Seems like that might cause problems down the road if it's always running on less voltage than spec. Not an electrician, so pls dont kill me if I sound clueless about power and voltage.
I ordered replacement bricks for both of mine, they ran on the original bricks with the "stickers" for 1-2 weeks respectively without fire or doom, but you could smell them getting a little warm.. I bought a couple off of eBay to replace them, and have been fine - will almost 100% be way cheaper than stepping up 110V to 220-230V, since that requires a little more to be done properly (if you were just running your shaver or hair dryer, that would be one thing, but what you need for electronic equipment will be bulky (transformer) or questionable output quality (switching) -- you prefer the bulky in this case). The adapters were under US$25 delivered priority mail each.
