US Xbox with a European power supply

Hi! I'm moving to Germany from the US, and I want to bring my (US) Xbox 360 slim with me. I know there is a voltage difference, 110v being the US voltage and 220-230v being the European/German voltage, so I'll need a new power supply. My question for anyone who knows or has experience with this is whether I need to get a power supply that's compatible with BOTH 110v and 220v, or can I just get the 220v power supply once I'm in Germany (where they are ample)? Microsoft doesn't sell the dual voltage power supplies anymore (I called and asked), which is why I ask.

Alternatively, does anyone know whether I can just take my 110v power supply and use it with a transformer in Germany?

Thanks!

You will need a 220v power brick for the country you are in,Germany in your case.

Do not use any kind voltage converters/transformers as they can damage your console.

Thanks! Just to be totally sure, you think my US xbox can handle 220v? I'm just worried that without a dual voltage power supply that can go between 110v and 220v it will explode, or something.

It will handle 220v just fine.You can use any 360 in any country as long as you have the right power brick.

Hello! I was just wondering if this all worked out okay? I am in your exact same position right now haha. Please let me know! Also did you buy an official MS Xbox EU power brick or a 3rd party one?

Thanks!
