results.html

Thanks to everyone who has contributed information here; either living in or visiting the above countries.
