> Most of Europe uses 220 volt

Actually Europe standardised on 230V in 1988 and most countries that I
know now have a nominal 230V supply.

However the tolerances on the supply are such that electricity
suppliers in the UK(240V) and other parts of Europe that were on 220V
have had no reason to actually change voltage, the original supply
still falling within 230 +/10%.  So French light bulbs burn a little
brighter in England.
