Best answer:

Answer by  
Standard United States alternating current voltage is regulated at 110 volts. This is the amount of voltage that comes from any of the power outlets.

Standard Euro alternating current voltage is 220 volts. This is the amount of voltage that comes from any of the power outlets.

Pick the correct one depending on where you live, US or overseas.

Do understand that the Baofeng radios are considered amateur or business radios, so you would need a valid FCC license in order to transmit on them.
