    Move to the US

    US domestic wiring is (as Andrew observes) 110/120V; sometimes, you will find 220V circuits to power washing machines and such, but the "normal" US 2/3-pin outlets are all 110/120V. Anything powered by an external universal power supply (e.g., laptops, equipment powered from switch-mode supplies etc.) should be fine - but always check the input voltage range stated on the power supply. Some equipment that was designed to be sold into world markets can be adjusted to suit the mains voltage via switches on the back panel - again, check the voltage specification stated by the manufacturer. Failing all that, get a step-up transformer that will convert 110 in to 220-240 out. The power rating needs to be greater than the sum of the power consumptions of all the devices that you plan to connect.
