    The Bridge power adapter of the US/Canada kits support 110-240V and the lamps are E26 fitting, supporting 110-130V.

    The Bridge power adapter of the European kits support 110-240V and the lamps are E27 fitting, supporting 220-240V.

    The US bulbs will not work in Europe and the European bulbs will not work in US.

  • Only if you buy from a store in Europe would it work in 220v. The bulb is specifically 100v or 220v. It is not dual voltage. I contacted Philips to get that official answer since they didn't post that anywhere.

  • Yes. they will work fine. For mainland Europe and the UK. For a traditional UK B22 bayonet fitting an adapter for £/€ 2 or so is available from most electrical wholesalers.
