You would need a transformer to change the physical plug that you connect it to, but that would only cost a couple of dollars tops. Make sure it's 110-240 voltage compatible before you buy it.
correction: a transformer is the device that converts 220V to 110V. not what you need (if you get a multi-voltage charger)
what aviationwiz menat was that you would need an adapter
so that you can plug your american AC adapter into a european/whatever wall socket.

most of them don't have a switch (well, not an external one that you have to flip manually). most of them automaticall detect the correct voltage themselves (it's not a sophisticated piece of equipment realy).
like i said in my previous post you can get chargers for rechargeable batteries that is multi voltage or is 220V
(scroll down and look at the kits)
