100v to 120v power?

Yeah it'll be fine. Most electromocs have a much higher mains input tolerance than you'd expect. Most electronics can allow a much lower voltage input than the sticker says, and the upper voltage limit is set by the caps inside the SMPS. Usually they're rated to 300-400v, but most electronics are designed to be used up to 240vac. 

 

TLDR, a 10-20v increase almost certainly won't matter.

Hi! I recently ordered a Japanese Playstation console for the purpose of legally playing region specific games. But Japan uses 100v power while the US uses 120v. Can I safely use the PS1 without damaging it or causing a fire? Or do I need to upscale the power to 120v with some kind of adapter?
