Acer nitro 5

You will have to get a adapter for sure. Most laptop PSUs do support switching between 120V and 230/240V.

So I guess it will work. Otherwise you'd have to buy a aftermarket power cord. They are usually not to expensive

what do you mean by undervolt?

Setting the VRM to supply a bit less Voltage to the CpU, wich will correspond to less heat being produced.
